Pink Friday 2 on the Billboard Charts

This December, Nicki Minaj released her long awaited studio album “Pink Friday 2” and of course her loyal fans will lose their minds every time this lady speaks. In the first week alone, she sold 300,000+ copies. What this means is that she outsold the prequel “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012)” by more than 50,000 units making it her best release since then. Still only debuting at #2 on Billboard 200 unlike its predecessor which came in at #1.

Cheater, Cheater, Glitter Eater

Since the release of PF2, Nicki has revealed that Billboard will dismiss 100,000 units in her first week sales. Why? Because the girl cheated. She ran a fan contest original announcement about the contest — which is now deleted — read, “Show the PROOF of your 4 vinyls OR 4 DIGITAL DOWNLOADS (each cover) [of PF2] & you can win… A [chance] to help me pick the next 3 songs for the #GagCity2 edition that comes out in 5 days. In person ;)”

I’m sorry maybe you aren’t hearing me. She was already estimated to sell 200k first week. Then turns around and has a “100 Barbz” contest. In which they have to buy 4 editions of the album. If only 100 Barbz participated it would provide her with an extra 400 sales (quick math). However, we’re talking about a variance of 100,000 units and there’s no way on God’s green Earth that only 100 individuals participated. So yeah, Billboard said cut it.

You can give out millions in cashapp money though…”

Business or B.S.

There’s always a Devil’s advocate, so of course there are a plethora of people who see absolutely nothing wrong with her actions. “Sounds like good marketing to me,” one social media user wrote. “She knew she couldn’t keep up with my girl,” another wrote. Chileeee, I’m going to stay out of this one. But, what do you think? Does Nicki deserve to keep those excess sales? Or is she just trying to play the charts?

Let me know in the comments how you feel about Nicki Minaj and her new project!
