Nicki Minaj Says Some Retailers Won't Carry Her New Album &

Nicki Minaj explains how some retailers wouldn't take a chance on her new release.

To commemorate the release of her sophomore album re-release Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up, Nicki Minaj stopped by Power 105's The Breakfast Club to discuss everything from her feud with Mariah Carey and her clothing line.

She also addressed how the new album wasn't picked up by Target and Wal-Mart, explaining that they didn't want to take a chance on selling a repackage and that it's setting her up for failure.

"It's hard to get hte album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well, and they didn't want to take a chance," she explained. "So Target and Wal-Mart is not selling the album, and Target is actually my biggest retailer. They've always been my biggest retailer. So they sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever. So thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this one. Best Buy only took limited because they were like, 'We want to play it saafe.' It sets you up to fail. But at the end of the day, I'm happy to put the album out."

She also revealed that she launched a new record label, signing her first artists Parker and Brinx. Watch the full interview below.
