Nicki Minaj is looking to have a strong first week with her sophomore release Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
According to Hits Daily Double, the project is expected to sell 200-250,000 copies in its first seven days on the chart and debut at number one on the Billboard 200.
"[The evolution of my career has] just been peeling back the layers and now, it's like the ultimate layer was me saying, 'Now I'm going to do whatever kind of music that I want to do'…[it's] not always going to entail a hard Hip Hop beat, but sometimes it is," she said. "A lot of the tracks on [Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded] are a hard Hip Hop beat and just spitting, and that's why I've been [working with] some people like Cam, 2 Chainz and the legendary Nas. I got those people because…I wanted to get back to [just rapping]. I wanted to remember what it felt like when I just wanted to show people that I could rap."
