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 Harajuku Barbie recently spoke on returning to her rap roots for the LP, which features contributions from Cam’ron, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Drake and more.

“[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.”
