Nicki Minaj Stressed Out Over "Pink Friday" Sales

Young Money CEO Mack Maine has revealed that Nicki Minaj has begun worrying about the first-week sales of Pink Friday, as it is scheduled to release next month.


According to Maine, Minaj has looked at labelmate Drake's initial Thank Me Later sales as an example what her opening sales could equate to.

"She was worrying about first week. She was like, 'Drake sold [463,000]. What you think I'ma sell? As if she gon' sell less," recalls Maine. "I explained to her, 'You know a lot of the press and the media really got it brainwashed with first week sales.' Bieber went on to sell 2 million and Bieber might have only sold 17,000 the first week. Juvenile sold like 30,000 his first week of 400 Degreez and went on to sell 6 million...I don't know what happened to working the record and making sure that the artist reaches a certain point. I rather the end number be higher than the beginning. These days, it's all about: Let me do 500,000, a million the first week. Don't get caught up in what Wayne did. You don't want your pinnacle to be your first-week sales. Then everything's downhill from there and then what? I don't care if you sell 10 the first week and you go on to sell 5 million--we did better than the person that sold 300 the first week." (VIBE)

That's one thing that's wrong with the game right now, people are so focused on sales and big first week numbers. It was a bad move to drop it the same day as Kanye IMO. It's either going to make ppl buy both albums or have to pick one album out of the two, which will most likely be Kanye's.
I will say this tho, she has a heavy fanbase of young girls and f*gs. That'll be her push right there.

Ding! That's why it is a good move. Plus, lets say a store sells out of Kanye's joint. People are still in there looking for gifts or something to buy. When you KNOW people are IN the store, holding :cash::cash::cash: in their hands, you better make sure your s**t is right there, hot out the oven. It's not a mistake to come out when Kanye does, it's a mistake not to.

Didn't read. But I don't think she'll do that bad. What she should be concerned about is the quality of music on the album. In time the album will sell itself if the material is good.

If she doesnt its a complete fail,considering the way she has been hyped and all the magazines and all she has been in and the endless features she has had

If she is ever to do big numbers it has to be with this album
