Disappointment? Yes. Flop? Lol. At least this debunks the tired "Birdman buys all the albums" excuse. Yall are pretty terrible though. Had she sold a lot, yall blame it on Birdman. She sells 250k which is still very good for hip hop artists today, and yall yell FLOP. The same ones yelling flop are the same ones who say "sales don't matter". Well if they don't matter when you do good, then why all of a sudden do they matter when somebody does less than expected? Kinda hypocritical, but that's hip hop fans in general. She'll still go platinum, I guess that's a flop in 2012?

Obviously it's a success. Any #1 album is a success.

But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that this is 100k less than her debut and that the album received a huge amount of promotion compared to others that performed in the same ballpark.

Personally I'm just happy that it seems to reflect her abandonment of the urban audience. That's cool and all but now she'll have to drive long-term success through single success....kinda like other pop artists.
Sounds like what I've been saying for the past 2 weeks regarding the issue. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

252k will never be a flop but for all the hype u would think she would have a bigger 1st week. wayne did a mill nick only does 252??? i didnt think there gap was that different . but she will go plat in a month or so and will have mult plat singles so its a win overall. but u would think she could do close to gold 1st week.
Wait who expected her to sell anything close to what Wayne did? Who expects anyone to sell close to a million? Wayne and Mack Maine them selves cast major doubts on being able to pull a million off.



Didnt know a Sophomore disc offering from a FEMALE artist was expected to sell the same as an artist with multiple plaques + more than 10 years worth of mainstream success


If labels had the same expectations as some of you, nobody would be signed. The only artist on a major label would be Lil Wayne if labels had the same attitude as the rest of you


The honest truth is while a group of kids on boxden call her a flop, shes going to spend today celebrating with her label mates and popping bottles because they just registered another number 1 album debut. Soon after she'll be starting a world tour, because thats what you do with flops, you tour the world with them

It's a flop because of the PROMOTION OVERHEAD, PINK FRIDAY HAD DRAKE LIKE PROMO ( WORD OF MOUTH, BILLBOARDS, COMMERICALS) THIS ALBUM HAD AI, TODAY SHOW, NIGHTLINE, TIME SQUARE PROMO WHICH IS COSTLY, THEN TO TAKE A 125,000 DROP FROM 1ST ALBUM DEBUT, & WAYNE & DRAKE ALBUMS WERE OVER 500K FLOP. HER US & UK 1ST WEEK = 380,000 TO HER 375,000 1ST ALBUM DEBUT US ONLY FLOP!!
i hate to be a armchair a&r on bx like these other lames, but all this is pretty much on point.

252K is good for the industry standard, but for Nicki Minaj, it probably isn't quite what she or YMCMB expected. You can't deny it, 252K for Nicki and her pop songs (which, by the way, has been flooding the radio from the time her debut dropped, to Super Bass, to this album), is a "flop".

I mean, really, she sold just a little more than J. Cole, and J. Cole had little buzz relative to Nicki's.
