Nicki Minaj Will Re-Release ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ This November
Roman just got reloaded again. Nicki Minaj announced that she will re-release her sophomore album, 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' this November.
Minaj announced the news on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, telling E! News (via MTV), "I'm releasing my album in November. It's called 'Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up,' and I'm putting lots of new songs on there. I'm actually going to drop my new single next week. So Barbz, you are going to spaz, you are going to love it, you are going to go crazy."
The timing of the single and album release are strategic. Not only will 'The Re-up' hit shelves in time for holiday shopping, but it will hit close enough to her Pink Friday: Reloaded tour to up sales for both units and tickets. Also bolstering her success? The Harajuku Barbie's controversial 'Mercy' verse with Lil Wayne and her stellar collaboration with Alicia Keys on the 'Girl on Fire (Inferno Version),' which they performed alongside Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas at the VMAs.
Though the original 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' got mixed reviews, it's still earned Minaj many accolades. Her hit single, 'Starships,' though panned by Pete Rosenberg, snagged the VMA for Best Female Video at the Sept. 6 awards ceremony, resulting in one of the most entertaining and admittedly baffling reactions we've ever seen.
