  1. And she had more going for her this time around.

    I'm pretty sure her debut's numbers last time were from having a strong urban backing but also the actual release time of the album was more in her favor.

    Oh Nicki. Hope it picks up.
     
  3. Ya just read an "article" on ThatFlopJuice about it. They did make some good points though. Like she has much more exposure and the singles are performing better. I think this will outsell it by far in the long run though. She has at least 8 singles that have potential. Right By Your Side should be big too I think. I actually love it. Especially the first verse.
     
  4. I don't get how Roman can be both gay and into rap without ever wanting to duet with Khia. Madness.
    Beez In The Trap's line about biscuits would have benefited from Khia going on about her cookies. A missed op.
     
  5. Well, in all fairness, Pink Friday was out during Black Friday week.

    And, let's face it, the songs she decided to release in anticipation of the album were far from the best she could have chosen. At least Starships is doing okay for itself!
     
  6. Just counted 14 Nicki songs in the iTunes top 100 (including collaborations). Fucking hell thats impressive.
     
  7. I thought she'd be on far more than that. I wasn't expecting Drake numbers, but probably around 400k.
     
  8. Erm, why? Because all gays love terrible, generic, underwritten dance songs?
     
  9. As a unit of work, it's weaker than her first.

    But it's got a higher number of great rap songs, and the pop tracks are thoroughly entertaining.

    She still hasn't got it quite right. But she's so close.
     
  10. Outside of like 6 songs, Pink Friday was forgettable for me, so I actually prefer this album on the virtue of it including more rap songs and cutting back on the number of mediocre light R&B songs. Though I concede that her debut probably worked better as a cohesive album than this does.
     
  11. For me, the list of great rap songs from each album are as follows, though obviously the definition of rap is a little hazy in places.

    Roman's Revenge
    Did It On Em
    Muny
    Blazin
    Blow Your Mind
    Wave Ya Hand
    Here I Am
    I'm The Best
    Super Bass
    Dominoes

    Vs.

    Roman Holiday
    Come On A Cone
    I Am Your Leader
    HOV Lane
    Roman Reloaded
    Champion

    I think the further list outpaces the latter not just in volume but quality.

    Also, Save Me DESTROYS Fire Burns, Marylin Monroe and Young Forever combined.
     
  12. Re: Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2nd Studio Album)

    Just found this post there. So ironic, pretty much of all the first and second page are full of communists want rap Nicki with "one SuperBass".

    The rap was much stronger on her debut, but she's definitely made better pop music here, though none of it matches Super Bass.
     
  14. The difference is that a majority of the songs themselves on her debut were shit. The rapping was fine but the overall quality of the tracks was lacking.
     
  15. Just listened to the press conference. Annoying as shit.
     
  16. I'm kinda tempted to say I prefer this to the debut. The first album has some amazing moments ('Moment 4 Life', 'Save Me', 'Blazin'), but this is ridiculously strong too.

    Also, 'Gun Shot' is so underrated. It's one of my favourites...I just really need to learn the lyrics 'cause at the moment I don't have a clue.
     
  17. I actually do prefer 'PF:RR' over 'Pink Friday'... </unpopular opinion alert!>

  18. Um... so let me get this straight.

    Music's a business?

    And I've only listened to a few tracks so far, but I really like "Marilyn Monroe." Not brilliant by any means, just a fun pop song that's easy to listen to. Most of her songs seem to be that way for me.
     
  19. I am this close to just up and buying the physical deluxe version, just becaues I have the physical deluxe of Pink Friday and I am a completist.

    NOOOOO.
