Young Money star Nicki Minaj is not letting the theory of a sophomore jinx wear her down, claiming she believes the new Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will outsell its 2010 predecessor.
Asked about her thoughts on the sophomore jinx, Minaj went on to bash the theory.
"H*ll no! This album is gonna sell so much more than Pink Friday," Minaj told radio host DJ Clue. "Ask me this question two years from today, Clue. With me, I'm never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. I'ma travel, I'ma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz everywhere, and this is my first time I'm gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thing." (Power 105.1)
Recently Minaj said she hoped the new album would inspire her followers.
"If there's one thing I want people to take away from it, it's just that little girls can aspire to be anything, and that's all I want people to see," Nicki said in an interview. "Whether you follow Nicki Minaj's blueprint or not, just don't be afraid to experiment and don't allow people to knock your hustle just 'cause it ain't something that you're used to seeing." (MTV)
Last week, Cash Money head honcho Birdman called Nicki the best rapper alive.
"I say she is, but if she's not today, within time she will be. No female ever will be able to sell more records than her, have more singles than her, have more number one singles than her, have more awards--no more nothing. She had the most singles by a female last year. Her accomplishments are gonna speak for themselves." (Complex)
Having sold over 1.7 million copies to date, Minaj's Pink Friday debuted at number two back in 2010.
