Earlier this year, Nicki predicted the LP would move more units than her 2010 Pink Friday debut which has sold over 1.7 million copies.
"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)
