Nicki Minaj Second Week Sales Falls To #3; Lionel Richie & Adele Take Top Spots
Nicki Minaj second weeks sales are not looking so hot right now. Roman Reloaded top the charts last week selling 253,000 units. In its second week out, Roman Reloaded, falls to the number three spot selling 76,598 units, which is 70% less than last week. Lionel Richie’s album, Tuskegee, which is a country remake of his best hits from the 80′s takes the #1 spot its third week out. Adele’s 21 rounds out the charts at number two, selling 90,837.
Before Nicki Minaj deleted her twitter account and turned on her Barbz, she and Adele were running neck and neck in the sales games. Nicki Minaj’s Roman Reloaaded was on target to sale 90,000 units, but ended the week not meeting those sales projections. I love an under-dog story, and though I am not a Nicki Minaj fan, I’m still rooting for her success! Obviously, it’s not over for the rapper/pop singer, one hit from Roman Reloaded could turn these numbers around in a week. A public apology to the Barbz and Kens (fans) on twitter wouldn’t hurt either…
