Nicki Minaj Reveals Why Target Is Not Selling Reissue

Nicki Minaj's The Re-Up reissue of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is not on sale in stores like Target and Walmart, shockingly. But the rapper revealed why when she sat down with Power 105.1 recently.
She said, "It's hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn't want to take a chance. So Target and Walmart [are] not selling the album. And Target is actually my biggest retailer. They've sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever; thank you Target, but I wish you could have sold this one … it kind of sets you up to fail."
It's shocking that the record is harder to find than it should be! True fans will grab it, though! And Minaj is not deterred by some of the big ticket retailers not taking in the reissue, diplomatically saying, "At the end of the day I’m happy that I was able to put the music out. The real reason for me to put out The Re-Up is because I wanted to have a bridge between this time and the third album. I wanted people to have music that I really stand by."
The reissue is dope, so Barbz should most definitely pick it up, at their favorite retailer where it's available or digitally.
