Nicki Minajhas defended the low sales of her new album Young Money star was asked about the record's sales, to which she replied: "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."
She added: "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."
