Nicki Minaj believes her sophomore album is â€śgoing to do its thangâ€ť.
The hip-hop artist has released her second studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, following her success of her first record Pink Album. Nicki thinks her new LP will be a hit as she prepares to showcase the songs with a UK tour in June.
â€śThis album is gonna sell so much more than Pink Friday,â€ť she told radio station Power 105.1.
â€śAsk me this question two years from today. Clue. With me, Iâ€™m never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. Iâ€™ma travel, Iâ€™ma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz [fans] everywhere, and this is my first time Iâ€™m gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thang.â€ť
Nicki has collaborated with a number of producers for the album including Nas, Hit-Boy, Dr Luke, Ester Dean, Rico Beats, Drake, Young Jeezy, Chris Brown, Bobby V and Beenie Man. She was surprised Nas agreed to work with her on the song Champion.
â€śI didnâ€™t think I could get Nas, just to be honest,â€ť she said. â€śHeâ€™s always been so exclusive. He doesnâ€™t work with everybody and I respect people that are like that. They take pride in their craft.â€ť
Her favourite tracks to record were the silly dance tunes. The songs made her laugh so much she had to keep rerecording.
â€śI had a blast recording a lot of my dance songs, Pound the Alarm and Starships. Those were a lot of fun,â€ť she said.
