After an already successful year with bangers like “Anaconda” and “Bang Bang,” Nicki Minaj is keeping the momentum going with the release of her much-anticipated album “The Pinkprint.” According to Billboard, Minaj’s third studio album is expected to sell more than 150,000 copies by December 21st , which only accounts for the first week of sales alone. I’m sure the Barbz and Nicki herself are full of unfiltered joy.
R&B crooner D’Angelo’s third album “Black Messiah,” which happens to be the first album he’s released in more than a decade, is also projected to see big numbers in its first week sales. Billboard anticipates the overdue album to hit and surpass the 100k mark with ease. Kyle Fowle of The A.V. Club proudly labeled the album “devastatingly great.”
With both new albums, the final numbers will be revealed on Christmas Eve when the new Billboard 200 chart comes out.
