Biography

Any encounter with Nicki Minaj will arouse a heightened sense that there is more to her than meets the eye and inspire the desire to experience this modern day "Wonder Woman" Nicki Minaj - the name alone appeals to the decadence within us all. Whoever thinks that you can't "have your cake and eat it too" has obviously not met Nicki. The surname Minaj is the metaphor ... Read more in Amazon's Nicki Minaj Store

Product Description

Product Description

Despite the similarity in title to its predecessor, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is in fact an album of entirely new material from the hottest female hip-hop and RnB star to emerge for many years. The album includes the club and chart hit "Starships", along with "Roman Holiday".

Having signed with Young Money, Nicki Minaj rose to prominence through collaborations with the likes of Rihanna and Mariah Carey, and then her own tracks from debut album Pink Friday, including "Your Love", "Check it Out" (featuring will.i.am) and "Moment For Life" (featuring Drake).

This deluxe edition includes a selection of bonus tracks.

BBC Review

All eyes are on Nicki Minaj, and not just on a superficial level. The runaway commercial success of debut album Pink Friday, combined with the New York Times recently labelling her "the most influential female rapper of all time", means her second studio set Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has some serious scrutiny to face.

Early chatter suggested it was a concept album performed entirely in the guise of Minaj’s gay male alter-ego, Roman Zolanski. And while there’s a definite thread furthering Roman’s narrative, it’s by no means at the forefront – evidently, it’s hard to camouflage a personality as immense and as deafening as Minaj’s.

There’s a sense of flagrant abandon in almost every note of PF: RR. Major-key, tap-along pop sensibilities; disquieting lyrical content; wide-eyed, over-pronounced Valley Girl patter; a reworking of O Come All Ye Faithful; shuddering, skeletal beats. And that’s just the opening track. The album unfolds an immeasurable amalgam of genres and inspirations, all fused together in a diamond-encrusted bubble of futuristic, day-glo hip hop. The energy is palpable, the pace rarely lets up, and personality pervades throughout.

At a heady 19 tracks (all complete efforts, without a clichéd hip hop interlude in sight), a handful of songs do get mislaid along the way – Right by My Side would have drowned amongst its noisier neighbours were it not for the attachment of Chris Brown, while the sluggish Sex in the Lounge barely registers at all.

It’s not a question of volume, though, as many of the other serene numbers stand tall: Young Forever and Marilyn Monroe display the same tender vulnerabilities of breakthrough anthem Your Love, a necessary and successful respite in an album so boastful. But it’s a knowing, tongue-in-cheek boastfulness – one that it’s impossible to begrudge Minaj in light of her accomplishments. And in spite of the overt use of humour – often crude, often puerile, but continually effective – you’re always left with the impression Minaj takes what she does very seriously.

Few artists in Minaj’s position would dare to take risks as bold as this, and yet, it doesn’t feel as though she even sees it as risky – she’s breezily doing her thing, and the weight of whichever labels are bestowed upon her is irrelevant. Whatever the supposed role of Nicki Minaj within the hip hop hierarchy, whatever box she’s pushed into, she’ll have a hard time fitting in. Because, above all else, PF: RR cements her as a truly unique entity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Am I too old for this? 3 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first clicked on Pink Friday, I felt as if I was doing something which I was disqualified from, due to my age. It seemed to me that I was poking my nose into a club of which I could never hope any longer to be a welcome member. At 62 (as was), I should have been settling down gracefully with Beatles and Stones repackages, and reunion tours of bands which had expired 30 years ago. Yet it never felt that way for me: music has played such a vital and constantly rejuvenating role in my life, and I've never ceased to be amazed by the way in which the music we generally know as rock can constantly reinvent itself in ways which not even the most radical 60s pioneers (Beatles, Zappa, Dylan, Wilson, Spector, Bowie, etc.) could ever have dreamed of.
The music which has soundtracked my life has been as varied and chameleonic as I never would have expected. Having started at 13 with Frank Ifield (...no, why should that embarrass me?!!) and The Tornados, inspiration and excitement has come to me from acts as diverse as Alan Price, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Beach Boys, Love, The Doors, Yes, Genesis, Tangerine Dream, Pat Metheny, Donna Summer, Van der Graaf Generator, Steve Reich, Renaissance, Lush, and many, many others, to give me a wonderful collection of around 9000 records, none of which I regret buying (OK, some were a bit tragic, but they still represent moments in time, and I'd never part with a single one). You'd think by now I'd have heard everything I could ever wish to hear, and had lost my capacity to be impressed.
Prior to Ms Minaj, I had already bought stuff by Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown, so I was familiar with the rap oeuvre. But when I heard about Nicki, and decided to check her out on YouTube, I was absolutely blown away.

Underrated album. A lot of people judge her because they think she went commercial, but in my opinion she's invented a whole new genre. To buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded [VINYL] 7 April 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
“Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” is Nicki’s Minaj second record. A totally new record, although the title starts with the same name that her debut album “Pink Friday”.
“Roman Reloaded” it’s a kind of the continue of “Pink Friday”, packed with 16 powerful songs.
