Nicki Minaj knows exactly where to place the blame for the less-than-stellar sales of her album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up."

When asked in an interview with Power 105.1 if it was hard to purchase "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up," Minaj responded, "It is 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 is not selling the album. Target is actually my biggest retailer -- they've always been my biggest retailer. They've sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever, so, thank you, Target. But I wish you could've sold this one."

Minaj continued, "Best Buy only took limited because they're like 'Oh no, we want to play it safe,' so it's very difficult and it kind of sets you up to fail."

The singer's second album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," debuted at number one on Billboard with 253,000 copies sold in the album's first week.

The re-release, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up" hit stores on Nov. 19.

"At the end of the day, I was happy I was able to put the music out," Minaj said.
