Even though Minaj debuted high on the charts, was she hit with the sophomore jinx?  Her debuted album, Pink Friday debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 375,000 copies, which was almost 125,000 copies more.

In a recent interview with New York’s DJ, DJ Clue Minaj was asked¬†whether she believes in the sophomore jinx:¬†‚ÄúHell no! This album is gonna sell so much more than¬†Pink Friday. Ask me this question two¬†years¬†from today, Clue. With me, I‚Äôm never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. I‚Äôma travel, I‚Äôma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz everywhere, and this is my first time I‚Äôm gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thang.‚ÄĚ
