Good thing Nicki pushed her album back to April. She had no shot against Adele
That's true. But remember she released Pink Friday the same week as Kanye released his album, and she also had no shot against him.
But Pink Friday climbed back to #1 many months later after she released Moment 4 Life as a single. So she could always have another chance at #1 if she has a good album-selling single like Moment 4 Life on this album too.
