RAPPER Nicki Minaj (pictured) has had much success on the pop charts with songs such as Starships and Super Bass, and she says the re-release of her sophomore album will be nostalgic for her early fans.

"The feel of the re-release is kind of like my first sound, like the mixtapes," she says of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up.

The re-release comes seven months after PinkFriday: Roman Reloaded debuted at No1 on the charts.

It features pop, dance, R&B, reggae and rap sounds. It's a far stretch from when Minaj kicked off her career as a sexed-up street rapper, signed by Lil Wayne in 2009 after she released three buzzed-about mixtapes.

Her official debut Pink Friday went near double platinum and was nominated for a Grammy Award.
