(2009)

Doll Domination – The Mini Collection is the first and only extended play (EP) by American girl group The Pussycat Dolls, released on May 24, 2009 by Interscope Records. The EP was released as a reissue of their second studio album Doll Domination (2008), with three newly-recorded songs/remixes.

Critical reception[edit]

Nick Levine saw the release "a little strange" suggesting "after scoring their biggest hit of the Doll Domination era with 'Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)', [...] the next move seemed obvious.[1] Tack the Slumdog-sampling smash onto the end of the original album, add a couple more new tunes and call it a 'Deluxe Edition'." Levine went on to praise the label's decision to assemble a six track mini album "without the padding that bogged down the original." He awarded The Mini Collection four out of five stars.[1]

Commercial performance[edit]

Commercially The Mini Collection fared well. In the United Kingdom, it debuted at number 9 on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 13,676.[2] As of June 2009, The Mini Collection had sold over 70,000 copies[3] and was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for shipments of 60,000 units.[4]
