Nicki Minaj is speaking out after debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 as of Sunday (August 19) with her newest album, Queen, just below Travis Scott‘s Astroworld.
Nicki is furious because she believed she would soar to the top of the Billboard Chart with her new album, "Queen" ... but Travis captured the #1 spot with his album, "Astroworld," which came out 2 weeks ago. She came in at #2 this week.
Nicki believes Travis cheated because he's using his baby and baby mama to fuel interest in his album. Specifically, Nicki went ham over Kylie's post 3 days ago where she plastered Travis' tour art with the caption, "me and storm ready for tour. shop.travisscott.com."
Nicki claims Travis sold more than 50,000 units off Kylie's post ... spiking his overall album sales.
Nicki then tweeted, "He knows he doesn't have the number 1 album this week." Nicki went on to grouse, "I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing."
“My first album sold 400K. No one is doing that with debut albums now. So I’m so grateful. I lost out on 12 hours of sales and did 200K in one week after I was supposedly cancelled. I bit my tongue last #QueenRadio but I won’t On Tuesday. I love you guys so much.”
“I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc recently did. Travis sold 200K in his first week of clothes alone. I spoke to him last night & he said he’s been selling clothes b4 the music. Billboard says they’ll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!” she added.
“I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jennerpost a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”
She also went in on Spotify: “Spotify put drake’s face on every playlist but told me they’d have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio. Even tho they’ve been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time,” she wrote.
Nicki also called out her label, Republic Records: “My label didn’t want to defend me for fear of Spotify trying to teach Ariana a “lesson” too!”
