This week, Nicki Minaj’s new album Queen debuted at No. 2 on the charts, following Travis Scott’s Astroworld at No. 1. She took to Twitter to accuse Travis of altering his numbers through ticket bundles, and accused the streaming platform of treating her unfairly.
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 her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
But Spotify issued a statement responding to Nicki’s Twitter rant, and it says:
Spotify supported Nicki Minaj with a Times Square billboard, a host of the largest playlists, New Music Friday and the new music release shelf,” the rep said. “Her song ‘Bed’ actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign. The company continues to be big fans of Nicki.
We have yet to hear what came next. Who do you think has the ball in their court?
