Hysterical Reactions To Nicki Minaj’s Seeming Beef With Baby Stormi

Hysterical Reactions To Nicki Minaj’s Seeming Beef With Baby Stormi

The trouble began when Travis Scott nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart with his album "Astroworld". Over the weekend, she went on a Twitter rampage over her first-week sales and dragged Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner and their child Stormi into it.

Nicki believes Travis cheated because he's using his baby and baby mama to fuel interest in his album.

The 35-year-old rapper unveiled her anticipated fourth album, Queen, last week but was left seething when it was pipped to the post in the Billboard 200 charts by Travis' Astroworld album, which, according to editors at NME, sold 205,000 copies in its second week of release compared to Queen's 185,000.

Yep: that's Nicki Minaj claiming she had the real No.1 album in America, despite officially having the No.2 album in America. I spoke to him.

On the other hand, many artists, including Minaj herself, have offered their fans merchandise/album and ticket/album packages, one of the many complicated metrics Billboard and other outlets must figure out how to weigh when calculating album sales.

Why, Onika Why? Was the general response on the Twitterverse after global rapper superstar Nicki Minaj had a Twitter meltdown on Sunday following the official announcement that "Queen" will bow in at number 2 on the Billboard 200 charts this week.

She argued: "Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lessons for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio".

She also noted Kylie Jenner's influence in boosting Travis' numbers. TMZ reports that reason is not because there might be a potential confrontation but because he has the number 1 album in the country and deserves to be seated in front of her. "Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans (sic)".

Nicki meltdown comes after the rapper's new album "Queen" didn't reach its expected first-week sales targets. He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week.

Minaj also took issue with Spotify, which she said failed to promote her album due to her relationship with Apple Music. Her song "Bed" actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign.
