Nicki Minaj slams Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, and more after chart defeat

The two albums were neck and neck on traditional album sales with 78k each, while Astroworld had a lead of 28,000 on streaming equivalent album units with 125,000 versus Queen's 97,000.

Meanwhile, photos of VMA prep show that Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner are supposed to be seated right behind Nicki Minaj - which would probably make for some extremely awkward small talk. The "Chun-Li" rapper says she even looked into the album sales of others charting artists including Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Nas, and Kanye West noting how Scott did 200k in clothing sales, which were rolling before the release of the album.

During her latest interview she also cleared up rumours she's not living with Travis, revealing that they spend every night together and share their time between her house and the home they bought together. With no dates for a tour, etc. In fact, she claimed her album is actually #1 because Scott and Spotify screwed her over. While nobody know just what to do about the charts in 2018, at least some artists are asking these questions in the open. I said what I said.

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.

Minaj first sparked controversy after she mentioned the historic abolitionist in a tweet.

She claims that Spotify punished her for this decision by freezing promotion of her record.

"Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most. I'll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries", she wrote. "They took away my promotion", the hitmaker said.

Nicki Minaj isn't happy with Spotify at all. Ending the tweet with "I felt it was time", it sounds like Nicki is going to hit an avenue people have been yearning for her to visit.
