Travis sold over 50K of these,” Nicki wrote with a screenshot of Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram, which linked to the Travis shop to buy bundles for his upcoming tour.

“With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries ♥️,”

“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 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.”

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!”

    I remember when she wasn’t nominated for best video. She said it’s all about racism yet only 2 out of 5 nominated artists were white. And now this… lol cray cray

    Nicki is acting childish over her album debuting at #2 Faith Hill’s self titled 1998 album Faith did the same thing on the Country Album Charts selling 7,000 more physical copies than Nicki’s did more than two decades later and eventually shipped in excess of 6 million copies reaching 6 x platinum

    LOL – excuses excuses excuses!! People didn’t buy it because people don’t like her or her new music. Period.

  • Amie

    That’s what she gets for ranting about her sales.LET IT GO NICKI IS A FLOPPED BYE NICKI

    If someone cheated to be number you will also be angry and called them out on it. That’s cheating you out of your awards and money. Who don’t want their album to be number 1 you work so hard on it so everyone needs to shut up and stop talking crap on her because she did what many others wish they had balls to do it. Naw all y’all other punk asses would just talk the shit and do nothing about it!

  • Gina

    The ego on this bitch.

    When she came out she would go after Lil Kim calling her a has been and what not even though she paved the way for her.Now there’s a new girl on top and I guess she’s feeling it. I just don’t get why the females rappers have to knock each other down.

    This woman is spreading soo much negativity… she has been trashing everyone since came out of hiding… if your album is good, no need to trash others to get attention. I remember her old songs, and new one not a single one standout. Even if travis Scott’ partner promoted his album there is nothing wrong with it. Any decent partner would do the same. Stoping blaming other woman for your bad sales. Ariana Grande is way younger and Class Act, releasing her album with respect, performing, making appearances and no trash talking. She tried to sabotage her release by moving forward her release close to her. if numbers doesn’t matter to you then stop complaining about it. Its good Travis is not white otherwise she would have played the race card like every time. Time to take out the plastic from your body and soul.

    That’s what she get’s , for being bestie’s with Kim k.. and doing anything for a karjenner. They’re always using someone else’s talent to line their pockets. .

    Sounds like sour grapes to me…

    when you call yourself a Queen then you aren’t. she is still starting out she shouldn’t expect much more than what she’ll get or she’ll think someone took something from her
