Her latest effort, Queen, debuted at number two on the Billboard charts this week, selling 185,000 equivalent units. Travis Scott’s album, Astroworld, remained at the top spot for a second week in a row, selling 205,000.
Nicki is furious about this, and has blamed not only Travis but his baby momma Kylie Jenner and their daughter Stormi in the process.
The “Super Bass” rapper believes he cheated because he’s using both Kylie & Stormi to fuel interest in his album. She flipped out over Kylie’s post from a couple of days ago where she plastered Travis’ tour art with the caption “me and storm ready to tour. shop. travissscott.com.’
“Travis sold over 50K of these,” she tweeted. “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”.
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.
