Unbeknownst to Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift, some members of their respective fan bases have hatched a plan to block Cardi B from rocketing to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
Their motives? To keep Taylor at the top with her new single ‘Look’ and to rain on the parade of Minaj critics who hope a #1 for Cardi will finish Minaj once..and for all.
Full story below…
Swifties and Barbz , don’t let Cardi B break the record.We’re gonna save Taylor and Nicki. If she wants to get no #1 Nicki must get it first https://t.co/2AVOUbNuGZ

The weird and worrying plan isn’t endorsed by Swift or Minaj and has been slammed by the sane amongst their fan bases.
You’re corny if you steaming LWYMMD to block Cardi just because don’t want her to get #1 before Nicki. They don’t have beef weirdos

We understand why Minaj’s fans are eager for her to bag a #1 single. However, as anyone who follows the rapper’s singles know, her material often outsells songs which enjoy high peak positions but fail to last once their hype dissolves.
Put simply, what Nicki singles lack in chart positions they make up for in commercial stamina…globally.
With this in mind, we’re hoping that the enemies of progress who are taking part in this tomfoolery will think twice before blocking the gifted and endearing Cardi from realising her dream.
