Nicki Minaj Rejects Travis Scott’s Billboard Numbers / Declares Herself #1 In America With ‘Queen’

Published: Sunday 19th Aug 2018 by Sam

Nicki Minaj has long marched to the beat of her own drum and she’s doing so today – in a major way.

As just reported, the rapper lost out on the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 after Travis Scott triumphed for a second week with ‘Astroworld.’

Well, while Onika quite requesting a recount – she has declared herself the true victor.

Find out why below…

Per our prior report, both acts drew on “unique” measures to secure the coveted #1 position.

Indeed, they each aimed to one-up each other with “unique” merchandise, tour, and streaming bundles that became increasingly tricky to track.

Now, Nicki is stressing that Travis’ tactics render his “win” invalid. She just tweeted:

Update: She just added the following:

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 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!

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. broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.

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 . Even tho they’ve been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time.

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. Oh I can’t wait for on Tuesday. They took away my promotion they had promised for the 1st cpl days b/c of this.

My music went up on Apple so I played it. I assumed it was on Spotify & Tidal at the same time. Spotify said that Apple tweeted fans advising was up & therefore they had to teach me a lesson. But PRAISE BE TO GOD!!!!!!

My label didn’t want to defend me for fear of Spotify trying to teach Ariana a “lesson” too!

Do you know how many women get systematically blackballed out of their positions in an office building & can’t fight back?????

Valid point or poor sportsmanship?

    Sore loser…

    • Fancy BISH August 19, 2018

      Exactly! When Nicki released Barbie Bin and Done Li so close to when Cardi released her debut album, I knew her stank asss was gonna get her KARMA! And Travis delivered it to her! I’m so happy for Kylie’s baby daddy lol ? MJ said, “BEAT IT” and Miss Celie said, “BEAT HER.” ???

      • Yolanda August 19, 2018

        Nicki is crowning her album #1, just like she crowned herself Queen of Rap. But Cardi didn’t have presales, bundled tours/merchandise or nothing. EXPLAIN THAT NICKI!!! Nicki cares less about being #2. She’s pissed that she didn’t sell as much as Cardi.

    • Rasputia Latimore August 19, 2018

      WTF cares about #1 when the album is going to slip and fall off the charts like high heels walking on greese (ie real fast). Charts don’t make an artist or celebrity. Nicki is a big star and it is time she either acts like a big star or move on to the aunti phase. Big stars don’t sweat over the charts because they have nothing to prove and big stars get their tour money. I know Nicki is likely under a 360 deal but it is her own fault for taking long breaks between albums instead of hurrying up and finishing her 360 deal to become an independent artist.

    • Bencelo August 19, 2018

      MTE. Nicki flopped but now her meltdown is making it even a bigger flop LMAO. The clown came back to bite. Music publications are finally panning her p*** collab.

  2. Just Here for the comments August 19, 2018

    Poor sportsmanship in every way

  3. emmaa.wink August 19, 2018

    I make $82h while I’m setting out to the most cleared corners of the planet. Seven days sooner I worked by my PC in Rome, Monti Carlo at long last Paris… This week I’m back in the USA. All that I do are clear errands from this one cool site.GOOD LUCK .

  4. whhhewchil123 August 19, 2018

    just sad nicki u let the whole world see u sweat…beyonce would never she needs to take a break re-brand and go and find something menaningful in life outside of this music stuff its destroying her.

    • A&R August 19, 2018

      Whoa. Simple yet deep. It does seems as if this is all she has going for her and that could cause one to become obsessed. Even if this is true, her got JT out her way to speak on this is mind blowing and brand damaging. I’m kinda of floored. Who has the time to do this… and if you do, be a good business women and let your PR release an official statement on your behalf. This is crazy! Wow!

      • Molly August 19, 2018

        Right……. she should get a man and some babies, she clearly lonely

  5. Olusheyi August 19, 2018

    Just accept that you made #2 Nicki. At least you made #2. Just accept it and move on

    • Yolanda August 19, 2018

      She wasn’t upset when she made #2 with Pinkprint. Cardi got her popping dem pills hard!!

  6. SNF August 19, 2018

    This is pathetic… Smh

  7. JENNY August 19, 2018

    hahahahaha this is sooooo corny!

    Queens don’t act this way!

  8. Tweet August 19, 2018

    I can’t believe she’s really going out sad like this. It was all so predictable, but still surprising to see unfold. She’s really getting on Twitter and blaming Kylie…this is indefensible. This broad really petitioned Billboard to change the rules after all the b******* she pulled. Nicki you were selling $5 Queen pins + free digital album. A MESS!

    • Yolanda August 19, 2018

      Why does Nicki have to snitch or bring other people in to prove her point. Geez. She snitched on Tyga just to make a point about Safaree hairline. She’s so freaking immature. Her parents raised “messed up” children. Why didn’t her father accompany her mother during that interview? Secrets and shames.

  9. MusicFan103 August 19, 2018

    All I know is no true QUEEN would represent or handle herself like this publicly.

    Looks so bad.

    She keeps talking about this and it then becomes a news story.

    When Britney Spears ‘Blackout’ I believe it was, was denied the top spot because The Eagles had a Walmart only release qualify for the Top spot on the Billboard 200, did we see Britney tweet up a storm. Nope.

    Her doing this, is just showing Cardi keeps winning, without doing sh!t. And I say this as a fan of both.

    A mess!

    • Erica August 19, 2018

      Exactly Britney album was supposed to be #1 but they change the rule & she didn’t swear it, Nicki is a sore loser

      • Yolanda August 19, 2018

        But she didn’t explain 2+ months of presales though.

      • Juz_saying August 19, 2018

        Well, probably because Britney already had # 1’s

    • Caleb August 20, 2018

      I think Britney had a lot more things on her mind than her music career at the time. I don’t even know if she realized she had an album out in 2007 she was so mentally gone. So glad she was able to turn it all back around in 2008.

  10. DC August 19, 2018

    This is what delusional is what about her cheating numbers adding FEFE that’s cheating right lol

  11. Kendrick Slaymar August 19, 2018

    She has no sense of self worth. Her whole self worth is caught up in this Minaj persona and numbers. It’s why she raps about son’ing other females 24/7. Her valediction comes from outside and not inside.

    I feel sad for her now because she literally seems to be coming unhinged in social media . Like her or not the woman has a ton of fans and tons of success and does not have to do all of this. It’s cringey.

  12. SMH August 19, 2018

    What a loser lol

  13. Ready August 19, 2018

    She said what’s she m/effing said! Queen the real number 1 album

    • Caleb August 20, 2018

      Only it isn’t.

  14. truthtea August 19, 2018

    And this is precisely why Nicki won’t last much longer! If you’re just in it for the numbers, you will flop hard!

  15. Erica August 19, 2018

    This h o e is looney toons

    • Gappp The scene August 19, 2018


  16. Adele August 19, 2018

    She sucks! She didn’t have those 12 hours because she finished the album 3 hours before she was on Queen Radio. That’s her fault for not having her body or work ready AND releasing it early. She pulled some stunts to get her a #1 too and she didn’t and she’s mad it didn’t work. This is exactly why people don’t like her. She’s such a sore loser and so stank.

    • SNF August 19, 2018

      “so stank” ???

    • Rasputia Latimore August 19, 2018

      I agree 200 percent.

  17. Yolanda August 19, 2018

    Didn’t Pink Friday debut at #2 with $375K EIGHT YEARS AGO? She can’t just give it an extra 25K. What does she mean nobody is doing #400K in this day and age. B**** THAT WAS EIGHT YEARS AGO!!!! When did 2010 become today? Take that half of a pill and chill.

    • SdotB August 19, 2018

      She said no one is doing 400k this day n age the week after Travis Scott did 500K lol…

      and still beat her the 2nd week…

    • Caleb August 20, 2018

      And also “time Machine b****** always talking bout the old days, when they was not when they was touring with the O’Jays.”

      LMAO ? She can perform at Bingo night!

  22. EH August 19, 2018

    This is such a bad look. Who is advising her? Even if this was true the general public doesn’t give a f*** about numbers and charts NOR understands the politics of it. Th e akademiks of the web got her so triggered. She’s letting folks online troll her about coming in at #2 instead of celebrating the fans who f*** with the album and getting ready for her tour. Since when in 2018 is 190k a flop?!

    • Yolanda August 19, 2018

      $190K is a flop when she’s #2 against another female rapper, CARDI!

    • Rasputia Latimore August 19, 2018

      Nobody called it a flop yet even though it is. She about to fall hard second week because her album lacks Safaree’s songwriting skills.

  23. Yolanda August 19, 2018

    Why didn’t she look at the numbers Cardi recently did? HAHAHAHAHA

  24. DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? August 19, 2018

    But shouldnt Travis Scott get credit for having the highest PURE SALES debut over DRAKE this year? AstroWorld sold around 100k more than Scorpian first wk in pure sales smh

    Again Rip Nikki ? 2009-2018

  25. EH August 19, 2018

    This is actually insane.

    To think that someone would put so much stock into chart numbers; that not getting #1 hurts her so much to do a Twitter rant and make accusations like this.

    I usually stay out of these posts and I enjoyed Queen, but Nicki it’s time to leave the industry; before you completely lose it.

  26. Molly August 19, 2018

    Back from a visit on her twitter acc and I have to say Ms Swift with the good gowns, the beautiful gowns has nothing on this stupid h** when it comes to playing victim

  27. Norbert Peti August 19, 2018

    She’s tweeting “Trump tweets” lol

  28. Rita August 19, 2018

    By claiming the sales are due to kylie and stormi, she’s basically saying she thinks kylies name holds more promotional value than hers does.

    ….Does anyone else also notice that in conjunction with that, she’s also been trying to hijack fans off of these young white women? She was shoulder to shoulder with her at coachella and posting her on her snap. I recall she was the one doing the filming. She’s also trying to use her association with ariana to now validate herself, since her fanbase and platforms are bigger.

    • Annoyed August 19, 2018

      That’s because Kylie does have more promotional value than Nicki. And I agree, Ariana’s star is definitely rising while Nicki’s star is falling so she is trying to latch on to her association with Ari so she can siphon off her fan base. Some type of ‘Ariana likes me so you guys should like me too’ mindset.

      • Caleb August 20, 2018

        I’m really afraid she’s going to turn on Ariana at some point.

  29. Gappp The scene August 19, 2018

    Embarrasng Queen. she should have called her album Jester, coz she acting like a clown #GapTheScene

  30. KB August 19, 2018

    I love Nicki but she’s acting VERY thirsty, pressed and childish this era. She should not have titled this album queen without a bonafied hit. You can’t call yourself a queen and run around here like a court jester. She’s focused on everyone else when she should’ve focused on putting out a great body of work and a HIT. Chun-li was garbage…Bed should’ve been a hit but the video was garbage and late asf…Ganja Burns is not single worthy…Dreams is only hot because of the sample…Barbie Tingz was a definite NO. Girl Bye! Put Queen behind you and move on, it’s not happening. You spent 4 years to return and this is what you come back with?! Too lit too lit should’ve been a full song. Bye Onika. BYE. Until I get Black Barbie or Bedrock Nicki I’m over her and I am a FAN. But not with the shits.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? August 19, 2018

      The top 7 best songs on Queen can only compete with the Bottom 3 Weakest tracks on Invasion which are RING, BEST LIFE, AND SHE BAD ?. That shows just how much better cardI is.

      • KB August 19, 2018

        I’m not going to compare bc Cardi did not write one song on her album. But IOP is a banger I must say and farrrrr better than QUEEN of complaining.

      • Bianca August 19, 2018

        ring and best life are bangers. she actually talking bout haters and what her life was like before the fame.

      • Caleb August 20, 2018

        The weakest song on IOP is Bartler Cardi. I still can’t understand why ppl f*** with that song.

  31. xedos August 19, 2018

    Niki is like Trump. its always has to be about them. she’s the most miserable biatch in the business

  32. Annoyed August 19, 2018

    Wow, I’m not a fan nor am I a “hater” of Nicki. I’m more of a casual indifferent observer of many of these popular artist, but this woman is just becoming a nuisance right about now. She wants to be seen as the Queen but she is trying so hard to prove it rather than letting things fall into place organically that will speak for her. This behavior will continue to push potential fans away. It’s embarrassing at this point, and I’ve tried to sympathize with her but I dont see any other female artist who had been around for 10+ years constantly taking to social media to defend their accomplishments like Nicki does.

  33. Blanco August 19, 2018

      • KB August 20, 2018

        Issa lost cause. Nicki fell back and these delusional/lame/unemployed/freeassgiving fans that troll in these posts FOR FREE should do the same. Mannnnn she’s postponing the tour bc she FLOPPED. Numbers DO matter and EVERY artist wants to debut at #1! Instead of downing folk for their opinions maybe you should go cop 10 copies of Queen of what? and stream it while you sleep.

        Maybe next time Onika.

    Sounds like she’s babbling a bunch of excuses that no one wants to hear. What’s done is done, at the end of the day she didn’t make #1 and that all anyone will take from it.

    She lost me on this one. She need to humble herself and be grateful that she’s is still relevant in today’s music climate. And if we’re gonna get real, QUEEN wasn’t as polished as Pink Print.

  44. Mark111 August 19, 2018

    Delusional Queen. ?

  45. Kai2dasuan August 19, 2018

    Barbz are really complaining that Cardi song was co-written clearly you guys needs to look at the songwriting credit and you will see that Cardi is listed on all the songs. Since you all want to guess you check the iTunes and tidal. Stop the hate train on Cardi because she is outdoing somebody that calls herself a Queen but is complaining about album sales and chart position on the charts..

    • Adele August 20, 2018

      All the songs on Queen multiple people outside of Nicki with writing credits as well.

  46. Jimbobgivafuck August 19, 2018

    And tell me that you coming back that you just took a break
    Maybe I blamed you for everything that was my mistake
    In hindsight I loved your rawness and I loved your edge
    ‘Cause it was you who talked me down from jumpin’ off the ledge
    Your earrings bamboo, your long nails too
    Your B.M.W. every time you came through
    You was the braveheart
    You stole Wayne heart
    You never switched it up
    You played the same part
    But I needed to grow
    And I needed to know
    That there were some things inside of me that I need to show
    So I just deaded you
    Left you in all black
    But dear old Nicki
    Please call back


  47. Aj August 20, 2018

    Poor sportsmanship. She tried every trick under the book including a music video for Ganja Burn and adding Fefe to the tracklist midweek.

    Truth is its actually a decent album, very cohesive and befitting of one of the hottest female MCs around. The issue is she built her fan base on bubblegum pop and pop-rap. They aren’t here for the straight up urban Nicki. Also the album is bloated – it’s about 5 tracks too long and she ruined its rollout with the billion tracks released before the album

  48. Sandra August 20, 2018

    Doesn’t she get tired. Even for me this last week was exhausting, I don’t think I can do another.

    She’s throwing tantrums in every interview except for one, and that’s probably because she hadnt popped her perks yet. Nikki hyped her ablum up for soo long now she cant take it because Cardi beat her numbers out and actually broke records that Nikki could not break in a 10 year career. Listen to Ganga Burn Closely, she said she came back to bury the Bardi, SIKE, didn’t work , now her ass sore. Should have named the her ablum”DRAMA QUEEN”

  53. Caleb August 20, 2018

    She is beyond embarrassing at this point. She had tour bundles and added the highly-streamed 6ixe9ine song FeFe to her album midweek which greatly inflated her streaming numbers to 185,000. So she has no leg to stand on. She thinks Travis owed her the #1 spot it appears. It’s really tragic to see her tarnishing her legacy with her attacking all her peers in the entertainment industry.

  54. DanYiel Iman August 20, 2018

    Charts state otherwise!! Nicki Minaj wants to be #1 but her fan base is CHEAP!! ?”Bzzz”?
