Tekashi 6ix9ine amassed his fair share of enemies while behind bars (a feat that’s earned him quite the reputation for “snitching”), but since his unexpected release it doesn’t look like he’s on the road to gaining many friends on this side of lockdown.
First beefing with Meek Mill and later Drake (as we reported here), now the 24-year-old has his sights set on Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande as the Scooter Braun-managed duo could potentially best him for next week’s #1 spot on the Hot 100.
As the race tightens between his song, ‘GOOBA,’ and their charity duet, ‘Stuck With U,’ 6ix9ine took to Instagram moments ago to issue a warning to Billboard:
The caption reads:
“@billboard We’re watching this very closely. The world is watching very closely, we love you and always supported the charting. On every platform we are dominating by a LANDSLIDE. The numbers are there and to be looked at. WITH NO RADIO WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREAMS. I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early Im just making it clear that the world is watching…”
The message above came just two days after Billboard confirmed the current chart champions – Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj – benefited from ‘single bundling’ that allowed purchasers of their tune ‘Say So’s vinyl edition to also receive a copy of its digital download.
As of time reported, it has not been confirmed if ‘Stuck With U’ will benefit from any padding in its race to #1. Billboard have yet to respond to 6ix9ine’s comment.
