6ix9ine Insinuates Payola at Play in Chart Battle With Justin Bieber & Ariana Grande’s ‘Stuck With U’?

Published: Wednesday 13th May 2020 by Rashad

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.

    “…benefited from ‘single bundling’ that allowed purchasers of their tune ‘Say So’s vinyl edition to also receive a copy of its digital download.”

    The Charts are a scam now

      Chile it’s not even funny and these inflated as ego people really believe their up their with the GREATS that achieved those record breaks not only based on talent and quality but PURE SELLS alone. These fans claim to be real yet can’t put their money where their mouth is. I always viewed streaming nothing more but cheating because had this s*** happen in the 60s,70s,80s 90s and early 00s the greats would’ve had more than one or two discs of countless #1 hits

        Do u need so cheese with the whine?

    • C**-ila May 14, 2020

      Scooter is the scammer here…he needs to stop JB isn’t going to happen for that long now…Ariana is the real star under his wing.
      TBH i was disappointed when she joined him for a Charity single i’d rather hear her sing with Kelly Clarkson, Jhub or XTina.
      If they miss the #1 place they can blame JB :/

    I don’t like this muthfucka but he may be onto something here with this one ☕️

      on to what exactly ? these such claims have been going for decades and the topic of paying for spins is nothing new.
      fact is, great artist allow their work to speak for itself, regardless of chart placement.
      those insecure, hurt, doing it for the clout people will always scream and cry when they are not #1.
      this song he is crying about is actually horrible and damaging to the youth. This kid is dealing with some extremely dark demons.

    The ariana Grande justin bieber song is a charity single, so why is it discounted on iTunes?
    The song is being sold for 69 cents

    Why would u discount a charity single
    The goal of releasing a charity song is to make money for charity, so discounting the song defeats the purpose.

      Demi’s last 2 singles undersold, Biebs’ last album tanked, and anything Ariana touched after 7 Rings has underwhelmed. What better way to reset interest in your main milk cows than by pulling a Simon Cowell and subliminally having the public associate your roster’s discounted charity single with positive/ noble emotions while prepping them to whip out their wallets on future projects?

    No 💩 payola is a thing and is a rampant issue. That Havana girl wouldn’t ever be on the charts without payola. Say I’m lying. Stop posting about this shrimp d*ck

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

      All this mouth, but where is normani on the billboard hot 100, spotify and iTunes 100
      Watch, library silence

      They did payola for motivation but it still flopped hard

      • Nicky May 13, 2020

        Where are Camicky the Clown solo songs on the charts

        Where is the remix on the chart

        How’s that cancelled concert doing ?

        Did her opening acts find another gig?

        MOM takes another tumble despite remix 😂. DaBaby did his charity work for 2020

        Normani is recording an album and one of the hottest pop girls Dua, wants to release their collab.


      • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

        Megan thee stallion gas no album out but she’s on the charts
        Megan thee stallion even has record label issues but she’s number 2 right now on the chart.


      • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

        RCA records have thrown that flop bìtch away.
        They are focusing on doja, a real star.

        u cant make this shìt up.

      • Nicky May 13, 2020


        Essay where?

        It was a list of questions 😂

        Take your L like a Man.

        Camicky has been losing for quite some time. She knows she’s not a star.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

        U didnt still answer my question

        Girl where is normani on the billboard hot 100, spotify and iTunes 100 charts


      • Ask4yall May 14, 2020

        Exactly. They are all desperate for number ones. Keep on hating

  6. Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

    This is what happened to Arianna when she collaborated with that beyonce impersonator

    Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100: #4(new) Bad to You, @ArianaGrande, @Normani & @NICKIMINAJ.

    It’s so funny to me

  7. Rashad May 13, 2020

    Stuck With U has been number 1 on iTunes since it debuted. On top of that streaming and radio. Justin and Ariana are both major pop stars with numbers 1s to their name. Tekashi needs to STFU. He’s relying on streaming from white frat boys with zero taste

    • PinotNoir May 13, 2020

      But if his success is due, be it.

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

      It’s a charity single, released to make money for charity, so why is it discounted on itunes

      Stop playing dumb

      Scooter braun is also a credited songwriter on this song

  8. High Price May 13, 2020

    He’s already fearing he won’t go number 1? 😆🤔 Hmmmmm. … What a time to be on the charts…. this is getting good….

  9. Dc May 13, 2020

    He needs to be stopped ASAP

    I believe 6ix9ine. Almost every artist in the music industry uses payola. It’s been like this since 5th last century
