Despite industry analyst prediction ‘TROLLZ’ – the newest duet from 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj – will power its way to a #2 debut on next week’s Hot 100, the duo are pulling out all the stops to push it to the chart’s summit.
In addition to selling the single for $.69 and offering to pay fans to help promote it (click here to read more), now Minaj is keeping conversation around ‘TROLLZ’ going with the reveal of an alternate version.
Taking to Twitter Tuesday (June 16), the GRAMMY nominee explained the official version was actually her 11th take whereas the alternate has a different verse and even changes the beat.
“The official #Trollz verse was version 11. This was version 1,” said Nicki of the ‘TROLLZ’ alternate. “Verse changes and beat changes… but now u guys get a glimpse of where my verse begins vs. how it ends up once my creative process is complete.”

With the newly unveiled alternate version as well as the previously lifted clean version, lyric video, official video, and .69 sale, 6ix9ine and Minaj may have padded the single enough with streams and downloads to compensate for its poor response at radio (still a major component in Billboard Hot 100 placement).
Keep it locked to That Grape Juice once the official word drops about where the tune lands on the refreshed chart.
