Nicki Minaj‘s fans are furious and ASAP Ferg is their firing line.
Full story below…
Onika recently teamed with the rapper, guesting on his new single ‘Move Ya Hips.’
Following its July 30 release, Minaj’s Barbz mobilized in their thousands so as to help the track make a splash on the Billboard Hot 100.
Fuelled by colossal sales from Ferg’s web-store, chart analysts had ‘Hips’ on-course to open within the top 5 of the tally (with estimated sales of 80k). This would have seen the song serve as Ferg’s first top 10.
However, when the final numbers were tallied, only 37k were counted. As such, ‘Hips’ missed the top 10 entirely. Instead, it charted at #19.
Unconfirmed reports suggest the reason is due to Ferg’s team not submitting the web sales data to the relevant parties. We must stress that this is not confirmed.
Still, it was enough to send the Barbz into a heated frenzy.
Angry tweets were hashtagged with #ASAPFergIsOverParty, which is trending as at writing.
Here are just a few:
