Well this is awkward!
Nicki Minaj isn’t too pleased that fellow rapper Travis Scott landed the no. 1 album of the week the same week her album, Queen, was released.
On Sunday, the 35-year-old ten-time GRAMMY nominee took to Twitter to air her grievances against Scott and the promotion of his new album Astroworld.
Posting a screenshot of Kylie Jenner’s post about Astroworld, Minaj tweeted, “Travis sold over 50k of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries.”
She went on to add, “I put my blood sweat & tears into 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. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”
Minaj also tweeted, “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 #QueenRadio but I won’t On Tuesday. I love you guys so much.”
Scott’s Astroworld made it to no. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts in his debut week. Earlier this week, Scott’s girlfriend Jenner posted about his upcoming tour, writing, “Me and storm ready for tour,” adding a link to his site, which went out to her 113 million followers.
Minaj doesn’t seem to have a beef with the Kardashian-Jenner family. In fact, Kim Kardashian attended her album launch party hours before Kylie’s 21st birthday celebration. But Minaj is also close pals with Rob Kardashian’s ex, Blac Chyna, who was previously engaged to Kylie’s ex, Tyga, before he left her for Kylie.
