Nicki Minaj slams Spotify and Travis Scott after #2 U.S. chart debut

Nicki Minaj Calls Out Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Spotify & More After 'Queen' Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

Nicki Minaj Has a Theory About Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Spotify, Ariana Grande…

These tweets could make for an uncomfortable situation later this evening, as a seating chart for the VMAs reveals that Minaj is slated to sit directly in front of Scott and Jenner.

"We both experienced this for the first time, so I love learning together and just watching him with her", she said of Scott's relationship with Stormi. It's also immaterial to everyone except a small number of people- Minaj, her management, and her diehard fans-who really care about No. 1 albums.

For backstory: Nicki is accusing Travis of inflating his album sales by selling the album, tour tickets, and merch as a package. Billboard says they'll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!' "He knows he doesn't have the No. 1 album this week".

Nicki vowed to address it further on her "Queen Radio" show, and then turned her attention to Spotify, suggesting debuting her album on her Beats 1 show meant the competing streaming service was punishing her. It's simply the way culture works: Nicki has been around for almost a decade now, and there are newer rappers who have the juice she and others once had.

Twitch Prime Will No Longer be Ad
Now that those benefits being slashed, specifically in the area of gaming, Prime feels like more of a luxury than anything else. Amazon Prime members will no longer receive 20% off new games when they pre-order, the company revealed today.

"Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio", she blasted.

While we're not sure who's even nominated for the not-at-all coveted award, according to a recent Instagram post from the Queen artist, The Huffington Post is in the running for an article they wrote criticizing some of her recent comments about Harriet Tubman and Spotify. I bit my tongue last #QueenRadio but I won't On Tuesday. "They took away my promotion they had promised for the first couple days because of this". Nicki, looking at Queen's early sales, suspected retaliation on the part of Spotify after she worked with Apple to produce Queen Radio, a special Beats 1 radio show on August 8 to promote her album, which was released on August 10.

She added: 'My label didn't want to defend me for fear of Spotify trying to teach Ariana [Grande] a "lesson" too!'

Following Nicki Minaj's rant towards Spotify, Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Drake and more, Chance The Rapper took to Twitter to speak on the narrative surrounding Nicki. Her song "Bed" actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign.
