There’s definitely bad blood between rappers Travis Scott and Nicki Minjaj, and it all has to do with album sales. Back in 2018, Scott and Minaj both dropped their albums “Astroworld” and “Queen,” respectively, in the same week. According to Billboard, Scott’s album was No. 1 on the charts, selling 205,000 individual units, while Minaj’s placed second, only selling 185,000 units.
Well, Minaj clearly didn’t appreciate losing the top spot to Scott, because she went on a tweet storm, accusing Scott of inflating his album sales. “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,” Minaj tweeted.
She was referring to the season passes Scott was selling to fans on his website for his The Astroworld – Wish You Were Here Tour, which Minaj clearly felt wasn’t the same thing as album sales. And she didn’t stop there.
