Spotify Defends Promotion of Nicki Minaj's 'Queen' Album

Kylie Jenner went ‘makeup free’ on the cover of Vogue. Not everyone’s buying

Shortly after the song's release, Minaj chose to add it to her new album "Queen". "Billboard says they'll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!"

Nicki Minaj was slammed after she compared herself to Harriet Tubman.

Taking to Twitter, she ranted in a series of posts: "Travis sold over 50K of these". In another tweet, she claimed that Billboard was changing its standards, since the merch bundles boosted the total album units sold.

Minaj, who released her album Queen on August 10, had been venting since Sunday about her album failing to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, implying she was snubbed by rapper Travis Scott, whose album Astroworld claimed the top position. She believes Spotify is making an attempt to teach her a lesson about what happens when you drop your album on Apple before streaming services.

'Even tho they've been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time'.

The star later clarified that her comments were made with "sarcasm/dry humor" but promised to open up on the subject further on the next episode of Queen Radio, which airs on Tuesday.

However, most of social media is still confused as to why this is happening-and wasted no time. When people call me & hear me crackin up laughing they seem so puzzled.

Nicki Minaj is not pleased with fellow rapper Travis Scott and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner.

Neither Kylie, Travis or Nicki have commented on the recent rumours.

The original seating chart for the VMAs was partially released on Monday. And just behind them were Kylie and Travis.

Also in the vicinity were Blake Lively, Liam Payne and Gucci Mane.

Among other claims, Nicki accused Scott of juicing his numbers by bundling album downloads with concert tickets and merchandise, although she, too, bundled physical copies of her new project with tickets to her upcoming NickiHndrxx Tour with Future and 6ix9ine. However, according to TMZ, the reason is strictly business.
