NICKI SPEAKS HER MIND AFTER EPIC SHOWDOWN FOR #1

Following an epic showdown for #1 between Travis Scott's ASTROWORLD and Nicki Minaj's Queen, news of Scott's was a bitter pill for the YMCMB/Republic star to swallow. 

Minaj took to Twitter to voice her gripes with Scott's roll-out, Spotify's intent to punish her and called for changes to chart rules. Her implication? She deserves the #1 album this week. Don't expect a concession speech from Minaj, she claims, "I spoke to [Scott]. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week."

As for her beef with Spotify, Minaj contends the platform punished her for hosting her "Queen Radio" show on Apple Music. She accused Spotify of taking away a promo promised prior to her partnership with Apple. 

Regarding chart manipulation, Minaj questioned the tactics of bundling Scott's merchandise and concert ticket access with albums. Her roll-out benefited from similar bundles. 

Without further ado, the tea...
