Nicki Minaj goes off at Travis Scott over album sales

Nicki Minaj has slated Travis Scott and Spotify after her new album missed out on the top spot in the US charts.

The 35-year-old singer’s latest record ‘Queen’ landed at number two with 185,000 sales, with the 26-year-old rapper’s LP ‘Astroworld’ beating it with 205,000 copies, and she has hit out over his ‘Season Passes’ which gave fans pre-sale access to tickets if they bought the collection.

Taking to Twitter, she ranted in a series of posts: “Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him.

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.

She pointed to Drake’s own show on Apple’s Beats 1 network and argued he was rewarded where she has felt punished.

She added: “Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most. Oh, I can’t wait for #QueenRadio on Tuesday. They took away my promotion they had promised for the 1st cpl days b/c of this.”
