Nicki Minaj isn’t UPSET about her album being number 2 behind Travis Scott, she just wants to punch him in the face.
But don’t twist things, that does not mean she’s upset.
Nicki Minaj appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show on Monday and opened up about all the drama with Travis Scott after her album Queen took the number two slot while his album Astroworld slid to number one.
When all of this went down, Nicki was shading Kylie Jenner for Travis getting more album sales saying on twitter QUOTE, “put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing.”
She told Ellen QUOTE, “The thing is, it’s not anger, it’s what’s right and what’s wrong and what’s fair. I’ve had a number two album and I never cared. It’s just that when you have a number two album to someone who is selling shirts and merch, and selling passes for a tour that’s not even announced yet, it feels like you’re being tricked.”
What she’s referring to is that in the days leading up to Astroworld’s release, Travis Scott dropped a new item of merch on his website. What wasn’t made clear is that every item of merch he sold also came with a digital copy of his album. In reference to that, Nicki tweeted QUOTE, “Travis sold over 50K of these with no requirement of redeeming the album!” Which, to be fair to Nicki, is enough to push his album past Queen. According to Billboard, Nicki’s album sold 185,000 units while Scott sold 205,000.
Now it’s not like this merch+album deal is new to Nicki. She ALSO sold merch associated with Queen. She just didn’t do the 9 days leading up to the album like Travis did. She also didn’t partner with Louis Vuitton and Off-White to make her merch. So logically it makes sense why Travis sold more units than Nicki did, but that won’t stop her from speaking out about the injustice according to her.
She continued telling Ellen QUOTE, “I don’t like being bullied and I don’t like being taken advantage of and sometimes people use scare tactics against you because especially as a black woman, people will call you ‘angry’ or ‘bitter.’ So now it’s almost like we’re not allowed to defend ourselves or stand up for ourselves, and I’m not going to have that.”
