Nicki Minaj isn’t the queen of hip-hop after all. After releasing her newest album Queen, it was highly anticipated to do great. However, there were many who were disappointed on the album overall, saying it felt stale and boring. What sucks for her is that she didn’t even debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She was beaten by Travis Scott, who gets to enjoy his second week at No. 1 with his newest album Astroworld. Even though Scott’s current position is well deserved, Minaj isn’t taking it very well. You can taste the saltiness in the air from her vibes alone.
You see, in many cases like this, being humble is highly respected for the simple fact that you acknowledge the talent that won. But no, Nicki does the complete opposite. She even decides to go above and beyond by letting people know she deserved that No. 1 spot. On Twitter recently, this is what she said regarding that:
I 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. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.
To break it down, Minaj is stating the reason for Scott’s success because of Kylie Jenner. She sees that he has the convenience of getting his album easily promoted with her help. And followed by her claims that Spotify punished her by promoting her album significantly less.
Although she is right about Scott’s album being promoted higher because of Jenner, it’s really nothing to hate on. Regardless of that, his album was amazing and actually better overall. Astroworld received great reception from critics while Queen received mixed views.
Do you think Minaj is being a hater or is simply stating facts? Well, either way, she still is doing good but overshadowed by Cardi B in every aspect this year. This may be the reason she’s so feisty. Well better luck next time Nicki.
