Nicki Minaj Calls Out Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Spotify & More After 'Queen' Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

Nicki is furious because she believed she would soar to the top of the Billboard Chart with her new album, "Queen". but Travis captured the #1 spot with his album, "Astroworld", which came out 2 weeks ago. Thank Jesus and thank you to my fans'. Her opening numbers are the second largest recorded for a female artist this year, following Cardi B's Invasion Of Privacy. Of that sum, a little over 78,000 were from traditional album sales (down 71 percent).the album tallied 125,000 SEA units, which translates to 167.5 million on-demand audio streams for the album's songs during the tracking week. Her fourth studio album debuts in second place with 185K units which includes 78K from traditional album sales. So I am so grateful. I lost out on 12 hours of sales and did 200K in one week after I was supposedly cancelled. But Nicki is REJECTING these Billboard positions and she just declared herself the true artist with the number one album in America this week.

Nicki also called out the streaming service Spotify for what she called a punitive reaction after she played cuts from Queen Radio on Beats 1 on Apple Music: 'Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio. I love you guys so much, ' she tweeted again.

Nobel Prize victor V S Naipaul passes away
Naipaul got a scholarship to study in England in 1950 and he came to Oxford University, where he met Patricia Hell. Two months after Hale died, Naipaul married his second wife, Pakistani newspaper columnist Nadira Khannum Alvi.

'I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc. recently did. He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week. 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries'. "Travis sold over 50k of these", Nicki wrote on Twitter in reference to the ticket bundles. 'I spoke to him last night & he said he's been selling clothes b4 the music. Billboard says they'll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now!' Nicki went on before claiming Travis himself is well aware he did not deserve the title.
