Nicki Minaj's latest album Queen debuted at No. 2 behind Travis Scott's Astroworld, and according to the Barbie, his baby daughter, Stormi, is somewhat to blame.
No, no. "A six-month-old has no such power," you might say. Unfortunately, the"Barbie Dreams" rapper explained her theory through a series of tweets.
Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries ♥️ pic.twitter.com/CiYEuczgm3— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
According to Minaj, Scott wasn't playing fair by having his baby mama post about her and their daughter's excitement for his upcoming tour as a means to sell merch.
"Me and storm ready for tour. shop.travisscott.com," Jenner wrote in an Instagram post, which Minaj claims spiked Scott's sales by 50,000 units.
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.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
The Queens-bred rapper took to Twitter once again to claim she's only joking, but not before people called her out for beefing with a baby:
People are calling me thinking I’m huffing & puffing. Omg y’all this is sarcasm/dry humor. Yikes. I’m having the most iconNIC time. Come let me kiss you. 😩😘😘😘 Who’s coming to the secret show? When people call me & hear me crackin up laughing they seem so puzzled. Loosen up 😅— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
Sarcasm infamously doesn't translate well via text. However, Queen Nicki stands by what she said as merely being dry humor. The response to her alleged “dry humor” is where the real hysterics lie.
