The Grammy-nominated artist, 35, took to Twitter on Sunday to point out that Scott sold more than 50,000 copies of Astroworld "with no requirement of redeeming the album" and 'no dates for a tour, ' while relying on Kylie's enormous social network for promotion. I spoke to him.
In he rant, Nicki also revealed that she had spoken to Travis about the ordeal, and alleged, "He know he doesn't have the #1 album this week".

Those package deals, Minaj claims, shouldn't count toward's Scott's Billboard ranking, especially since his extremely famous girlfriend suggested that fans who attended the Astroworld tour could maybe, possibly, conceivably get a glimpse of their equally famous baby. Her song "Bed" actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign.
