In the end, Astroworld took the crown - recording 205,000 equivalent United States sales versus Queen's 185,000.

Nicki meltdown comes after the rapper's new album "Queen" didn't reach its expected first-week sales targets. She believed that Jenner's post about Scott's album, Astroworld, gave it an unearned boost in listenership that should have otherwise been hers. With no requirement of redeeming the album! Scott, she argued, bundled Astroworld tour tickets with copies of the album - a scheme Minaj herself and many other popular artists employ these days - but didn't actually announce tour dates yet, which Minaj considered an artificial inflation of his numbers. I spoke to him.

The Queens, New York native, whose full name is Onika Tanya Maraj, said she talked to Scott, and 'he knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week, ' in spite of his Billboard status. Read Nicki's tweets below.

She then declared: 'I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA!.

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.

Rapper Nicki Minaj on Monday afternoon compared her struggles in the music industry to the work of abolitionist Harriet Tubman during the slavery era. But Nicki Minaj made a decision to bring the controversy, as she so often does, when she struck up a friendly beef with Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, and their daughter, Stormi Webster. She also took aim at Spotify and Apple Music over the tactics used to promote Drake's "Scorpion".

She claims that Spotify punished her for this decision by freezing promotion of her record. Even tho they've been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time'. I bit my tongue last #QueenRadio but I won't On Tuesday.

She continued: "Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest [Drake]; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most..."

She added: 'My label didn't want to defend me for fear of Spotify trying to teach Ariana [Grande] a "lesson" too!'

Just one day after calling out Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott on Twitter, Nicki Minaj is expected to sit RIGHT by them at the VMAs on August 20.
