Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200 Behind Travis Scott

There hasn’t been a sales battle as close as the one between Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott in a long time. Throughout the week, Nicki’s Queen and Travis Scott’s Astroworld (second week on the chart) were going neck and neck with sales projections for both in the region of 175k.


When HitsDailyDouble reported their totals as 190k for Queen and 222k for Astroworld, the New York rapper reacted on Twitter saying that the official numbers will only come out Sunday so we shouldn’t treat the above as final.

Well now the official final numbers are in. Travis Scott remains at #1 with 205k copies sold this week and Nicki comes in at #2 with 185k copies sold. Incredibly, both rapper sold practically the same amount in pure sales at around 78k.
