Spotify Responds To Nicki Minaj’s Allegations

Nicki Minaj’s new album Queen debuting a number 2 on Billboard 200 behind Travis Scott’s second week of Astroworld did not go too well with her. Apart from blaming Travis for selling tickets to his tour without option of redeeming the album and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner for supporting the same, she also pointed her finger a Spotify for not pushing her on their service.


She alleged that because she debuted her album on Beats 1 radio a few minutes prior to it going live on other services, Spotify wanted to “teach her a lesson.” “Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most,” she continued.

Spotify has now responded to Nicki’s accusations that they did not support her with the following statement:

“Spotify supported Nicki Minaj with a Times Square billboard, a host of the largest playlists, New Music Friday and the new music release shelf. Her song “Bed” actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign. The company continues to be big fans of Nicki.”

In related news, Travis Scott has now been shifted to the other side of the room at tonight’s VMAs. He was originally set to be right behind Nicki. TMZ reports that reason is not because there might be a potential confrontation but because he has the number 1 album in the country and deserves to be seated in front of her.
