Nicki Minaj's album, Queen, has done great commercial success since its release two weeks ago, with it landing at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Charts. Even though the ranking is one that many artists would kill for, Minaj is not too happy about it.
The rapper took to Twitter to explain why she feels cheated by the ranking, which has Travis Scott's Astroworld ahead of her.
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
Scott's baby mother, Kylie Jenner, and their baby, Stormi, were not left out of Minaj's tweet storm. The rapper believes Scott's album benefited significantly from Jenner's celebrity and promotion that she and Stormi will join Scott on tour.
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
Fans took note of Minaj's mentioning six-month-old Stormi.

The three were not the only ones Minaj blamed for her album not reaching first in sales. She also had strong words for the music streaming company Spotify.
Spotify put drake’s face on every playlist but told me they’d have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio. Even tho they’ve been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
She went on to tweet, "
