Fans have been hyping Ariana Grande up a lot recently, but right now some are calling her out for playing nice with Travis Scott. After Ari showed support for the rapper’s No. 1 single, which knocked Thank U, Next out of the top spot, a fan reached out with disapproval.
With Sick Mode, Travis scored his very first No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 Billboard Chart, which is a very exciting feat for the 26-year-old rapper. And when Travis tweeted his good news, Ari was quick to send congratulations his way.
so fucking dope. congratulations! ?— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) December 3, 2018
The exchange, as positive as it was, was met with some haters who said that Ariana should shade Travis because she “did it fair and square but he didn’t.”
Ari responded to one fan as gracefully as we expected her to.
if an artist you stanned were that close to having their first # 1 and they did all that they could in their power to get it (and they got it), you'd be celebrating ? it's an exciting feeling. love u.— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) December 3, 2018
Fans might have expected Ari to throw some shade at Travis because she had done so in the summertime when her good friend Nicki Minaj got into a public feud with him.
As you may remember, when Travis’ Astroworld took the top spot over Nicki’s much-anticipated Queen, she accused the rapper of using merch bundles, his girlfriend Kylie Jenner, and his daughter Stormi in order to boost his album sales.
In August, Nicki wrote on Twitter, “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.”
Regardless, Ariana decided to keep it positive and Travis returned the good vibes, reaching out to tell her how much he enjoyed the new Thank U, Next video.
Fans are already calling out for a collab, and we would definitely be here for it.
