Nicki Minaj revealed she was upset with Travis Scott's methods of selling his album!
Nicki Minaj recently released her latest album 'Queen' to plenty of fan love, but it was beaten to tthe top of the US charts by rapper Travis Scott's latest effort 'ASTROWORLD'.
But in a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Nicki revealed that the fact Travis Scott, who is dating Kylie Jenner, beat her to the top of the charts made her want to punch him in the face.
You know my heart couldn’t take it.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 30, 2018
Ellen asked Nicki what she was feeling when Travis pipped her to the top spot and Nicki responded, "I wanted to punch him in his f*****g face!".
She went on to add, "I've had a number two album and I never cared, it's just that when you have anumber two album to someone who's selling shirts and merch and selling passes for a tour that's not even announced yet, it feels like you're being tricked, it feels like someone is playing a game and is beating you at a game as opposed to just selling music."
Nicki Minaj teamed up with the likes of Ariana Grande, Eminem and Lil Wayne on 'Queen', with the song 'Chun-Li' acting as the lead single taken from the project.
Travis Scott's 'ASTROWORLD' is the rapper's thrid studio album and most successful to date, featuring guest vocals from the likes of Drake, The Weeknd and Frank Ocean.
