Tekashi 6ix9ine: Accused *Billboard* of Fraud

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their collaboration, “Stuck With U.”

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine accused them of stealing the title. He blamed Billboard magazine for allowing them to cheat. He claimed on Instagram that “six credit cards” bought 30,000 copies of “Stuck With U.” 6ix9ine demanded that his team investigate. He said in an Instagram video, (quote) “When we asked where was those six credit cards linked to, Billboard said we can’t disclose that information.”

Both Ariana and Justin denied the wild accusation. Bieber said on his Instagram Story, (quote) “One credit card can buy max 4 copies. Nielsen checks this and found all our sales were legit.”

Ari wrote at Instagram, (quote) “OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). They are ride or die MFers.” (E! News)

Hot Takes:

  • 6ix9ine is jealous because “GOOBA” finished third on the charts.
  • Time will tell. Popular songs typically have a long lifespan on the charts.
  • Purchase of “Stuck With U” went to a good cause: First Responders Children’s Foundation.
