Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber have come out to fire back at Tekashi 6ix9ine’s claim of about the pop duo buying their way up to the number 1 spot on billboard.
Tekashi came out to accuse billboard of getting paid for number 1 spot and having favorites after his song GOOBA was displaced by Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s Stuck with u and Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s say so to be ranked third on the chart.
Tekashi came out accusing the duo of buying their way to number one using 6 credit cards in another explosive video he shared on his IG which prompted a response from Ariana Grande.
@billboard YOU’RE A LIE AND CORRUPT. YOU GOT CAUGHT CHEATING AND THE WORLD WILL KNOW.
Ariana celebrated her number one spot on IG and tried to clear the air with a response directed at the recently released rapper without mentioning his name.
thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much. 🤍 there’s so much to celebrate today. 🤍 however, i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren’t the driving force in anything i do. i’m grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn’t have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn’t upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise i couldn’t ask for another fucking thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don’t usually do (i don’t give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)…my fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherfuckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they’re some of the greatest people i know. sales count for more than streams. u can not discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason…..), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you’re even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it’s a blessed position to be in. i’ve had a lot of “almost number ones” in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL …. and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. 🥰 and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. love u all a lot.
Justin has some words for Tekashi for calling our Ariana alone, he said “if you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song.
6ix9ine later shared another video explaining the reasons for his outburst and told Ariana not to see it as an attack on her but he is just hurt because he worked so hard to make it out of the projects and he is speaking for millions of kids that are not so lucky like her.
@arianagrande All I’m saying is I worked super hard to make it out of Brooklyn NY. I speak for the millions of kids who aren’t as fortunate as you. The millions who weren’t fortunate to be on T.V.. LIFE is REAL when you’re on welfare LIFE is REAL when you grow up with out a father. You don’t know what that is like. You say for me to be humble …. I don’t think you know what humble is………. YOU ARE VERY TALENTED AND BEAUTIFUL GOD BLESS YOU. But you will NEVER UNDERSTAND MY PAIN 💯
The rapper also announced he will be dropping a new music video this Friday
