Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande have been friends and collaborators for a while now, but when Nicki moved her Queen album release to be the same exact date as the release for Ariana’s album Sweetener, people were quick to point out the coincidence. Ariana fans are not too happy about it.
“I love nicki to death. By why is her album going to be pushed back the same day as ‘Sweetener’ now Sweetener will loose streams bc the barbz are going to be listening to queen and “Queen” is going to loose streams bc arianators are going to be listening to “Sweetener,” one fan tweeted.
Other fans started pitting the women against each other, talking about which album would “win” come August 17, and whether Sweetener or Queen would be number one on the charts.
“jesus is this what’s going on today? imma jus stop logging in at all lmfao. that’s my f*cking sister. she’s clearing a sample. buy and stream queen & sweetener aug 17 bye. these numbers don’t mean as much to the artist as they do to y’all. jus want y’all to listen to the project.”
And Nicki did the same, writing”I love this woman. Can’t wait for the fans to benefit from all the hard work on both ends.”
Guess that settles that!
