American rapper Nicki Minaj has raised serious concerns about the credibility of Billboard’s sales tracking for her latest album, Pink Friday 2.

The rapper claims that out of the 300,000 units reported to have been sold in its debut week, Billboard intends to filter out a staggering 100,000 sales, leaving her feeling sabotaged and questioning the integrity of the chart.

Minaj made the explosive revelation during a recent interview, expressing her frustration and disappointment with the situation.

The artist insisted that the alleged filtering of sales is a deliberate attempt to undermine the success of Pink Friday 2, leaving her fans and the music industry in shock.

The controversy arises just as the rapper celebrates what should be a milestone moment in her career, with Pink Friday 2 being well-received by fans and critics alike.

However, the shadow cast by the dispute with Billboard threatens to overshadow the achievements of the album.

Billboard, a reputable music chart organization, has not yet responded to Minaj’s accusations.

The rapper, known for her outspoken nature, took to social media to share her side of the story, calling out the charting organization and demanding transparency in the process.

Fans of Nicki Minaj have rallied behind the artist, expressing their support on social media platforms and demanding answers from Billboard.
