Nicki Minaj isn’t too pleased with Spotify right now. Particularly as it concerns her new album Queen and, in her opinion, the streaming service’s lackluster promotion surrounding the release.


Referencing Drake‘s recent Scorpion SZN promotion, which left many subscribers outraged, Minaj went off on Twitter… “Spotify had to teach me a lesson but rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest; inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most.”

A rep for Spotify has since spoken out to Variety and feels the promo was sufficient:”Spotify supported Nicki Minaj with a Times Square billboard, a host of the largest playlists, New Music Friday and the new music release shelf. Her song ‘Bed’ actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign.”

“The company continues to be big fans of Nicki.”

Queen has failed to reach the number one spot in the US in its first week, as Travis Scott remains at the top for his new album Astroworld.
