Justin Bieber just blasted Tekashi 6ix9ine claiming that he is the rightful owner of the #1 spot on the Billboard charts. The singer also warned the rainbow rapper he better watch his mouth when it comes to Ariana Grande.
Bieber clapped back on Instagram after Tekashi 69 accused Ariana Grande of somehow manipulating #1 spot on the Billboard charts — and purchasing the position for her song with JB ‘Stuck With U.’
“He says his streams don’t count,” Justin wrote. Obviously, referring to Tekashi’s allegation 20 Million of his streams went uncounted.
He continued, “Yes they do but he is counting his global streams and this is a domestic chart so only domestic streams count. 60,000 units came because we don’t disclose our numbers until end of the week. That’s called strategy.”
Justin Bieber also addressed the allegation of a conspiracy behind the additional 60K streams added to his final numbers, calling it a ‘lie.’
“He said 30k was bought with 6 credit cards but that is a lie. The rules are clear one credit card can buy max 4 copies. Anything over that the entire amount gets thrown out. Nielson company checks this and found all our sales were legit because our fans are amazing and bought them.”
Like a true boss, Justin warns Tekashi if he is going to go after Ariana Grande he is going to deal with JB too!
“Don’t discredit our fan base with false info. This is my song with Ariana Grande and I am honored to work with her to help raise money for a great cause. If you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song,” he wrote.
Interestingly, around the same time as Justin’s message was posted, Tekashi 69 took to Instagram to seemingly apologize to Ariana but also point out he is speaking for those who are less fortunate, and not able to use fame to help their causes.
“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 without a father,” Tekashi wrote.
He continued, “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 ?”
