Tekashi 6ix9ine has been all over the Internet these past few weeks as he has been flaunting his riches and dropped his new single after getting out of the prison.
His new single, Gooba, has been trending and ranked number one in the Billboard chart soon after the release. However, the song has now dropped to number three, this week after Arianna Grande and Justin Beiber’s quarantine-themed Stuck with You, reached the peak.
After realizing that his new song has dropped below in the chart, he provoked something of a controversy and accused Billboard of manipulating the chart and rigged in favor of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The rapper, on Saturday, posted a video on Instagram claiming that the Stuck With U submits 60000 units out of nowhere.
The 24-year-old rapper seemed to have consulted an unspecified chart forecast that suggested the song by Ariana Grande unfairly reached the number one spot. He openly criticized the Billboard and labeled the renowned media brand a lie and corrupt. He also wrote that the company had caught cheating, and the whole world will know.
The shocking claim has divided the Internet, and now even Ariana Grande and Justin Beiber have slammed the Gumbo rapper. Ariana refuted the allegations made by 6ix9ine through the Instagram post but didn’t mention his name in the lengthy caption sharing her opinion. She mentioned that her fans and JB’s fans bought the song, and she was grateful that she has them [fans]. She indirectly slammed 6ix9ine (referring someone) to be humble for the position and respect a hard working woman.
Beiber also posted an Instagram story and claimed that their fans are amazing, and all the sales were legit. He also asked not to discredit their fan base with false assumptions. He also noted that the song was created for a noble cause, and he was honored to work with a talented singer like Ari.
The singer was recently released from prison due to his deteriorating health conditions in the wake of coronavirus pandemic earlier than the sentenced prison term. He was allowed to complete the rest of his prison term in home confinement.
6ix9ine pleaded guilty for racketeering charges and was sentenced for 47 years; however, the sentence was later reduced to just two years after he testified against his former gang-mates.
6ix9ine later responded to the backlash and directly addressed Ariana Grande in the Instagram video.
