After the rapper accused Ariana Grande of manipulating the Billboard charts to get her collab with Justin Bieber, ‘Stuck With U’ on number 1, she clapped back. Furthermore, even though Tekashi 6ix9ine only attacked Ari for some reason, Justin was also quick to respond to his claims!
He wanted to make it as clear as possible that he and Ariana did not buy their number 1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 chart, eventually pushing Tekashi’s track, ‘GOOBA’ to number 3.
Just like Ariana, Justin was pretty annoyed that while Tekashi went all out with the accusations against the talented songstress, he did not even mention his name once during his rant.
Justin posted a long response on his IG Stories, writing: ‘He says his streams don’t count. They do but he’s counting his global streams and this is a domestic chart so just the domestic streams count. He said 30,000 was bought with only 6 credit cards but that’s a lie. The rules are clear – 1 credit card can buy max 4 copies. Anything over and the entire amount gets thrown out. Nielsen company checks this and found all of our sales were legit because our fans are amazing and bought them.’
Bieber went on to defend his and Ari’s fans, asking the rapper not to ‘discredit our fan base with false info.’
Finally, he mentioned what also ticked off Ariana – that she was the only target of his attack even though the song was obviously a duet between the two of them.
‘This is my song with Ariana Grande and I’m honored to work with her to help raise money for a great cause [the First Responders Children’s Foundation.] If you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song,’ he concluded his message..
