6ix9ine claim Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber bought their way to the number one spot on Billboard

“You can buy number ones on Billboard” says Tekashi 6ix9ine, in an Instagram post accusing Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber of fraud.

On May 8th Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber released their charity single Stuck with U. On the same day 6ix9ine dropped GOOBA. Both tracks were received very well, with respective fans waiting to see who would claim the top spot on Billboard. GOOBA broke YouTube records by becoming the fastest video to reach 100m views by an American artist.

After landing the third spot on Billboard 6ix9ine went to Instagram to share his findings.

6ix9ine claims Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s track submitted 60,000 units in the last second out of nowhere before the count. Claiming half of those units were purchased with six credit cards. Also saying 20 million streams on his track were disqualified.

Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and manager Scooter Braun later posted responses to 6ix9ine’s accusations, discrediting the artist and explaining the 60k units

Billboard posted a length article disputing 6ix9ine’s credit cards and lost streams claims, which can be found here.

Undoubtably, these claims from 6ix9ine and increased media attention will help his latest track continue to bring in huge numbers online.
