Tekashi 6ix9ine’s latest single did not top the Billboard charts, and he’s claiming fraud.
The rapper posted a video Monday on his verified Instagram account in which he alleged that the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 can be purchased.
At the heart of the dispute is Tekashi 6ix9ine’s claim that his new single, “Gooba,” received more streams than Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s duet, “Stuck With U.”
The rapper believes his song should therefore be in the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but that position went to “Stuck With U,” while his “Gooba” came in at No. 3.
So much buzz ensued over the allegations that Billboard published a piece explaining its methodology in calculating who holds what position on the chart.
