Nicki Minaj Slams Travis Scott Again: Why My Performance Was The Best At The VMAs — See Diss Nicki Minaj may have lost out the number one album posi
Nicki Minaj may have lost out the number one album position to Travis Scott, but she’s proclaiming victory over him by having over triple the views for her MTV VMAs performance.
Nicki Minaj, 35, is still feeling the sting of her new album Queen failing to debut at number one on the Billboard Top 200, as Travis Scott‘s Astroworldreigned on top for the second week in a row. But she is feeling the satisfaction of having nearly triple the views on MTV’s YouTube page for her VMA performance as opposed to the Houston rapper’s set. “Guess which performance is the MOST VIEWED from Monday’s VMA’s????!!! Link in my bio to check it out! Thank you to this crowd. You guys made this such a legendary time. Love you. Love you. Love you so much,” she wrote on her Instagram on Aug. 22 along with a clip from her epic performance inside the futuristic mall beneath One World Trade Center called Oculus.
She also added the line from “Ganja Burns,” which she performed writing “YOU COULD NAME ANYBODY, WEATHER MAN, PICK A DAY! KOBE, KD, KYRIE! PICK A K!!!!!!” That line follows the powerful rhyme “Put my blood, sweat and tears in perfecting my craft/Still every team’s number one pick in the draft.” Nicki absolutely slayed at the VMAs, performing a medley four songs off her new album. She kicked it off with a few lines from “Majesty,” then moved on to “Barbie Dreams,” before delivering the lines from “Ganja Burns” a capella, then ended the set with her current top five hit “FEFE,” her collab with Tekashi69.
Nicki’s performance has 4.2 million views on MTV’s YouTube page as opposed to enemy Travis’ 1.3 million views. However, she wasn’t the most viewed performance of the 2018 VMAs. That honor goes to her good pal Ariana Grande, 25, whose dramatic Biblical rendition of “God is a Woman” as 5.6 million views
