After some delay and much anticipation, Nicki Minaj released her album QUEEN earlier this month. Minaj publicly questioned the legitimacy of the projection results, telling her fans to wait until Sunday, August 19. Today, the first weeks number for her album’s chart performance came in.

QUEEN came in second place on Billboard’s Hot 200 chart, moving 185,000 equivalent album units (78,000 in traditional album sales). Coming in at No. 1 is Travis Scott‘s ASTROWORLD for a second straight week, with 205,000 equivalent album units moved (also 78,000 in traditional album sales).

Minaj was, however, skeptical of the results. Shortly after the news surfaced, Nicki stating that she has the No. 1 album in the US and that Scott’s method of selling merchandise and tour tickets with ASTROWORLD should not count towards album sales. See her tweets below.
