Billboard Issues Response To 6ix9ine Accusations Of Manipulating Charts

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been dragging Billboard for allegedly manipulating the charts in favor of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber after his record breaking single “GOOBA” didn’t deny #1 on the charts.

“Imma make this real quick, ‘cause I’ll be real disappointed if Billboard gets paid for No. 1s [and] somehow manipulate the charts,” he earlier said in an Instagram video.




The rainbow haired rapper shared his findings in a recent investigation into the Billboard charts. 6ix9ine and his team pressed Billboard about Ariana Grande’s and Justin Bieber’s new collaboration “Stuck With You” to find out that there were allegedly six credit cards used to purchase half of 60K units moved at the last minute.

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber have since responded to the allegations and just in time, Billboard have issued a response to 6ix9ine’s manipulation accusations. “The chart forecast referenced was not created nor provided by Billboard to the industry,” they wrote in a newly published article.

“Those with access to sales, streaming and radio data from various sources often create their own chart models and update them at their own frequency. Billboard does not distribute any Hot 100 ranking forecast to labels, management or artists.”

Billboard added that the number listed on 6ix9ine’s “GOOBA” YouTube video shows global plays, while they only count U.S.-based plays. Billboard also addressed the “six credit cards” claim.




“Billboard and Nielsen Music/MRC Data conducts audits on all sales reported with access to purchase-level detail, and works with data partners to recognize excessive bulk purchases and remove those units from the final sales total. All titles this week, as in every week, were put under the same scrutiny.
