I always tell you the streaming services are corrupted and can be bought off.
What you don’t usually see is the reporting company participating in it which they did heavily for the manager everyone knows.
That song was nominally supposed to even make the top four, let alone number one.
Song: Stuck With U
Tekashi69 questions if US singles chart is being ‘manipulated’ to get Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber to number one
The rapper’s new song Gooba was released on 8 May 2020, the same day as Ariana and Justin’s lockdown-inspired charity single Stuck with U – the net proceeds of which will be donated to the First Responders Children’s Foundation. At the time of writing, it was unclear which song had made it to number one, as the chart dated 16 May 2020 lists Say So by Doja Cat featuring Nicki Minaj at the top spot. Tekashi, however, claims to be in possession of an industry forecast, which he shares in his video. ‘I’ma make this real quick, because I’ll be real disappointed if Billboard gives paid-for number ones, somehow manipulate the charts…’ said the star, also known as 6ix9ine. ‘I want the whole world to see this, because what I’m about to show you is a forecast, right, of what every label in the world gets. Atlantic, Interscope, Republic, Columbia, Sony, Universal Music, every label gets this, right?’
The rapper, who is currently under house arrest, then presents the email in question to the camera via his phone. ‘This forecast – what’s today, Friday? – so it was sent yesterday. This is the forecast from yesterday, right? Number one, Doja Cat, Say So. Number two, 6ix9ine, Gooba. Number three, the Weekend, Blinding Lights. Four, Megan [Thee] Stallion, number five Ariana Grande, Stuck With U. ‘Last night, which is completely illegal, last night, last second, last hour, Stuck With U by Ariana Grande submits 60,000 units out of nowhere. Completely out of nowhere.’ He then swipes to a different email. ‘This is the forecast they sent every label. It puts Ariana Grande with Stuck With U at 43.7, which jumps 12 points.’ ‘They went from being fifth place to first place out of nowhere,’ the 24-year-old continues. ‘It puts Gooba [at] 40 points. So Gooba never jumps to number one, but Ariana jumps from number five to number one?’ – Source
