According to Billboard, Travis Scott's Astroworld finished number one last week for the second straight week.
Nicki Minaj refused to accept that and claimed her album Queen -- which was in its debut week -- was really number one.
She also insisted that Scott told her he knew her album was the real number one.
Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I’ll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries ♥️ pic.twitter.com/CiYEuczgm3— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 19, 2018
If Nicki and Travis really had that conversation, Scott was just placating her chart rage.
Because during his performance at last night's VMAs Scott made it clear that he believed his album was number one.

“Astroworld number 1 right now. VMAs make some noise," he yelled at the end of his set.
He's not lying.
