Ariana Grande commented on 6ix9ine’s accusations in a post on Instagram: “To those who are not happy with his place on the list this week and are trying hard to take down hard-working women (and only the women …) I ask to be more humble. Be thankful that you are on the list, that there are people who want to listen to your music. That is a privileged position. ”
“Congratulations to all of my talented colleagues in the top ten this week. Even number 3 ”, the singer ended her message on Instagram. Justin Bieber also joined the discussion. He said that when talking about Ariana Grande, they should also involve him, because it is also about his song.
Billboard himself also published a statement about the events on his website. The number of streams of the YouTube video cited by 6ix9ine is a global figure. But in the Hot 100, only the streams from the United States are counted.
