In case you missed it, Nicki Minaj went on a Twitter tirade earlier this week about the fact that her new album Queen debuted at no. 2, blaming everyone from Travis Scott (who remains at no. 1 thanks to Astroworld) to Spotify; Kylie Jenner to Drake. Spotify has now responded to Minaj's accusations that they did not do enough to support the release of her album.

A representative for the company told Hits Daily Double: “Spotify supported Nicki Minaj with a Times Square billboard, a host of the largest playlists, New Music Friday and the new music release shelf,” the statement reads. “Her song 'Bed' actually saw an increase based on the promotions put behind the campaign. The company continues to be big fans of Nicki.”

The Queens rapper originally claimed Spotify had to 'teach her a lesson' despite the fact that "they’ve been giving away my music for free for years & I am one of the top Spotify artists of all time." She says the streaming platform punished her, taking away crucial promotion of the album in its first for days of release, all because she played her album "10 minutes early" on her Beats 1 show, Queen Radio.

Nicki Minaj's next instalment of Queen Radio will air Tuesday at noon EST. With her recent callouts and Cardi B possibly shading her at the MTV VMAs Monday night, she'll likely have a lot to talk about.
