Hot 100 #1: Ariana Grande fires back at 6ix9ine's cheating claims.

Some people are just sore losers. They don't know how to accept defeat, even if it's staring them in the face. As if getting a #1 song is more important than the bigger issues the world is facing right now.

People are out here trying to survive in a pandemic. And little boys want to throw their toys out of the pram to have online hissy fits. So as we know... Ariana Grande has never been one to bite her tongue whenever somebody attempts to come for her ponytail. She certainly had some words for Tekashi 6ix9ine, who claims in a ranty Instagram video that he was robbed of the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

He accuses Justin Bieber and Ariana of selling around 30k copies with just “six credit cards” for their latest single 'Stuck with U.' The track has just nabbed the top spot, joining the ranks of Mariah Carey and Drake as the only artists in HISTORY to have three songs debut at #1 on the Hot 100. As a result, this becomes Ariana’s third and Justin’s sixth #1 single on the Hot 100. Ari wrote a lengthy Instagram post thanking fans for their support, but she wasn't going to let 6ix9ine get away with his accusations.

Here's an excerpt, but I recommend you read the ENTIRE post, as it is an actual drag.

I'm glad she doesn't allow anyone to sh*t on her parade. She is a hit-making factory and has proven time and time again that she can drum up those hits without resorting to scams and vice versa. Congrats on the number one song!

ETA: Justin Bieber has also fired back at the accusations.

ETA 2: 6ix9ine has directly responded to Ariana's post.

ETA 3: Scooter Braun (Ari & JB's manager) also responds to 6ix9ine’s accusations.

ETA 4: Billboard has directly responded to the accusations.

I can honestly & happily say, I've not heard neither one of these songs. I remember when having a #1 really meant something. Now, streaming has really hurt the music business even more. A #1 hit now doesn't even build anticipation for an album anymore. Gone are the days of a 50 Cent & Usher, where if you really had a HUGE #1 hit, your 1st week sales will have everyone feening for your album to drop. Now it's just whatever now.
