Tekashi 6ix9ine declares war with Ariana Grande and Billboard after the latter confirmed the collaboration between Ariana and Justin Bieber "Stuck With U," on May 18, won the No. 1 spot on the "Top 100" Billboard chart.

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber clearly refuted accusations by Tekashi 6ix9ine that Grande somehow purchased this week's the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Grande's duet with Bieber, "Stuck With U," was released on May 8 at midnight to raise money for the Children's First Responders Foundation. On the same day Tekashi 6ix9ine, with Daniel Hernandez as his real name, also dropped his new single, "Gooba," on May 8.

Just before Billboard revealed Monday's chart positions this week, 6ix9ine posted a video on Instagram, in which he claims Grande of manipulating the sales tracker for Billboard.

"They bought 30,000 units with six credit cards," "With six credit cards, they bought 30,000 units," he said, making reference to Grande and Bieber — though he only ever mentioned Grande by name. "Six credits cards. Now, again, you're gonna enjoy your No. 1. Explain how you buy 30,000 with six credit cards?"

"It's all manipulated, it's all fabricated. You can buy No. 1s."

However 'Gooba' debuted on Billboard Hot 100 at No. 3, behind Doja Cat's 'Say So' at No. 2.

In a post uploaded to Instagram on Monday afternoon (May 18), Ariana answered Tekashi 's prediction, "I didn’t have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn’t upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me," Ariana wrote in the caption for the Instagram post.  "My fans are everything to me. i promise i couldn’t ask for another fucking thing."

thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much. 🤍 there’s so much to celebrate today. 🤍 however, i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren’t the driving force in anything i do. i’m grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn’t have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn’t upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise i couldn’t ask for another fucking thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don’t usually do (i don’t give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)...my fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherfuckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they’re some of the greatest people i know. sales count for more than streams. u can not discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason.....), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you’re even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it’s a blessed position to be in. i’ve had a lot of “almost number ones” in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL .... and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. 🥰 and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. love u all a lot.

Justin quickly denied Tekashi 's accusations, shooting his claim down in a long message on his Instagram Story, “He said 30k was bought with 6 credit cards but that is a lie, the rules are clear one credit card can buy max 4 copies. Anything over that the entire amount gets thrown out. Nielsen company checks this and found all our sales were legit because our fans are amazing and bought them.”

Justin Bieber, 6ix9ine’in söylediklerine karşılık verdi. - “Onun streamlerini umursamadıklarını söyledi. Evet umursamadılar. Global streamlerden bahsediyor ama Billbaord ulusal bir liste ve dolayısıyla sadece ulusal streamler geçerli. 60.000 ünite satışımız var ancak bunları haftanın sonuna kadar kimseyle paylaşmadık. Buna strateji deriz. - 6 kart ile 30.000 kopya satın alındığını söyledi. Bu bir yalan. Kurallar gayet açık. Bir kart ile en fazla 4 kopya satın alınabilir. Nielsen şirketi bunları kontrol etti ve tüm satışlarımızın yasal olduğunu buldu. Çünkü bizim hayranlarımız çılgınlar ve şarkıyı satın aldılar. Yanlış bilgileri baz alarak hayranlarımızı sakın küçük düşürmeye kalma. - Bu Ariana Grande ile olan bir şarkım ve yardım amaçlı para topladığımız için de onunla çalışmaktan onur duyuyorum. Eğer onun adını ağzına alacaksan, benimkini de al çünkü bu bizim şarkımız.
