Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber Fire Back At Claims They Bought #1 Spot

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber are in a war of words against Tekashi 6ix9ine after the rapper alleged they bought the top spot on Billboard's latest Hot 100 chart.

After Grande and Bieber's "Stuck With U" debuted at #1, while his own track "Gooba" came in at #3, Tekashi said Monday on Instagram, "I want the world to know that Billboard is a lie. You can buy #1s onBillboard." 

Without mentioning Tekashi by name, Grande responded, "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 you to take a moment to humble yourself, be grateful you’re even here. That people want to listen to you at all. It’s a blessed position to be in."

Meanwhile, Bieber added in a post, "If you're gonna say Grande's name, make sure you say mine, because it's our song."

Tekashi later clarified in a followup video, "I don't want you to think that I'm coming at you. I'm not saying that you're not talented, I'm not saying that you can't sing...You just don't understand my pain. My frustration is from Billboard."
