Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber had recently collaborated on a new song “Stuck With U.” Proceed from the track will benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation, which supports the children of paramedics, EMTs, firefighters, police and healthcare workers.
It apparently has been a tight race for this week’s Hot 100. Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande debut their first collaboration “Stuck With U” at No. 1 on the new Hot 100, giving both acts another leader on the all-genre singles ranking.
Tekashi 6ix9ine after being released from prison also released a banger song, “Gooba” which was highly successful. GOOBA garnered 43 million views within 24 hours, making it the most viewed hiphop music video in 24 hours. However, “Gooba” fell short to top the Hot 100 list and ended at No. 3 spot.
6ix9ine lost his cool and posted a video on Instagram claiming that his team had launched an “investigation” and found that “six credit cards” were used to purchase 30,000 units of the song.
Ariana Grande Reacts !
Ariana took this by posting a carousel of Billboard Hot 100 Charts with her song standing strong at No. 1 spot. She also added a lengthy caption to refute the accusations on her.
Grande began by thanking her fans for their support and explaining that having the No. 1 spot isn’t a priority for her before mentioning her defence.
“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 motherf-ckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life.” Grande added, “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. its a blessed position to be in.
Grande then offered “congratulations” to her “talented a– peers even number 3” that made to top 10 of the week.
Justin Bieber also shared a similar message on his Instagram story. His message began by explaining that streams do count towards chart positions but his high number is because of global count, while Billboard only considers domestic numbers.
“60,000 units came because we don’t disclose our numbers until end of week,” Bieber said, “That’s called strategy.”
Bieber later addressed Tekashi’s claim of 30,000 units purchased with six credit cards to be “a lie.”
He also pointed that Tekashi’s claims seemed to target only Grande, leaving Bieber, who shares the credits for the song. Bieber concluded, “If you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song.”
