Our team has done a deep dive and found the cause of the initial discrepancy. We’ve since then reprocessed the jobs necessary and re-finalized the charts. As a result, 6ix9ine’s “Dummy Boy” will be moving to #1… Our team is working quickly to identify the root cause of this discrepancy to ensure that we get it right the first time.
As the Barbz have attempted to launch a new campaign via their hashtag. They’re also adding their thoughts as to why they think Nicki’s 4th studio album, “Queen,” deserves a recount. Check out some of Barbz tweets below.
