Travis Scott album “Astroworld” beats out Nicki Minaj “Queen” album to spend it’s second week at number one on the billboard hot 200 chart. According to DJ Akademiks, Travis Scott second week sales are more than Nicki Minaj first week sales.

This will be Nicki Minaj second album in a row that won’t debut at number one on the billboard hot 200 even despite going number one in 80 different countries. Travis Scott is projected to sell over 170K for his second week. Nicki is expected to do around 150K to 160K her first week. If the predictions are true, that means Nicki Minaj would have sell less than Cardi B “Invasion of Privacy” album. Which would start a debate that Cardi B is officially the Queen of the rap game.

If Queen finds a way to debut at No. 1, Nicki Minaj will make rap history, as she’ll become the first female rap artist with three No. 1 albums. She previously hit the top with her second studio release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (in 2012), and her debut studio set, Pink Friday (in 2011). Her third album, The Pinkprint, debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Jan. 3, 2015-dated chart.

The official sales numbers will be announced by Billboard this Sunday, August 19th.
