The release of her latest album Queen has been a defining moment in Nicki Minaj‘s career as the American rapper put a lot of work into the creation of the project.
The album debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 behind rapper Travis Scott‘s Astroworld compelling the artist to lash out at all the different entities behind her supposed failure. The 35-year-old lashed out in a tweet on Sunday saying “I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. Lol. Im actually laughing,”

It has now been reported that Nicki’s supporting tour is off to an even worse start as the announcement of the postponement of NickiHndrxx Tour and rapper, Future‘s withdrawal from the American leg of their joint tour.
According to a source at Live Nation, the situation is dire considering the flimsy ticket sales to date.
“Nicki’s tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist. These are big arenas with up to 20,000 capacities. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050”
An industry insider shares their opinion on the source of her unstable behaviour. “Nicki has gone off the rails. She can’t take it that she sold less records than Cardi B (who’s stealing her thunder big time) in her first week; she can’t take it that Travis beat her to No. 1. Her ticket sales for her tour are in the toilet, and it’s making her even more crazy.”
Multiple sources also predict that figures could point to a possibility of the tour being cancelled altogether.
