On Thursday, the rapper took to his Instagram Stories to announce he may release another new song next week if enough fans purchase “Gooba” on iTunes. “Let’s get 10,000,” he wrote.
“Gooba” could be in the running for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 next week, which 6ix9ine addressed as a possibility in a since-deleted Instagram post.
“@billboard We’re watching this very closely,” he wrote. “The world is watching very closely, we love you and always supported the charting. On every platform we are dominating by a LANDSLIDE. The numbers are there and to be looked at. WITH NO RADIO WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREAMS.”
He continued, “I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early Im just making it clear that the world is watching.”
“Gooba” broke YouTube’s record for most streams in 24 hours and his Instagram Live session on May 8 also became the most-viewed IG Live stream with over 2 million viewers.
