2020 has been a great year so far for Roddy Ricch, seeing his debut album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial hit the top of the Billboard 200, as well as his single “The Box” becoming his first-ever No. 1 track on the Billboard Hot 100.
Justin Bieber tried his best to get the No. 1 spot with his record “Yummy,” giving his fans instructions on how to get his record to that coveted spot. He went as far as to tell his international fans to download a VPN to stream the track on repeat. Unfortunately for the pop star, he didn’t get that No. 1 spot he was after. Now, Selena Gomez is trying similar tactics to dethrone Roddy from his place on the charts.
“I just found out that my album is neck-to-neck with another incredible artist,” she said. “I told people before that, you know, it’s not about numbers for me, but I would love for the most important album I’ve ever released to become No. 1. So, if you don’t mind streaming it or listening to it on all the platforms, it would mean the absolute world to me. This is, again, something I’ve dreamed about for so long. But, regardless, I just hope that you guys are enjoying it and that it’s something that you all can just enjoy and have. So, no worries. Either way, I’m happy.”

In response, much like he did with JB, Roddy promoted her project on his Twitter instead of his own project.
