Taylor Swift fan tries to stop Kanye’s album from going No. 1

A Taylor Swift fan is taking her support for the entertainer to a new level after the fan hopped on social media to encourage other "Swifties" to stream Beyoncé’s new single to prevent Kanye’s new "Vultures 1" album from going to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"SWIFTIE EMERGENCY," read the tweet from the now-private account. "Beyonce’s new single ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ is challenging Kanye West for #1 debut on Billboard Hot 100, the user wrote. "Let’s buy and stream Texas Hold ‘Em to block him from the top spot," the superfan continued. "Remember, he dragged Taylor on his latest Instagram story."

The rapper posted a screenshot of the social media post on his Instagram page, responding to the fan. In the post written in all caps, West said he wasn’t thinking about Swift and talked about the hardships last year with family and friends. He also claimed "Vultures 1" was taken off platforms to block its first week sales. 

How did the rift between Kanye and Taylor Swift start?

Swift and West have a strained relationship going back to 2009 when he interrupted the singer’s acceptance speech for the Best Female Video award at MTV’s Video Music Awards. Later in the show, Beyonce, who won a VMA for the Video of the Year, invited Swift to come on stage to finish her acceptance speech. 

Through the years, West alleged that he’s helped Swift’s career, which has ignited the beef between the entertainers over time.
