Megan Thee Stallion has claimed that her 1501 Certified Entertainment label tried again to prevent her from releasing new music. This time the track in question was a remix of BTS ‘summer hit “Butter”, which is due out on Friday. After Megan sought legal intervention for the song’s release – citing the same tangle that cut Suga last year – Megan received the go-ahead from a Variety court on Tuesday afternoon. Pitchfork approached 1501 representatives and Megan Thee Stallion for comment.
According to court documents Pitchfork saw, the Houston rapper claims that 1501 and her boss Carl Crawford did not approve the track because it would not be good for her career. Megan also claimed the label “did not take all necessary steps” to keep their music available for purchase and streaming. “All of these acts have detrimental, undesirable and irreversible effects on my goodwill, reputation and entire career,” she wrote in a statement, adding, “It is important that my new music is released on August 27th and as planned is distributed. “
On Tuesday afternoon, the Texas court issued a restraining order to Megan, ruling that 1501 and the company “had recently engaged and will continue to engage in conduct that resulted in the release of [Megan’s] new music.”
