Megan Thee Stallion was once again at differences with her label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, more than a year after she first cited concerns with the organization. The Houston native was compelled to petition for the release of her planned remix of BTS’ smash song “Butter” after the label tried to prevent her from doing so, according to TMZ. The filings asked for “immediate relief from the Court before this Friday, August 27, 2021, to allow her new song to be released this week as previously arranged.” Megan was fortunate in that she received exactly that.
According to Variety, a judge has approved Megan to share the remix of BTS’ chart-topping hit, allowing the song to be released on Friday. Her lawyers noted in documents that the attempted blockade breached guidelines established in a previous instance. She sued 1501 Certified Entertainment last year, accusing them of preventing her from releasing her 2020 EP Suga. Megan won the case, and on March 6, 2020, the EP was delivered.
“The release of new music from Pete is vital to maintain her status as a relatively new but still up and coming artist,” documents read. “Absent immediate help from the Court, Pete’s art will be impacted, the release of the song derailed, and Pete’s goodwill, reputation, and overall career will suffer detrimental, undesirable, and irreversible harm.”
The ruling comes after Megan shared the freestyles “Outta Town” and “Tuned In.”
