Megan Thee Stallion has claimed that her label 1501

Certified Entertainment once again attempted to

block her from releasing new music. This time, the

track in question was a remix of BTS’ summer hit

Butter,” slated to arrive on Friday. After seeking

legal intervention for the song’s release—citing

the same tangle that interrupted Suga last year—

Megan got a court’s green light on Tuesday

afternoon, according to sources . Pitchfork has

contacted representatives for 1501 and Megan Thee

Stallion for comment.

 

According to court documents viewed by Pitchfork,

the Houston rapper claims that 1501 and its head,

Carl Crawford, did not approve the track on the basis

that it would not be good for her career. Megan also

claimed that the label had “failed to take all necessary

steps” to keep her music available for purchase and

streaming. “All of these actions have a detrimental,

undesirable, and irreversible effect on my goodwill,

reputation, and overall career,” she wrote in a

deposition, adding, “It is essential that my new music

be released and distributed on August 27 as planned.”

 

Granting an injunction to Megan on Tuesday

afternoon, the Texas court ruled that 1501 and

company had “recently engaged and will continue to

engage in conduct preventing the release of [Megan’s]

new music.” The saga continues.
