It looks like no one can stop Mega Thee Stallion now. Megan Thee Stallion is once again at odds with her labels 1501 Certified Entertainment. On Tuesday (Aug 24), the rapper filed new court documents saying that 1501 is blocking her from appearing on a remix of BTS' Hot 100-topping hit "Butter" that's supposed to drop this Friday, asking a Texas judge to step in and apply a previous ruling permitting her to release new music to this instance as well.
The documents claim that the "WAP" rapper, born Megan Pete, filed an emergency temporary restraining order (TRO) to allow the remix's release after 1501 CEO, former Major League Baseball star Carl Crawford, and his partner, Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince, refused to approve the track. In addition, the documents also claim that 300 Entertainment, the label which is responsible for distributing Mega Thee Stallion's music through 1501, co-signed 1501's decision to block the forthcoming release.
It is clearly unfair what her label is doing with her. Blocking a release isn't anything the label should go for. Mega Thee Stallion claims that if the"'Butter Remix" isn't released then it'll affect her music. In clear words, she said that her "art will be impacted, the release of the song will be derailed, and Pete's goodwill, reputation and overall career will suffer", according to the filing. Not just this, preventing this release will also affect her relationships with her fans as well as the BTS ARMY.
But late on Tuesday, a judge ruled in Megan's favour regarding the lawsuit and she has been cleared to release the remix this week. So, it looks like the Butter Remix is all set to release on August 27, 2021, at 1 PM KST.
The fans seem really excited about the collaboration. The fact that the original version is still in the Top 10 of Billboard Hot 100 Charts speaks a lot about the all-famous English Track.
