Megan Thee Stallion, on side with BTS had a conflict with her label 1501 Entertainment. The controversy happened because of the record label holding the new Megan’s and BTS’s music. Once the debate had become public, the announcement of the song “Butter” soon came up on Twitter. In the end, a Texas judge filed a restraining order to allow the release of the new music.
The order said “conduct preventing the release of her new music” from 1501 Entertainment “would irreparably damage her goodwill, reputation, and overall music career and infringes on her rights to self-expression through her music.”
The court documents say due to Megan Thee Stallion and BTS publishing issues, their “art will be impacted, the release of the song derailed.” Because of the music delay, “devastating impact on her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry.”
This is not the first Megan Thee Stallion lawsuit against 1501 Entertainment. In March, the artist found the contract she signed “not only entirely unconscionable but ridiculously so.” She also claimed the paper “literally do nothing, while at the same time taking for themselves the vast majority of income from all sources.”
Main Megan’s concern was, “1501 don’t want me to put out no music.” She keeps explaining, “When I signed, I didn’t really know what was in my contract. I got management, real management. I got real lawyers. They were like, ‘Do you know that this is in your contract?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, damn, that’s crazy — no, I didn’t know.” Later, Megan’s lawyers filed a case based on inability to perform “standard record label functions.”
Eventually, the court ruled the label to stop Megan from preventing the release of new music. Below is her complete statement on the matter:
