Megan Thee Stallion has just won a legal battle after her record label refused to let her release new music.

The 26-year-old is signed to 1501 Certified Entertainment whose CEO is former professional baseball player Carl Crawford.

He launched the Houston-based record label in 2016 and signed Megan Thee Stallion, who was up-and-coming in the music industry at the time, in 2018.

Whilst Carl can be credited for turning Megan into a star, the pair have had a lot of drama in recent years, beginning when Megan sued the label after they signed a deal with Jay’s-Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation.

Now, there’s a new bout of drama going on between Megan and her record label. Here’s what’s going on…

Megan’s record label wouldn’t let her release new music

The drama began when Megan alleged that Carl Crawford and 1501 Certified Entertainment wouldn’t let her release a new song.

She wanted to release a remix of BTS’ Butter on August 27th which she featured on.

However, she claimed that it was blocked by her Carl Crawford and her record label.

Megan filed a petition against the label

Megan then decided to file a legal petition against 1501 Certified Entertainment in which she said they were wrongly preventing her from releasing the song.

According to documents filed in Harris County, Texas on Tuesday (August 24th), Megan said she is: “Seeking emergency relief from the Court to allow her new music to be released this week as previously scheduled.”

She added that if she is not able to release the Butter remix, her music career would “suffer irreparable damage” including a “devastating impact to her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry”.
