On Tuesday, August 24, a Texas judge ruled in favour of Megan Thee Stallion in the singer’s ongoing court battle with her record label over the release of the remix of BTS’ song, Butter.
The WAP singer went to court against her record label for the second time in a year after she wasn’t permitted to release her collaboration with the K-pop group. She received an outpour of love and support from her fans during the ongoing legal battle.
However, some people are still not sure which label the 26-year-old singer is currently signed to.
Which record label is Megan Thee Stallion signed to?
Megan is currently signed to 1501 Certified Entertainment.
Major League Baseball (MLB) star Carl Crawford is the current CEO of the company.
Moreover, Megan’s court documents also claim that 300 Entertainment, which is another record label, distributes her music through 1501. (Billboard)
For the unversed, 300 Entertainment is one of the most popular American record companies. The firm was founded by Lyor Cohen, Kevin Liles, Roger Gold, and Todd Moscowitz in 2012.
Back in September 2019, Megan signed a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. However, the singer continues to release her music through 1501 Certified Ent and 300 Entertainment.
Singer’s court drama with the company explored
As per Billboard, court documents claim that the Savage rapper, filed an emergency Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) to allow Butter remix’s release.
The singer’s move came after 1501’s CEO, Carl, and his partner, ‘Rap-A-Lot’ founder J. Prince, did not approve of the track. In addition to this, the documents also claim that 300 Entertainment co-signed 1501’s decision to block the song’s release.
The rapper stated in her court filing that her “art will be impacted,” if the song’s release is derailed. She also stated that her “goodwill, reputation, and overall career will suffer detrimental, undesirable, and irreversible harm.”
Megan further urged the court to rule in her favour stating that the remix’s non-release will leave a devastating impact on her relationships in the music industry.”
So far, the reps from 1501 and 300 Entertainment have not commented on the whole situation.
Will the rapper leave 1501 Entertainment now?
Sources close to the rapper claim that she is not planning on leaving the record label but will definitely seek better terms in her agreement for the future.
The singer, whose full name is Megan Pete, previously dragged her label to court in 2020. At the time, she claimed that the company was preventing her from releasing her 2020 EP, Suga.
Back then, a Texas judge supported the rapper and ordered 1501 “to do nothing to prevent the release, distribution, and sale of Pete’s new records.”
