Megan Thee Stallion, whose legal name is Megan Pete, may have a song called “Thot S***,” but she was 100% on her legal s*** this week.
Hot girl Meg will NOT be stopped from releasing her collaboration with BTS, which is a remix of their hit song, “Butter.”
On Tuesday, August 24, Megan filed a lawsuit against her record label alleging it was blocking her from releasing the collaboration, which is set for release on Friday, August 27.

In court documents obtained by Variety, “Stallion has submitted a petition against her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment and its CEO Carl Crawford, alleging that they are preventing her from releasing the song.”
Megan and her attorneys argued that blocking the release of her song would cause “irreparable damage” to her career and her work to expand her fanbase in the US and abroad.
On the contrary, 1501 Certified Entertainment told the artist via a “vague email” that the collaboration with the K-pop band would be not be “good for her career.”
Mind you BTS isn’t known for making FLOPS! In fact, “Butter,” spent nine weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100!
No Flops Here!
The only way 1501 CE was going to allow the release of the song would be if Megan signed a “waiver” and it received a fee of $100,000.00, which the rap star would not be entitled to.
Lucky for Megan, she has a great legal team.
“If Pete is not allowed to release a new track this Friday on which she is the featured artist in a remix with BTS of the song called, ‘Butter,’ her music career will suffer irreparable damage, including a devastating impact to her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry,” the document states. “Such irreparable injury to her personal goodwill and the silencing of her artistic expression in music cannot be compensated in the way of monetary damages. As such, Pete seeks emergency relief from this Court.”
In the lawsuit, Megan also alleged her record label has been doing nothing to further her career, “other than try to hurt it and make money off” of her.
Don’t Mess With Meg’s Money$
“They have no contact with me except when they want money, and they have done nothing to benefit my art,” she alleges in a declaration as part of the complaint. “The effort to try to restrain me from engaging in my artistic expression, and to prevent me from working with the hit band BTS cannot be quantified in terms of damages. An artist, especially a music artist, cannot be silenced without causing tremendous injury.”
Luckily for Megan, BTS and their fans… a judge ruled that she is clear to release the remix of BTS’ butter!
One more day and the “Butter” remix is out, folks!
