Megan Thee Stallion had previously planned to release a remix of BTS’ “Butter” this Friday — but in a new court filing, the rapper has alleged that her record label is preventing the song’s release.
The Grammy-winning rapper, 26, filed in Harris County, Texas, on Tuesday, accusing record label 1501 Certified Entertainment of preventing her remix of “Butter” with the superstar K-pop band from being released to the public this Friday, as per the documents obtained by Variety.
Megan (real name Megan Pete) said missing the previously scheduled debut of the song would do “irreparable damage” to her music career, having a “devastating impact to her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry.”
The filing also alleged that the label and its CEO Carl Crawford have “have done nothing to help Pete grow her career in the music industry and have only put up roadblocks in an attempt to stifle her artistic expression as a music artist and irreparably harm her career. Today is no different.”
An update reported by Variety is that a judge ruled that Megan is clear to release “Butter” on Friday. Megan went on to Instagram to celebrate this. She wrote, “LOVE YOU ALLL @bts.bighitofficial BUTTER REMIX 8.27.”
