Megan Thee Stallion’s label has responded with a countersuit. In Harris County District Court, her label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, has filed a countersuit. The countersuit argues that the Houston rapper is in violation of the contract and that her most recent release, Something for Thee Hotties, does not satisfy the definition of an “album” as defined by the three contracts she has signed with 1501.
Megan also owes royalties on non-recording money, according to 1501 Certified Entertainment, as a result of her attempts to have Something for Thee Hotties thrown out as an album.
Megan Thee Stallion had sued the company in February over the definition of an album
1501 stated that Stallion’s release featured just 29 minutes of fresh content and had not been pre-approved by the label in its plea for a favorable judgment from a Houston court. The singer is aware that each album must feature at least twelve new master recordings of her studio performances of previously unheard musical works, according to the label’s counsel.
She’s also aware that 1501 has the ability to approve each album’s musical compositions. In regards to the complaint, he stated that none of the prerequisites were satisfied, and thus her mixtape “Something for thee Hotties” cannot be considered an album.
Megan’s lawyer, Brad Hancock, rebutted the statement, stating it was simply an attempt by the label to exploit Megan and force her to work for them. Megan had already sued her label, claiming that Something For Thee Hotties matched the requirements of an album. According to the paperwork. Meg said that under the terms of her contract, the sole “defining criterion” of an album was that it be 45 minutes long.
Megan Thee Stallion has had problems with her label in the past. She insulted them in 2020 for refusing to let her release new songs and renegotiate her contract. In 2020, she filed a lawsuit against them, seeking that her contract is canceled.
After a judge granted her a temporary restraining order, she sued 1501 again in 2021 to block the publication of her featured verse on BTS’s “Butter” remix. An injunction was granted to her by a judge, allowing the song to be released.
