Acclaimed Megan Thee Stallion and BTS worked on a remix of “Butter,” but the rapper’s label tried to block the music release. UPDATE. After reporting the ruling in favor of Megan Thee Stallion, BIGHIT confirmed the release of the remix of “Butter” for Friday, August 27 (EST).
The original version of BTS’s hit was released on May 21 of this year.
PREVIOUS. New lights on the remix of BTS’s “Butter” with Megan Thee Stallion. As Variety points out, a judge would have ruled in favor of the rapper in the case against her record label and Carl Crawford, whom she accused of wanting to block the launch of the collaboration.
The case came to light in an exclusive TMZ report. According to this, the famous 26-year-old filed a petition in court against the 1501 Certified Entertainment company and the executive director Carl Crawford alleging that they blocked the premiere of the song.
The Grammy winner for “Savage” would be the main star of the remix of “Butter” and “would be looking to expand her international fan base thanks to the massive brand of BTS” with this feat, according to the US media. However, she would face sabotage from the label that represents her and her CEO.
As for the reason for the blockade, according to TMZ, Megan argues that the agency is against the remix because supposedly it would not benefit her career; however, basically what they would seek is to obtain a good economic amount to allow the publication (which amounts to 100,000 dollars just for the agency).
In the allegations presented by Megan’s legal defense, the singer considers this pressure by 1501 Certified Entertainment as “extortion”.
Next, we quote what was specified by the medium: “She claims that 1501 told her that they don’t think the song is good for her recording career, but she says that the excuse is just a cover, and deep down the label is trying to shake it up. (…) and force her to pay them to sign the release of the song “.
To the aforementioned report, Variety added that Megan Pete’s petition was filed with Harris County, Texas on Tuesday.
Likewise, this medium detailed that she required “emergency help from the court before this Friday, August 27, 2021, to allow her new music to be released this week as previously proceeded (in reference to the similar case she won in the past against company and CEO) ”, according to the documents he presented.
As for the date mentioned, this would have been the one that would have been chosen for the publication of the issue before the blockade.
