Megan Thee Stallion granted restraining order against label

A restraining order was issued against Megan Thee Stallion’s record company to prevent them from allegedly interfering with her efforts to promote her American Music Awards nomination.

The “Hot Girl Summer” star, who has been locked in an ongoing legal battle with 1501 Certified Entertainment for the past two years, claimed in the new legal documents that 1501 officials “unlawfully” tried “to block or interfere with (Megan) exploiting, licensing, or publishing her music” in the run-up to the AMAs on Sunday.

A Texas judge granted the order against 1501 and the rapper’s distributor 300 Entertainment, stopping them from “preventing or blocking the use and exploitation” of Megan’s music for promotional purposes up until 20 November.

The ruling states that Megan “provided evidence” showing the label “recently engaged and will continue to engage in threatening and retaliatory behaviour that will irreparably harm” the Savage hitmaker’s music career. 

A hearing will take place on the matter on 22 November – two days after the awards show.

Megan has been locked in a legal battle with 1501 over her record deal since 2020. They have been arguing in court over whether her 2021 compilation Something for Thee Hotties constitutes an album under her three-record contract – she believes it does, but they do not.
