Megan Thee Stallion has amended her complaint against her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, asking a Texas court to dissolve her contractual relationship with them and award her at least $1 million in damages.



Megan, real name Megan Pete, asked a Harris County judge to rule that her most recent album, Traumazine, and last year's, "Something For Thee Hotties," both qualify as "album[s]" under the terms of her contract with 1501, in a late last week amended complaint.

If successful, the rapper would be released from her 2018 contract with the label after having "satisfied all option periods." The latest lawsuit in Megan's protracted legal battle with 1501 is an amended complaint that she filed against her label earlier this year.

Asserting that her 2021 release "Something For Thee Hotties" qualified as an album under the terms of the rapper's contract with 1501, Megan filed a complaint in Harris County District Court in February. However, the label disapproved of the claim after the song's release. The label countersued Megan the following month, claiming that "Something For Thee Hotties" was just a collection of previously released material.

According to Megan and her legal team, 1501’s only requirement for something to be considered an “album” in their contractual agreement with the rapper is that it be over 45 minutes in length. It has a total runtime of 45:02.

1501 pushed back, arguing that their contract with Megan gave them oversight over what constituted an “album” for contractual purposes, and that they’d told her 'Something For Thee Hotties’ would not count. “She can’t just deliver us an album that we did not approve and then claim it satisfies her recording contract,” Steven M. Zager, an attorney for 1501, told Billboard back in February.

In their March countersuit, the label claimed Megan only appeared on 29 minutes of new recordings on 'Something For Thee Hotties’. It claimed that the rapper’s contract dictates that “she must include at least 12 new master recordings of her studio performances of previously unreleased musical compositions” to be credited for an album under contract.
