Megan Thee Stallion’s Planned Album Release to Be Blocked by Record Label

Days after the ‘Hot Girl Summer’ hitmaker gained a temporary restraining order against 1501 Certified Entertainment, music mogul Carl Crawford demands an emergency hearing on their legal dispute.

AceShowbizMegan Thee Stallion is facing a court fight over plans to release new music this week (March 06) as part of an ongoing legal dispute with her label bosses.

The “Hot Girl Summer” star was granted a restraining order against her 1501 Certified Entertainment chiefs on Monday, March 02, after claiming they were trying to stop her from dropping new material because she wants to renegotiate an unfair contract she signed when she was 20.

On Wednesday, March 04, music mogul and former professional baseball player Carl Crawford filed a motion to dissolve the temporary protection order, insisting the rapper, now 25, should never have been allowed to take the issue to court, because any dispute is supposed to be addressed in arbitration, as per the terms of their record deal – the same one Megan is seeking to have reworked.

In the documents, filed in court in Texas and obtained by TMZ, Crawford demands an emergency hearing on the matter, in a bid to block Megan’s hopes of sharing her latest project on Friday.

He argues he is simply exercising his contractual right to control distribution of her music, as the hip-hop beauty is still technically under contract, while he also calls into question the “disappointment of her fans” as a legal basis for Megan’s protective order request.

A decision on the emergency hearing had yet to be made as WENN went to press, but Megan appears to be pressing ahead with the launch of her new tunes regardless – in a post on Instagram, she announced a nine-track project called “Suga” will hit streaming services on Friday.
