Megan Pete, a US rapper, has dropped her long-awaited studio album ‘Suga’ — days after she spoke on the ongoing contract dispute between herself and her label company.
Some days ago, the 25-year-old songwriter, better known as Megan Thee Stallion, had accused 1501, her record label, of refusing to renegotiate her contract while blocking the release of her completed studio project.
But on Friday, Megan released the nine-track album, including two separate tracks featuring Kehlani Parrish, a US singer, and Gunna, an American rapper-cum-songwriter.
The album release came on the back of a temporary restraining order (TRO), granted by a district judge in Harris County, Texas, allowing her to release her music against the interest of her label.

After Megan had obtained the TRO, Carl Crawford, 1501 founder, filed an emergency motion to dissolve the restraining order but Beau Miller, the district court judge, denied the motion.
“The album at issue may be dropped for distribution beginning March 6, 2020,” Miller had ruled, while also making reference to J. Prince, Crawford’s colleague, who had spoken in favour of 1501.
“Mr. Prince shall refrain from threatening or posting threatening or retaliatory social media posts or threats against Megan, her agents, or her representatives.”
On the basis of requesting a renegotiation, Megan had said she had not understood the terms she agreed to when she signed with the record company years ago.
“It’s really crazy because all I did was ask to renegotiate my contract. And then it became a big old thing. When I signed, I didn’t really know what was in my contract. I was young,” she had said.
