The rapper took legal action against her label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, who allegedly were preventing her from releasing the track. Megan Thee Stallion — whose legal name is Megan Pete — submitted a petition Tuesday, August 24, seeking “emergency relief from the Court before this Friday, August 27, 2021, to allow her new music to be released this week as previously scheduled.

The remix is reportedly set to release this Friday. The court filing stated that the inability to release the remix would be irreparably detrimental to Megan Thee Stallion’s career.

If Pete is not allowed to release a new track this Friday on which she is the featured artist in a remix with BTS of the song called, ‘Butter,’ her music career will suffer irreparable damage, including a devastating impact to her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry.
