It is raining in the fourth quarter of this year megan you stallion. just won the case against torylandsA judge in a separate case ruled Wednesday that her record label demanded that her hit album “something for beauties’, according to her contract, was declared to be smaller than an album. This also means that the rapper is also known as Megan Pitt’s million dollar lawsuit 1501 Certified Entertainment It is also possible to move forward.
According to Rolling Stone MagazineThe label initially asked the court to bypass the trial and rule directly that “Something for Thee Hotties” was not titled an album because it contained previously available recordings and allegedly “failed to follow the proper approval process.”
Pitt responded to the motion on Dec. 19, asking for an opportunity to argue her case in court.
“Pete should be allowed to appear in court to present evidence and testimony to the jury that she did everything that was required of her in delivering and releasing the album,” the response document read.
The document states that the album included skits and improvisations because, although some of them could be heard on YouTube, the public never bought them.
“If there is any ambiguity about the term ‘previously not published,’ it should be left to the jury as a matter of fact,” the filing reads.
Pitt also said that after 300 Entertainment reportedly purchased the exclusive rights to produce, distribute and sell her work, she began working with them to make it happen. She further shared that prior to the album’s release, the company “keeps 1501 informed about the progress” and provided 1501 with a link to the project. 1501 did not “signify no objection” until two months after the album’s release, the document says.
In August, Pete’s complaint was amended to read “something for beauties” with”Trauma” “Both constitute the ‘album’ as defined in the recording agreement between the two parties,” so she “has satisfied all the option periods” in the contract she signed in 2018, and changed the request for non-monetary compensation to a loss of $1 million.
According to documents reviewed by Rolling Stone, the relationship between 1501 Certified and Megan Thee Stallion went south after she hired Roc Nation as her manager. She quickly learned that none of the agreements she made in her contract with 1501 met industry standards.
“When I joined Roc Nation, I got management — real management — and real lawyers,” Pete said in a 2020 Twitter video. “They were like, ‘Did you know it was in your contract?’ I was like, ‘Oh shit, this is crazy. No, I don’t know.'”
Even though Pitt won a restraining order and a settlement with 1501 back in 2020, she still has two more albums to complete in order to meet her contractual obligations. With that, the artist hopes to get the full $1 million to cover royalties she says she owes for her music.
