A source at Warner Music Group has allegedly confirmed to Billboard that Megan Thee Stallion has signed a distribution agreement with WMG that includes services from a select global team.
The deal will allow Megan to maintain ownership of her music, while relying on the major label to push future releases. According to Billboard, Meg’s team will “include some staffers from 300 Entertainment as well as others across the company.” Megan was previously signed to 1501 Certified Music where she released her albums Traumazine, Something For Thee Hotties, and Good News. She announced she was amicably leaving the label in October and subsequently announced her plans to remain independent.
Megan released her previous LPs, 2020’s ‘Good News’ and 2022’s ‘Traumazine’ on 300 Entertainment and 1501 Certified, but in October, she told fans she no longer had a record deal so would be bringing out her next record independently.
Speaking on Instagram Live, she said: “This part of my album is definitely very much funded by Megan Thee Stallion because y’know… we tryna get off… y’all know what’s the tea.
“But I have no label right now and we’re doing everything funded by Megan Thee Stallion’s pocket. The budget is coming from me … Hot Girl Productions. It’s all coming straight from Megan Thee Stallion – Megan Thee Stallion[‘s] brain, wallet… we in my pockets, hotties, so let’s do our big one.
“We’re really doing our big one and I’m so excited. We’re doing something for the first time independently since it was just me and my mama. I’m so excited ’cause it’s literally just me this go round until we sign to a new label. But I don’t want to sign to a new label right now because I just want to do it myself.”
Megan – who previously took legal action against 1501 Certified Entertainment for allegedly trying to “interfere” with her control over her music and for allegedly trying to keep her locked into a contract – recently said her next record will mark a new chapter.
