Megan Thee Stallion has filed a petition against 1501 Certified Entertainment and its CEO Carl Crawford for blocking the release of a new song she planned to drop this Friday (Aug. 27).

According to Variety, the Good News emcee filed the documents in a Harris County, Texas court on Tuesday (Aug. 24). She is seeking “emergency relief” from the court before this Friday so she can release a remix of BTS’ “Butter.” The Houston Hottie argued that blocking the release of this track will create “irreparable damage” to her career. However, Crawford believes the collaboration won’t be a good move for her career, although BTS is arguably the biggest K-pop band of all time.

“If [Megan] 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,” the document states. “Such irreparable injury to her personal goodwill and the silencing of her artistic expression in music cannot be compensated in the way of monetary damages. As such, [Megan] seeks emergency relief from this Court.”

“The release of new music from [Megan] is vital to maintain her status as a relatively new but still up and coming artist,” the filing continued. ”Absent immediate help from the Court, [Megan’s] art will be impacted, the release of the song derailed, and [Megan’s] goodwill, reputation, and overall career will suffer detrimental, undesirable, and irreversible harm.”

Last year, Megan sued Crawford and the label for blocking her from releasing new music. A Texas judge granted the “Savage” rapper a temporary restraining order, which prevented the label from attacking her on social media and allowed her to release music. The lawsuit also revealed that Megan was only receiving 40% of recording earnings and she had to use that money to pay engineers, mixers and artists who were featured on her songs.
