Megan had sued 1501 in February claiming she had fulfilled the contract, though the label filed a countersuit, claiming the compilation album doesn’t count as a full album.

The label claims her contract states any new album must have at least 12, ‘new master recordings of studio performances,’ and Something For Thee Hotties doesn’t.

The label also claims they have full approval over all the tracks and they didn’t approve anything in Something For Thee Hotties, which debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 album charts in late October 2021.
