BTS's "Butter" just got even better, thanks to Megan Thee Stallion's remix with the band. The song features everything we love about the original — including BTS's dreamy vocals — with a handful of incredible lines from Megan throughout. She even starts the song by rapping, "It's the Hot Girl Coach and BTS." We're especially obsessed with Megan's laugh after the group raps, "Got ARMY right behind us when we say so."
Following a legal battle with her label, the 26-year-old rapper was cleared to release her remix of the song on Tuesday. According to court documents, Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, submitted a petition against her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, and its CEO, Carl Crawford, alleging they were preventing her from releasing the song. "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," the document stated. "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, Pete seeks emergency relief from this Court."
Megan previously sued 1501 in March 2020 for allegedly preventing her from releasing her EP Suga. She was eventually granted a temporary restraining order, which she asked to be extended or supplemented with a new restraining order in the new court filing. A new hearing on Megan's restraining order has now been set for Sept. 10. Listen to the full track below.
