Last week, Megan Thee Stallion released her first project since taking to social media bout issues at the 1501 Certified Entertainment label that she’s signed to. This ended up being her ‘Suga‘ EP. The Houston rapper originally said two weeks ago that they weren’t letting her release any new music but ended up getting a temporary restraining order which has since been extended for her to put out the music she wanted.
Suga contains nine tracks with features from Kehlani and Gunna. Among the fan-favorites on this project are “Savage” and “Captain Hook.” It was also led by the “B.I.T.C.H” single which samples 2Pac’s “Ratha Be Ya N*gga” record from 1996. The first week sales are officially in and according to Hits Daily Double, Megan only reached 43,882 units. This is surprising considering the fact that she’s been a superstar since early last year. Lil Uzi Vert occupied the top of the Billboard 200 chart with 310,832 units for his ‘Eternal Atake‘ album which finally released after almost two years of obstacles.
Many thought that Suga was Megan’s debut album but she has since clarified that it’s an EP. She simply wanted to give fans some new material but the debut album is on the way. That’s not officially finished yet though. At the same time, she will still have to deal with label issues at 1501 and their founder, Carl Crawford, who is also a former MLB All-Star. He has since taken to court to say that their contract states that Megan can’t sue the label if they have disputes, according to Bossip. He wants her lawsuit to be decided by a private arbitrator. We will see how this all unfolds this spring and if Megan will be able to release her highly-anticipated debut album.
