Megan Thee Stallion Drops LP #4

Following the complication involved with an anime sample she used on the track ‘Otaku Hot Girl,’ Megan Thee Stallion has just released her new album, ‘MEGAN.”

In an attempt to use sample, the now 29-year-old superstar rapper/writer requested approval from the production company of a particular anime show, but was ultimately forced to remove any mention of the program or its characters in order to keep it.

Taking to social media, the musician (born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete,) addressing the saga on Instagram Live this week, stating:

“I’m not talking bad because I’m very grateful.” “Y’all know how I told y’all I got an anime sample on my album? This has probably been the hardest song to try to have on my album — but like I said I’m not complaining ’cause I’m grateful.”  “Last night, we get an email. They said, ‘Actually I need you to take out the names of the characters that’s in the show.’ That is the whole song. That makes the song make sense.” “They said, You could either do this — you could have the music clearance, or you can have the name clearance.’ The music is what’s really important to me, but the names really tied it all together.”

Given the Herculean task of getting the music changed prior to the fast-approaching release date, Megan said “I really hope y’all think this s*** sound fire, ’cause I had to jump through eight million hoops to get this s*** Once y’all hear the sample, y’all are gonna know why they was giving us a hard time. “This is a very big production company so for them to even say yes — and I be cussing and s*** — like I said, I’m grateful. I’m not complaining. I really wanted this sample. I really wanted to do it, so I’m doing everything I got to do to keep it. But change the names? Change the names the day before the album out? That was nuts.”

Featuring a host of special guests – including Victoria Monet, Kyle Richh, GloRilla and UGK – the ‘MEGAN’ LP contains three previously released snake-themed singles, ‘Cobra’, ‘Hiss’ and ‘Boa’.
