Megan had sued 1501 in February claiming breach of contract, although the label countersued, arguing that the compilation album did not count as a full album.

The label claims that its contract states that each new album must have at least 12, “new master recordings of studio performances” and Something For Thee Hotties does not.

The label also claims full approval of all tracks and did not endorse anything on Something For Thee Hotties, which debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in late October 2021.
