Megan Thee Stallion and Warner Music Group announced a brand new agreement that allows the rapper to maintain her status as an independent artist.

The unique deal sees the Houston Hottie utilizing the distribution and resources of Warner Music while still retaining full ownership of her masters and publishing. Meg will release her music through her independent music and entertainment entity, Hot Girl Productions, and simultaneously work with Warner Music and its worldwide affiliates. The rapper will also have full creative control of her music releases, and can bring the artists she’s signed to Hot Girl Productions into Warner Music.

“This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter of my life and career,” Megan said in a statement. “I’m really focused on building an empire and growing as an entrepreneur, so I’m proud to take this next step in my journey and work with Max Lousada and the entire Warner Music Group team in this new capacity. I know we’re going to create history together.”

“Meg is not just a superstar,” WMG Recorded Music CEO Max Lousada added. “She’s an artistic force and a mogul in the making – authentic and unapologetic in defining her own unique place in the cultural landscape. So many relate to her remarkable story and have witnessed her come into her power on her own terms. At Warner, we’re creating an environment where original talents can explore both their creativity and entrepreneurialism, while building long-term careers. Following on her success with 300, we’re excited to continue our journey with Meg through this dynamic new partnership, with our global teams, infrastructure, and expertise supporting her every step of the way.”

“Megan continues to be an absolute trailblazer,” Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez stated. “This new chapter with Warner Music Group will shift the landscape in the music industry and empower other independent artists to follow in her footsteps and claim their power. It’s also a testament to Max’s ability to reimagine the relationships that major music companies can engage in with independent artists.”
