Speaking about the subject via Instagram Live on Sunday, Megan told her followers that she signed the deal when she was young and did not fully understand the conditions she was agreeing to. She has subsequently signed a management deal with Roc Nation, who she claims have attempted to renogtiate the 1501 Entertainment deal but made no progress.

“Soon as I said, ‘I want to renegotiate my contract,’ everything went left,” Megan said on Instagram. “It just all went bad. It all went left. So now they’re tellin’ a bitch that she can’t drop no music.”
