Teyana Taylor Announces ‘Farewell Tour’

Teyana Taylor Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour

Last December, Teyana Taylor announced she would be retiring from music. Sharing her Spotify streams from the year 2020, she took to Instagram that despite appreciating her fans, the industry lacked to recognize following the release of her third studio project, The Album.

“I ain’t gone front in times of feeling super underappreciated as a artist, receiving little to no real push from the machine, constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked, I mean the list on and on lol…”

Putting the nail in the coffin, Taylor has announced her farewell tour, “Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour.” Starting Nov. 7 in San Francisco, the 12-date tour features stops in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, and New York before wrapping Nov. 30 in Atlanta.

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard…. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer,” Teyana told her fans. “Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell…”

Tickets for Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour go on sale Friday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m.

Megan Thee Stallion Goes to Court, Alleges Her Label 1501 is Blocking Release of ‘Butter’ Remix with BTS

Published

UPDATE: According to TMZ, a judge has ruled that Megan Thee Stallion is clear to release the remix of BTS’ “Butter.”  

Megan Thee Stallion is going at it again with her label 1501 Certified Entertainment, and its owner, former MLB star Carl Crawford.

Megan claims that 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford are trying to block her from releasing a new song with the K-Pop group, BTS. According to court documents filed in Harris County, Texas on Tuesday, the Good News rapper is set to appear on the remix of BTS’ hit single, “Butter,” which is scheduled to drop this Friday, Aug. 25. However, TMZ reports that 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford are trying everything to butcher this smooth release.

Megan Thee Stallion believes if released, “Butter” could help her reach and expand to an international fanbase, due to BTS’ massive brand. But, 1501 Certified Entertainment disagrees and has stated that this move wouldn’t be good for her career. The Houston native says that this response is a cover-up and the label reportedly trying to get Megan to pay 6-figures and force her to pay them to sign off on the song’s release.

Last March, Megan Thee Stallion sued 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford and won a court order that prohibited the label and Crawford from blocking the release of new music. Today, Megan is saying they have violated that order.

A few weeks ago, Tory Lanez made a surprise appearance at Rolling Loud: Miami during DaBaby’s set to perform their joint single, “Skat.” Less than an hour after Megan Thee Stallion got off stage, it was alleged that Tory Lanez had violated a court order to stay away from the Houston rapper.

On Aug. 14 , it was confirmed that Tory Lanez did indeed violate the court order following the July 2020 shooting that left Megan Thee Stallion shot in the foot and the Toronto native was subjected to appear in court.

According to TMZ, Tory Lanez appeared in Los Angeles District Court where he was ordered to pay a higher bail amount in order to stay out of jail while his criminal case is pending. The judge also modified his bail conditions and prohibited Tory from attending any event where Megan Thee Stallion is scheduled to perform. The judge stated if the issue comes up again, he will be remanded into custody.

Tory Lanez bail has increased from  $190k to $250k and has already posted bond.
