On August 27th, the rapper filed for emergency relief to get the song out as scheduled. According to the court docs, it was stated that. ” If Megan is prohibited from releasing the feature track this Friday, her music career will suffer irreparable damage, including devastating her relationships with her fans and with other recording artists in the music industry, including BTS,” And lucky for her, the court ruled in her favor, allowing her to release the piece.
The rapper was ecstatic and immediately jumped on Twitter, showing her excitement and sending her love by Tweeting, “Y’all don’t even understand how excited I am,”
The track dropped on the 27th, and it caused a commotion all around the world. Fans were happy to see this remix of ‘Butter.’ As many versions of it were released priorly. The song stuck to its original sequence and structure. But, what gave it an unexpected wow factor was the rapper’s verses which swiftly managed to wow us all.
