The 28-year-old rapper began working as an independent artist in 2023 when she split from former label

Her new deal with WMG will allow Megan to

remain independent

, while having access to WMG's global services.

Megan will release all future recordings through

Hot Girl Productions

— her independent music and entertainment company — while working with WMG.

Megan said in a statement: "This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter of my life and career. 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 [WMG Recorded Music CEO]

Max Lousada

and the entire Warner Music Group team in this new capacity. I know we're going to create history together."

Lousada said: "Meg is not just a superstar.

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."

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."
