It's been an undoubtedly hectic and exciting few weeks for Megan Thee Stallion. The Houston-born performer unleashed her new single "Hiss," for one, notably reigniting her longwinded feud with Nicki Minaj. The song has been a massive success and is currently on pace for a No. 1 debut. The success of "Hiss" isn't the only thing the hitmaker has to be grateful for, however. Recently, Meg also announced that she's signed a unique new deal with Warner Music Group.

The new deal will allow her to maintain her independence as an artist while the label provides her with “distribution and marketing resources" to propel her forward. “This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter of my life and career,” Megan Thee Stallion told Rolling Stone. "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.”
