“I Will Keep Showing Up & Showing Out Even In The Face Of Adversity,” Megan Thee Stallion said after receiving the Trailblazer Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
The 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards were held in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, and there were some major hitters in attendance as they were honored for their musical talents.
Megan Thee Stallion, the H-Town Hottie, was one of the artists who took the stage not only to perform but also to be recognized for their efforts.
Meg took the stage to perform “Sweetest Pie,” her new collaboration with Dua Lipa. Megan began by spitting a few bars from her song “Megan’s Piano” before launching into the new track.
Kelly Rowland entered the stage shortly after Megan’s performance to present her with the “Trailblazer Award.” “I want to say thank you to the women who blazed the route before me, because without them, there would be no me,” Megan stated during her award speech.
As she thanked her fans, Megan said, “With my platform, I will continue to be a voice for the voiceless.” I will continue to battle for all of the injustices that black women and men face. And, even in the face of adversity, I’ll keep turning up and showing out.

Megan Thee Stallion responded to news that her record label, 1501 Entertainment, was suing her for the release of her last album, “Something For The Hotties,” on Twitter the next day.
The album was supposed to satisfy her contract with the label, and she filed paperwork in February claiming that it had done so.
Megan’s record label, on the other hand, said that the project “is made up of 21 recordings and includes spoken interlude tracks on which Megan does not appear, as well as a lot of songs that have already been released.”
The album must contain “new master recordings of studio performances,” they assert. Carl Crawford, the label’s CEO, is asking for revenue from Megan’s collaborations, sponsorships, endorsements, and side engagements, in addition to having the last say on what is an eligible album to complete her contract.
Megan took to social media to address the situation with Carl Crawford.
