WHAT IT IS: JT and Yung Miami are brash, raw and uncensored. The Miami locals pride themselves on representing the next generation of females to speak out confidently, and with as much swagger as the boys. Committed to their hood roots, they actively insist that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. With more than 489m overall streams, City Girls speak for city girls and city boys everywhere, bluntly making their own rules in deciding what subjects should and shouldn’t be considered taboo. Their genuineness caught the ear of Drake, who recruited them for his 10-week chart-topping song, “In My Feelings.” There’s also their “Twerk” f/Cardi B, which entered the Hot 100 upon release, placing City Girls among the likes of Nicki Minaj and Cardi as the only women in rap to have a 2018 track in the Hot 100. Although JT’s currently serving her sentence for credit- card fraud, the pair worked hard to bank a lot of material before she went in. As Yung Miami states, “It’s a minor setback for a major comeback.” The duo has still managed to out-chart, outsell and outwork their competition. At press time, City Girls were #1 on the Emerging Artists Chart with the #1 Most Added song at Rhythm radio. Genius marketing and business skills—straight from the red-hot label Quality Control’s CEOs, Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas—have kept the girls grounded and surrounded by an incredible home team.
