Biography

Irreverent rap duo City Girls had no ambition beyond recording a diss track in 2017 and by the end of the next year signed with Quality Control, released their charting first two albums with Period and Girl Code, and contributed to Drake's number one pop hit "In My Feelings." Friends since their early teens, the Miami, Florida-based Yung Miami (Caresha Brownlee, originally from Opa-locka) and JT (Jatavia Shakara Johnson, via Carol City and Liberty City) were motivated to record following an altercation with some individuals. The two got in touch with friend and producer MajorNine, from whom they purchased a beat -- one that utilized "My Neck, My Back," the raunchy 2002 hit by stylistic inspiration Khia -- and in August 2017 recorded "Fu*k Dat Ni**a." The track, which targeted jealous onlookers and broke suitors, was promoted by Yung Miami on Instagram and in clubs. By the end of the year, "Fu*k Dat Ni**a" appeared on Quality Control: Control the Streets, Vol. 1, a compilation that debuted at the top of Billboard's R&B/hip-hop chart and went to number five on the Billboard 200. The track's official video, featuring an appearance from Trina, Yung Miami's godmother, appeared the following January. In May 2018, Yung Miami and JT released their first album, Period. Led by the single "Where the Bag At," the LP hit Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Two months later, the duo's global profile sky rocketed with songwriting and vocal contributions to Drake's "In My Feelings," a number one pop hit in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and several other territories. City Girls' second full-length, Girl Code, followed in November and entered the Billboard 200 at number 63. ~ Andy Kellman
