City Girls are an all-female hip-hop group made up of Yung Miami and JT. The members’ real names are Caresha Romeka Brownlee and Jatavia Shakara Johnson, respectively. The two started making music together in Miami, Florida, the city that inspired Caresha’s performing alias.
They first gained recognition after singing on Drake’s smash hit “In My Feelings,” and garnered even more popularity after the “Twerkulator” challenge went viral on TikTok when a dancer named Layla Muhammad choreographed a dance for their unreleased track.
Even though City Girls didn’t get credited for their collaboration with the Toronto Rapper, the appearance was enough to get them the attention of Quality Control Music, the Atlanta-based label headed by Kevin Lee and Pierre Thomas. They’re currently labelmates with Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, Kollision, and others.
City Girls released their first mixtape, Period, in 2018, and they followed it up with an album, Girl Code, the same year.
