Yung Miami sat down with Complex for an interview and revealed what led to the City Girls — comprised of her and JT — breaking up. The Florida native says the pair have “grown up” and have moved on to other projects: “You know, like, we older now and [JT] was doing her own thing, she was on the West Coast, I’m in Miami doing my own thing, and I felt like naturally, when she doing her own thing, it just work for her. And when I’m doing my own thing, it work for me.”

The rapper says their last album’s performance was another factor in the pair’s decision. She says the duo were in different places and it permeated through the music. “I think when the City Girls album [RAW] just dropped, and it didn’t do too well, and we was just trying to do our press run, the whole rollout of the album was just so bad because we was just in two different spaces.”

“It Just wasn’t connecting,” Yung Miami says

In October 2023, the two dropped of their third and final album, RAW. It appears to have fallen short of their albums in the past, 2018’s Girl Code and 2020’s City On Lock. Yung Miami says the two just weren’t “connecting” as they did before. “It just wasn’t working no more. So I think we both were at a point where we were just like, we should probably just do our own sh*t.”

She added, “But that was the point for me.” Since parting ways, the pair have released several solo tracks and plan on individual projects. More recently, JT dropped off “Okay” and Miami teamed up with Skilla Baby for “CFWM.” Back in 2017, the pair burst onto the scene with their Period mixtape. They would later release a string of hit singles including, “Twerk,” “Act Up,” “Jobs,” and “P*ssy Talk.”
