Yung Miami has confirmed that the City Girls are no more, attributing the split to the disappointing reception of their third album, RAW, and diverging personal paths.

Relations between Yung Miami and her fellow City Girls member JT have fluctuated for months, but it now seems they’ve reached a permanent end. In a conversation with Complex, Yung Miami discussed the poor commercial performance of their final album, RAW, and how their personal and professional lives were pulling them apart.

“I think when the City Girls album dropped and it didn’t do too well and we was just like trying to do our press run. You know, the whole rollout of the album was just so bad because we were just in two different spaces,” she explained. “We’re older now and she was doing her own thing on the West Coast, I’m in Miami doing my own thing. And I felt like naturally, when she’s doing her own thing, it just works for her. And when I’m doing my own thing, it works for me. But when we get together as a group, it just wasn’t connecting, it just wasn’t working no more. I think we were both at a point where it was just like, we should probably just do our own shit. That was the point for me.”

The duo earlier blamed poor management for RAW’s underperformance, selling just 10,000 units in its first week and landing at No. 117 on the Billboard 200. In contrast, their 2020 album, City on Lock, debuted at No. 30, driven by hits like “Jobs” and “Pussy Talk” featuring Doja Cat.

JT echoed these sentiments during an interview on The Breakfast Club. “It’s tough times. You get what you put in, in this shit. And I feel like, collectively, we didn’t do what we had to do to promote the album,” she admitted. “But if you don’t go hard with promoting your shit, and putting it in people’s face, it’s like, of course it’s going to miss people.” She continued, “Right now, stunting ain’t cool, because people broke. I feel like we have a bad timing thing. I feel like our timing, and our management, is poor. We’ve got poor management, poor timing — like, it’s really never no strategy. We just out here, like, why the fuck are we at The Breakfast Club a week after our thing dropped?”

Since dropping RAW in October 2023, both Yung Miami and JT have ventured into solo projects. Their split was further fueled by a brief spat on social media arising from allegations of “sneak dissing.”

With both members pursuing solo endeavors, it appears the City Girls have officially closed this chapter. While their collaboration may be over, their individual careers continue to evolve.
