The duo recorded the track 5 different times in their cousin’s studio for free, before finally finding the version that they promoted.
The City Girls released their debut studio song but just as the song dropped, JT was arrested for credit card fraud. So while she was dealing with that, Yung Miami was forced to promote the song solo. She used Instagram and the local city’s club to get the song heard.
The buzz from their song started to get them booked for local shows at clubs such as Heads or Tails and 5Five. At their first show, there was a fight outside and a lot of chaos but they finally got inside people knew their song word for word and they had the club packed. JT was locked up for a short period while the song began to blow up and she almost lost sight of their vision.
When JT was released, The City Girls recorded for their debut track and released it in the following year, even getting Trina and DJ Khaled in the music video.
