The rap duo City Girls has been producing songs together since 2017, although many people first heard them on Drake’s hit song “In My Feelings” in 2018. They both sang on the single and later released a remixed version. City Girls were ecstatic to be a part of the song at the time, but they later disclosed that Drake cut their verses short.
The Carlos Watson Show recently met down with JT and Yung Miami for a discussion. Even though their complete verses didn’t make the final cut, JT mentioned how being approached to feature on “In My Feelings” was how they knew they were “stars”:
“When Drake called, it was a big secret we had to hold in for like a month. I remember when he did his feature with Lil Baby and I was like, ‘Damn, we made it. Drake never finna call our ass.’ We didn’t ever know if the song was to make the album or not, we just knew he wanted us to be on the song. We both did verses. They called us back and let us know it was going to be on the album. But, it wasn’t a whole verse. Drake chopped our ass off. He was probably like, ‘Ya’ll hoes not ready for full verses yet but I’m going to give you a shot. We thankful for that and that’s when we realized [we made it].”
For what it’s worth, Drake eventually agreed to let City Girls release their entire verses on the “In My Feelings” remix.
