City Girls' Yung Miami Talks Black Girl Magic, Cardi B & More At ESSENCE Fest
ICYMI, City Girls have been blowing up! From their feature on Drake's "In My Feelings" to releasing two albums last year, Period and Girl Code, to collabing with the likes of Cardi B, all eyes are on the Miami rap duo of Yung Miami and JT.
The Recording Academy sat down with Yung Miami backstage at the 25th ESSENCE Festival to get the inside scoop on the group, including some insight on her creative process with JT.
"When we get in the studio, our songs come from conversations we've had," Yung Miami said. "I say something and she'll be like, 'you need to turn that into a lyric.'... it's just whatever mood we're in."
She also revealed what it was like working with GRAMMY-winning rap superstar Cardi B, who is featured on "Twerk" from Girl Code.
"It was everything I imagined. Working with Cardi B was like working with one of my best friends, like somebody I knew all my life, and we just got in the studio and made a song."
We also talked to Yung Miami about how it felt to be part of ESSENCE this year, what Black girl magic means to her and more.
