It's about to be another City Girls summer.

The return of the City Girls is imminent and their new snippet indicates that they'll have the summer in a chokehold, once again. The Miami-based duo returned to the fold on Saturday with a preview of new music that will serve as an anthem for the coming months. Their Instagram page shared an official snippet of the song, which is rumored to be titled, “Lay It Down.” JT and Yung Miami initially previewed the record nearly a year ago. 

With an official snippet, they could be ramping up for a brand new album in the near future. In the three years window since releasing City On Lock, the “Act Up” rappers shared a handful of singles, and several previews of new City Girls music, without a concrete timeline of when we could expect a new project after pushing it back. As a July 2022 release date approached – the same day as Beyoncé’s Renaissance – Yung Miami said they needed to delay its release, citing “issues.” Some felt as though it was because City Girls didn’t want to compete with Bey, which JT denied, tweeting, “​​Our album NOT finished!!!! TF.”

The City Girls Rev Up For Summer 2023 On New Snippet

Prior to releasing a new snippet of music, City Girls indicated that they’ll be coming through with new heat for the summer. Just before the Caresha, Please host’s acting debut on BMF, JT, and Yung Miami returned to the stage for Rolling Loud California with new music to perform. Many became excited over the possibilities of a City Girls summer, especially after taking some time apart. The release of the new City Girls snippet also aligns with Yung Miami’s February announcement that we could expect a new project in “Spring, Summer.”

Their return to the fold should debunk any speculation that JT and Yung Miami will be splitting up. Though JT confirmed that she doesn’t see her beefing with Yung Miami, she explained that she hopes they can continue to have a prosperous career together as the City Girls. However, JT confirmed that there isn’t any possibility of that happening during an interview with Angie Martinez. “I do not see beefin’ and breaking up with the City Girls at all. Ever! That’s just stupid. I hope we don’t get too busy,” she said. Check out the new City Girls snippet above and sound off with your thoughts in the comments.
