City Girls were supposed to drop their third studio album on July 29, but fans will have to wait a little bit longer to hear new music from the Miami, Florida duo.
On Tuesday (July 19), Yung Miami hopped on Instagram Live to chat with her devoted fans when one of them asked about the status of the new album. According to Caresha, “issues” got in the way of the planned release.
“The album was supposed to drop July 29, but it’s not dropping because we had some issues — not issues, but you know, when you dropping an album, you have to make sure everything is good,” she explained.

JT’s frustration may have come from fans claiming the City Girls’ label, Quality Control, pushed the album back to avoid a showdown with Beyoncé, who will be dropping her seventh studio album Renaissance on July 29.
City Girls’ last album, City On Lock, arrived in 2020 and featured appearances from Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Lil Durk and Yo Gotti. The project debuted at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 while earning a 3.7 out of 5 score from HipHopDX.
Outside of the studio, JT and Yung Miami are currently gearing up to launch their new HBO Max series Rap Sh!t with Issa Rae. The Hip Hop-themed comedy premieres Thursday (July 21), with eight episodes lined up for the first season. Check out the trailer below.
