Yung Miami and JT of City Girls recently touched on their appearance on Drake‘s famed “In My Feelings” single, revealing that they actually sent him verses to use for the cut.

Speaking on The Carlos Watson Show, the two rappers shared their initial excitement for the collaboration and what exactly happened to their lines. “When Drake called, it was a big secret we had to hold in for like a month,” they said. “I remember when he did his feature with Lil Baby and I was like, ‘Damn, we made it. Drake ain’t never finna call our a*s.’ We didn’t ever know if the song was gon’ make the album or not, we just knew that he wanted us to be on the song.”

“We both did verses,” they further confirmed, continuing, “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 a*s off. He was probably like, ‘Y’all hoes not ready for full verses yet but I’ma give y’all a shot.’ We thankful for that and that’s when we realized [we made it].”

Despite the fact that “In My Feelings” didn’t feature Yung Miami and JT’s verses, City Girls are credited as songwriters and provided uncredited additional vocals. The Scorpion cut hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks, and City Girls eventually dropped their remix of the song with their verses in 2018.

Take a look at the pair’s interview above.
