“Working with Kim Petras was such a vibe – when she walked in her spirit was so bubbly and cute, and she just gives this excited energy so when you work with her you just get instantly excited,” says JT of the City Girls. “We want to thank her for doing this with us and giving us our first pop record!”
City Girls’ Yung Miami seconds the vibe of Kim Petras, saying “She was so sweet, when I met her I loved her as a being. It was so fun, I think her energy was great. It was one of the most funnest videos that I’ve shot in a while. She fucked it up, she was a vibe!”
“I’m the biggest fan of City Girls,” says Kim. “It was so fun making the “Flashy” video with them and collaborating on a song together. I think it’s such a fun pop song and it’s a perfect mix of both of our artistic identities. I’m so proud to be a part of this with them!”
“Flashy (featuring Kim Petras)” marks the first time the Miami-raised City Girls and the Grammy-winning pop star collaborate. Directed by Jenzar, life is good for the trio, as Petras sings: “Stylin’, shinin’ / I’m so flawless like my diamonds / I’m flashy / Big bags, price tags / You know all I wear is name brands / I’m flashy.”
“City Girls’ aesthetic perfectly complements the sugary sweet pop melodies of their new track,” writes Billboard. Indeed, dripping with designer the trio are literally living the high life in a plane that also serves as a walk-in closet. Shimmery as a disco ball, Yung Miami, JT and Kim Petras are as flashy and flawless as their diamonds.
RAW marks City Girls’ third authentic and straight-talking studio album, their first in three years. Features include Kim Petras, Lil Durk, Muni Long, Juicy J and Usher. In a teaser video posted to their socials on Saturday (Oct. 14), JT and Yung Miami describe their upcoming album as “serious a–, freestylin’ cypher a–rap” and “scammin’, trickin’ p—y rap.”
