Over the weekend, City Girls, AKA JT and Yung Miami released their new album RAW. The title stands for “Real A*s Wh*res” and the hard-hitting, sexually charged songs throughout the album live up to that title. While there are plenty of fans praising the album, that hasn’t translated into a great sales total. The album is projected to land somewhere between 6k and 8k sales in its first week. Those numbers are pretty disappointing for a pair whose previous album debuted in the top 30 of the Billboard 200.
Now, other fans are thinking they have the explanation. On in particular claimed that one half of the duo needs to go solo. “I love City Girls and don’t hate me for saying this.. But I think JT needs to take the Offset route,” their tweet reads. By “the Offset route” she means breaking off as a solo artist. Just this week the former Migos rapper debuted his feature-packed new album Set It Off in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 with impressive first week sales figures. Clearly, there are some fans out there claiming that JT could sell more albums as a solo artist than as a member of City Girls. Check out the tweet below.

Should JT Go Solo Instead?
Fans in the comments debated if a solo career would fix the issue. “Nah what happened was they needed more promo, they really didn’t have a song out that made you anticipate the album. Honestly they should have pushed it back,” one of the top comments reads. “Y’all want JT TO GO SOLO SO BAD BUT AINT GONE BUY HER SH*TTTT WHEN IT DROP,” another suggests.
JT may put the fan theories to test sooner rather than later. In an interview she did last month she mentioned specifically that she wanted to pursue solo work following the release of RAW. Do you think JT would sell more albums if she broke out as a solo artist? Let us know in the comment section below.
