City Girls’ JT Drops ‘No Bars’: Look + Listen

Releasing her first new solo single since “JT First Day Out (2010,) City Girls’ JT dropped the video for “No Bars.”

In honor of Monica Suh, her friend who passed away, the video starts at night with JT in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris as she addresses her deceased pal with “I’m in Paris, just like we talked about,” adding: “So this one’s for you” as she pours one out from a bottle of wine for Monica. The visual moves in for a closeup of the musician’s lips in a bathroom and what appears to be an old prison with blue bars that match her hair. The footage features shots of JT with her friends and fans, and a montage of photos and video with her City Girls partner Yung Miami. 

“I’m low-key, bitches fuck with my anxiety/I’m prayed up, and I’m waitin’ on my rivalry,” she raps. “I’m the hype, nah, y’all ain’t gotta hype me/I’m that bitch, give a fuck who don’t like me.”

Taking to her Instagram account, JT shared the inspiration behind the song with:

“’No Bars’ is a freestyle I made in the studio when I was having one of those days, at the time like most of the time ppl were doubting me & questioning why I wasn’t as visual and vocal as others! Not knowing me personally…,” she wrote. “I’d read the craziest things about myself & would want to scream but instead I went to the studio & popped my shit!:” “I know most of y’all have heard it but for those who haven’t I hope this freestyle finds you in a great place & is a start of the respect I deserve in music!” she continued. “No more hiding my love for music, I love music! I love my voice! I love poppin my shit.” She concluded with: “It’s only ME VS. ANXIETY.”

‘No Bars’ follows 2019’s “JT First Day Out,” which addressed her release from prison after serving nearly two years on credit card fraud charges. Earlier in the week, the artist announced No Bars Reform to help other previously incarcerated women rehabilitate into society by assisting with resources such as therapy, job placement, social services, and housing, per the website.
