It’s no secret that Yung Miami’s lingo tends to catch on quickly both on the internet and in real life. One of the latest phrases she’s been using is “acting bad,” or “real bad,” ultimately inspiring her to team up with JT, Diddy, and Fabolous, to create what some are already calling the “song of the summer.” On Friday (May 26) the collaborators dropped off “Act Bad,” along with a wildly raunchy music video that sees the New York native dancing naked during an evening of wild partying.
“It’s going to be an ‘Act Bad’ summer,” Sean Combs declared in an Instagram post the day before dropping off his latest banger. As Hypebeast reports, the father of six has previously defined the phrase as “being free, enjoying yourself, letting go, and not giving a f*ck.” If nothing else, today’s Kid Art-directed visual perfectly emulates all of that, with the Bad Boy founder getting even wilder for the camera than his Florida-based friends.
Of course, Yung Miami and JT have their moments too, taking turns rapping the chorus for the camera while twerking and showing off their bodacious bodies. “Act Bad” marks the partner in rhyme’s first release of 2023, following their promise from a few months ago that this summer will mark the arrival of new music from the City Girls. They previously previewed a title of their own, called “Piñata” during Rolling Loud California, but opted to drop off their sure-fire hit with Diddy first.
Interestingly, the new joint effort comes just days after Caresha clapped back at a Twitter troll asking about upcoming releases from them. It remains unclear when they plan to give us more, but it likely won’t be much longer seeing as the three-year anniversary of City On Lock is quickly approaching. Do you have plans to “Act Bad” along with Diddy, the City Girls, and Fabolous this summer? Let us know in the comments, and tap into the NSFW music video on YouTube above.
