The rapstress took to Instagram to announce the track titled “No Bars.” It pays tribute to her friend Monica Suh, who passed away in a car crash and addresses her constant critics.
JT — born Jatavia Johnson —shared the single’s artwork and teased the topics she would cover. “B*tches always in my business,” she captioned the post.
She followed up with a clip from the music video wearing a black bikini in an empty pool as she posed for pics with a Free Willy floatie.
One fan commented, “Black Pamela Anderson vibes.” JT’s double D’s spilling out of her swimsuit top and her straight, banged wig definitely give bombshell energy.
She later posted a selfie, writing, “Pretty a** lips make these b*tch cop syringes. MAUH…… #Nobars out now!”
Singer, Normani, commented, “IT GIRL” and Influencer Dearra added, “the true definition of ‘when it’s your time it’s YOUR time.’ POP OFF baby”.
The Miami rapper shared her inspiration for making the tune along with more sexy pics in a carousel.
She wrote, “’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!” She added, “Not knowing me personally… I’d read the craziest things about myself & would want to scream but instead I went to the studio & popped my sh*t!”
The pint-sized powerhouse continued, “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!” JT continued. “No more hiding my love for music, I love music! I love my voice! I love poppin my sh*t.” She ended her message with a declaration, “It’s only ME VS. ANXIETY.”

The video opens with a dedication to her friend, Monica, “I’m in Paris, just like we talked about. So this one’s for you”, she says as she pours one out for Monica in front of the Eiffel Tower.
The visuals intensify from there as quick clips of JT’s lips, scenes of her rapping in what appears to be an old prison bathroom and fun with friends, fans and her partner in rap, Yung Miami, zip by.
She raps, “I’m low-key, b*tches f*ck with my anxiety/I’m prayed up, and I’m waitin’ on my rivalry. I’m the hype, nah, y’all ain’t gotta hype me/I’m that b*tch, give a f*ck who don’t like me.”
Check out the full “No Bars” video below.
It seems like her fans’ favorite line from the track is, “Doing all that wifey sh*t knowing he don’t f*ck with you.” They repeatedly quoted the bar in the replies.
