If youve seen the Free JT jackets from Drakes In My Feelings video and wondered who JT is, let us explain.

Drakes video for his new track is set to drop today, which we know because he teased it on his Instagram Stories.

On Wednesday, he posted a picture showing a screenshot of two photos of Clair Huxtable from the Cosbys, along with the words In my feelings video tmrw.

But he also gave a snapshot of what fans can expect from the video – which is where JT comes in.

Drake shared another image, this time of a jacket, a top and denim shorts that had all been emblazoned with the words Free JT and images of JT.

But who is JT?

JT is the short name for Jatavia Johnson, who is a member of Miami rap duo City Girls.

City Girls are new to the music scene, having launched in January, and have already won support from fellow artists.

Jatavia is currently in prison for charges relating to felony identity theft and fraud changes and Drake is showing her his support by getting a number of the dancers in his video to wear the jackets and T-shirts.

Drake also sings the lyrics: J.T., do you love me? Are you riding? / Say youll never ever leave from beside me, in the song, again showing he is backing the 25-year-old artist.

JT is accused of using three different peoples credit cards between September 2016 and April 2017, racking up more than $1,000 (£765) in charges.

She was out on bail and due to surrender herself for a 24 month prison sentence on 25 June.

However, she managed to delay this by five days – and its all thanks to Drake in a roundabout way.

The City Girls were due to perform at the BET Awards in Los Angeles on 24 June so they asked the judge to consider the once in a lifetime opportunity that the Defendant had in front of her.

They also revealed that they wanted to make the most of Drakes cosign – his shout out to her in his track – as it would likely help raise their profile considerably.

Asking for a 30 day delay, her defence added: This is due to a recent cosign from Drake (other noticeable cosigns include Migos, DJ Khaled, Cardi B, Rick Ross and Trina).

It will take three weeks to do the work that needs to be done and then the Defendant can surrender as her first album and its promotion will be done. She can do her time knowing that upon her release her group will be ready to start their second album and tour.

She wasnt granted the 30 day extension but she was given until 30 June, allowing City Girls to perform at the BET Awards.

Johnsons lawyer declared: Since the sentencing, the Defendant and her two-girl music group has experienced a meteoric rise in stardom … The Defendant now has over 3 million views on YouTube and they have over one million streams across various platforms. The Defendant is a star.

On 30 June JT handed herself in to serve her sentence at the Federal Detention Center in Miami.

She wrote on Instagram at the time: Did more than I thought I could imagine in this short period of time out on bond. Now its time for me to knock this down & come back strong forever. Hold my baby down yall.

She also shared a video of her mouthing along to her lyrics, captioning it: Not worried about yall hoes!!!! My criminal past turn yo baby daddy on?.

JT isnt set to be released until 21 March 2020.

Its not just Drake who has shown JT support as other rappers have been showing her support by sporting Free JT clothing.

Despite JT going to prison, the City Girls still released the video for their debut track Sweet Tooth on 29 June, the day JT took herself to prison.

What is the In My Feelings or Kiki dance?

Drakes In My Feelings track is inspiring all sorts of dances (Picture: @BTS)

If you see someone randomly jumping out of a moving vehicle and dancing in the street, blame Drake.

Thanks to his track In My Feelings (and a YouTubers stunt which went viral), a new trend for a crazy dance has got people around the world hooked.

The dangerous trend, which is called the #InMyFeelings Challenge, sees drivers jumping out of moving vehicles and dancing in the street to Drakes In My Feelings while the passenger films the antics.

So risky is the viral craze, which is sometimes referred to as the #Kiki Challenge, that police and law enforcement officers have been warning fans against doing it.

Police Chief Joseph Solomon of Methuen, Massachusetts told CBS: Its only a matter of time before someone gets sucked into the wheels of the car or dragged or the driver who is recording it with their phone hits somebody crossing the street.

Connecticut State Police declared that doing the dance in this way could lead to a reckless endangerment charge if anyone is caught in the act.

And a warning was posted on the National Transportation Safety Boards Twitter feed last week.

The dance was introduced by online personality and comedian Shiggy.

He shared a video of himself dancing to In My Feelings on the day of the tracks release.:

It led to a number of copycats as fans cottoned onto the new craze, with celebrities including Will Smith and J-Hope doing the dance.

Amid all of the copycats, people soon began doing it while jumping from a crawling car and eventually they were attempting it in slightly faster moving cars.

YouTube user Liza Koshy shared a dangerous take on the challenge:

Drakes album Scorpion, which the track In My Feelings is from, was released on Sunday 29 July.

In My Feelings lyrics

Drake
Trap, TrapMoneyBenny
This shit got me in my feelings
Gotta be real with it, yup
Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say youll never ever leave from beside me
Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And Im down for you always
KB, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say youll never ever leave from beside me
Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And Im down for you always
Look, the new me is really still the real me
I swear you gotta feel me before they try and kill me
They gotta make some choices, they runnin out of options
Cause Ive been goin off and they dont know when its stoppin
And when you get to toppin, I see that youve been learnin
And when I take you shoppin you spend it like you earned it
And when you popped off on your ex he deserved it
I thought you were the one from the jump, that confirmed it
Trapmoneybenny
I buy you champagne but you love some Henny
From the block like you Jenny
I know you special, girl, cause I know too many
Resha, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say youll never ever leave from beside me
Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And Im down for you always
J.T., do you love me? Are you riding?
Say youll never ever leave from beside me
Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And Im down for you always
Two bad bitches and we kissin in the Wraith
Kissin-kissin in the Wraith, kiss-kissin in the Wraith
I need that black card and the code to the safe
Code to the safe, code-code to the safe-safe

Fuck that Netflix and chill, whats your net-net-net worth?
Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And Im down for you always

KB, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say youll never ever leave
From beside me, cause I want ya, and I
