Yung Miami Unveils Exciting “Yams” Era in a Dazzling Comeback Trail, Are You Ready for the Yams Revolution

The dynamic duo of City Girls, Yung Miami and JT, is gearing up for a remarkable transformation in 2024. While Yung Miami soared on the business front with her acclaimed podcast last year, the musical aspect faced a setback. Their album RAW didn’t quite hit the mark with sales, leaving fans and critics unimpressed. However, the tides are turning for JT and Yung Miami individually, especially with Yung Miami dropping the fire track “Sideways” over the weekend.

But that’s not all – Yung Miami is set to embrace a whole new era, and she teased it back in January with a cryptic tweet. “Welcome to the ‘Yams Era.’ I’m so excited for this era of my life; we’re about to have some FUN!!!” Fans are still decoding the meaning behind “Yams,” with some speculating it’s a play on how to pronounce Miami or exploring unique definitions on Urban Dictionary.

Regardless, Yung Miami seems to be fully embracing her roots and infusing it into everything she does. A month after hinting at this fresh approach, she dropped a tantalizing “Yams” trailer on Instagram. In the video, she discusses her comeback while showcasing glimpses of studio sessions and teasing a stylish ginger hairstyle. Yung Miami declared, “Welcome to the YAMs Era! The Yams Era is my Prime time! In the Yams, we do ginger hair…focus on ourselves…& get money! Yams is the new lingo… To my fans, The YAMS…this is the new us. Drop a 🍠 if you’re ready!”

Support poured in from fellow artists like JT, Saweetie, and more, flooding her comments with yam emojis and encouragement for this exciting new chapter.

The world is increasingly becoming more conscious of environmental impact over time. And from the metal straws of our drinks to the paper tote bags we carry, almost all essentials of daily life are moving towards sustainability. Now, even our final farewells are evolving. Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.

Biodegradable Urns for Various Purposes

Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:

  1. Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
  2. Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
  3. Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.

Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns

Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:

  1. Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
  2. Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
  3. Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
  4. Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.

A Sustainable and Compassionate Choice
