Even though they have been around for quite some time, podcasts started growing in popularity and their download figures have reached a record-breaking number only recently. With their availability on different popular platforms like YouTube and Spotify, there has been a huge increase in the number of podcast listeners.
Caresha Please is one such very popular music podcast that is hosted by Yung Miami. Yung is no outsider to the entertainment industry. She is part of the well-known hip-hop duo City Girls. The other member of the duo is Jatavia Shakara Johnson, better known by her stage name JT.
‘Caresha Please’ had been making headlines since the launch of the program in June due to the nature of the program.
The host of the show Yung Miami does not hold back in shooting some direct and very open suggestions at her guests, which sometimes put them in a tough spot. But it is these unfiltered questions and open discussion about topics that are not talked about on other common talk shows that make Caresha Please a popular show.
In 2022, Yung Miami made a deal with REVOLT in telecasting her show and it had been running on the platform since June 2022. REVOLT is an American digital cable television network that focuses on new events from the music industry primarily.
The channel was founded by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Andy Schuon and it was launched on October 21, 2013. ‘Caresha Please’ was included in the program list of REVOLT in 2022 and had been working in the association ever since.
The viewership that the program gets is off the charts and Yung Miami seems to be doing well at her job. Her conversation with the first guest on the show Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, it’s the first time that she was interviewing a person, but she seems to be good at it and was able to satisfy her listeners.
The very first episode of the show Caresha Please was broadcasted in June 2022. The program kicked off with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, the co-founder of the channel as Yung Miami’s first guest.
One of the major things that attracted a lot of the audience for the show was a statement by Yung Miami in her first episode which said “my show where we do things real raw and uncut” and she was able to deliver what she promised to her audience.
The show’s ‘no-filter’ questions that other talk shows might think twice before asking and people love Caresha Please for this raw nature.
The first-ever installment of the show which featured Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs as the guest gained very wide popularity. The video has over 5 million views, which encouraged Yung Miami to continue with the show and bring in her second guest Kevin Gates. Gates is a popular rapper and entrepreneur.
The viewership of the program went up by around 3 million, with the video gaining a viewer count of 8 million.
As the popularity of the show increased, Yung Miami brought more celebrities to her show. The third episode of the show was a special one for Yung Miami as the episode featured her co-artist and the other member of her duo City Girls, Jatavia Shakara Johnson, better known as JT. In the same episode, popular American rapper Saucy Santana also joined Yung as a co-host.
From there on, different celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion, Saweetie, Latto, G Herbo, and Trina appeared on the show. While the show seems to run smoothly, Yung Miami has expressed her concerns about it and her thoughts to cancel the show.
It was in December 2002 that Yung Miami shared a tweet with her fans in which she mentioned her thoughts about canceling her popular show ‘Caresha Please.’ According to her, the main reason that drove her towards the thought was that celebrities were afraid to come to her show.
She added that apparently, many celebrities were scared of the ‘smoke.’ The most recent episode of the shoe featured popular American rapper Katrina Laverne Taylor, better known by her professional name Trina. The video was poised on the YouTube channel on January 20 and it had over 200k views within 4 hours.
