Two years ago, PineappleCITI was in a fatal car accident. Now, the critically acclaimed songwriter and rising hip-hop artist out of Newark has been striving to make 2019 her year.

A while ago, the Jersey native released her 10-track debut album, neonBLUEfeaturing production by Clinton Sparks,Fre$h,Keyz, Bravo, Open Doors and Project Peters. CITI’s penmanship is a blend of clever yet swanky bars and energyzing melodies.

neonBLUE encapsulates Pineapple’s life experiences and thoughts told through an authentic lens of desire (“Who”, “Sauce (Interlude), redemption (“Blue”, “The One”), manifestation (“I Need A Coupe”, “Iced Out”) and determination (“Beast Coast”) with seamless transitions in between.

CITI’s 30-minute project offers motivating messages and personal insight into a strong, intersectional artist who is thankful for life and never looking back. Catch Pineapple at SXSW this week.
