pineappleCITI announced her new project neonBLUE, slated for release on February 22nd. Today, she shares the first video from the project, “I Need A Coupe” which premiered exclusively via PAPER Magazine.
“neonBLUE is a collection of thoughts, moments and ideas I’ve been experiencing over the past year. It’s my real life,” said pineappleCITI whose song “Rose Colored” became a viral hit as she was recovering from a near-fatal car accident in 2017.
“I told myself I’m going after everything I want in life; a successful music career, financial stability and even getting the girl of my dreams.”
pineappleCITI’s lyrics are authentic and boastful — celebrating her biggest gains and navigating major loss all the while never losing sight of her dreams and remaining true to self.

Inspired by NJ legends Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah and Wyclef Jean; pineappleCITI describes herself as an “old soul in a millennial’s body” and wants listeners to be inspired, motivated and driven to follow their dreams — stating, “If I can do it, they surely can too!”
