(Album Review)-@citifrresh Spilled Pineapples


New Jersey’s pineappleCITI urges listeners to take caution after pressing play on her nine track album, “Spilled Pineapples”. The project carries features from Fourtee, Branden Jerrel and Dougie F and incorporates witty punchlines, braggadocios lyricism and melodically delivered vocals. We really enjoyed the body of work so GYBU decided to write up a review to speak about a few of our favorite cuts from “Spilled Pineapples”, found below.

“Rose Colored” – The first song found on the project is spewing with those catchy punchlines we mentioned in the review intro. Lines like “Booby Schmurda with the bars/ like a nigga caught a charge” and a rapid delivery that would have most artists gasping for breath perfectly display just why CITI should be viewed as a solid contender. The piano plucks and heavy trap bass are a perfect fit for her demanding voice. This approach is heard on other records and this serves as a good example of what to expect for the course of the production.

“After Work (Song For You)” – This song was one I wasn’t quite expecting to hear from CITI. Taking a direct 180 from songs like “Rose Colored”, she puts her singing abilities to the test and passes with a straight A. This production is very subtle and when the chorus kicks in, you’ll immediately think of R&B. This is the style of song tailored for the ladies, something to set the mood. Who hasn’t had a long day at work before? To get thru the day, you fantasize about meeting up with bae after getting off. I was really impressed with this, CITI can really carry a melody. Aside from the smash hit #Pepsi, “After Work” gives off a strong commercial appeal, shouldn’t be long until it is picked up by radio.

“Bigger Ego” – Of all the songs found on the album, “Bigger Ego” is the ideal song that showcases what CITI is best known for, one hell of a delivery. As the beat changes, she effortlessly switches up flows to match the sound. The instrumental is a darker one, something that illustrates the new sound of Jersey. Based off this one song alone, there’s no question CITI has one hell of an ego, a sure hit among the streets.

“Spilled Pineapples” is a release geared towards trappers and in some instances, for the females. However, CITI does present a tough flow and well constructed wordplay that may find some of the biggest Hip Hop heads becoming closet fans. She keeps the guest features at a minimum and places only strong songs on the tracklisting with no filler material. A solid showing from the rising New Jersey artist. Keep an eye open for more music from pineappleCITI in the coming times.
