Missy Elliott New Song and Video: WTF (Where They From) Featuring Pharrell!
After Missy Elliot’s primetime Superbowl performance a few months back, many die hard Misdemeanor fans have been wondering exactly when the veteran and highly recognized Queen of Hip-Hop would be making an official return. Well fans got exactly what they’ve been waiting for and never thought they would get as the “Work It” evangelist made the official announcement on Twitter early Thursday morning, We’re live here u go!!!! wrote Missy, accompanied with a link to her new song, WTF (Where They From).
Directed alongside her longtime friend Dave Meyers, the video presents a futuristic yet surprisingly familiar Missy Elliott, the same one that we’ve all come to bob our heads with, pick up fashion tips from, and typically “lose control” too. Perhaps it was the chemistry of the Meyers Elliott duo that brought back a familiar spark with the two collaborating on some of the artist’s biggest past hits including 2001’s “Get Ur Freak On,” 2001’s “One Minute Man,”2002’s “Work It,” 2003’s “Gossip Folks,” 2003’s “Pass That Dutch,” 2005’s “Lose Control,” 2006’s “We Run This” and 2008’s “Ching-a-Ling/Shake Your Pom Pom.” Outfitted in a collection of edgy street style looks including oversized jerseys, slouchy trousers, futuristic sunglasses, and Missy’s signature bling adorned attired, we’re once again reminded of what made the artist one of the most influential style icons of the late 90s ; early 00’s.
It appears that Missy still has all of her signature dance moves as well. The multi-talented artist doesn’t make us wait long before picking up right where she left off with moves that look way to easy, one of the many talents of Missy. Of course it wouldn’t be a Missy Elliott video if she simply danced and rapped, expect a few surprises along the way including some Missy and Pharrell inspired mannequins and larger than life trippy sets that once again push the notion of hip hop a bit farther. Thank You Missy, we’re happy to have you back!
