Missy Elliott is back — and she couldn’t have come at a better time according to some.
Elliott dropped her highly anticipated new video, “WTF (Where They From),” early Thursday morning.
Produced by Pharrell Williams, the new jam is Missy at her best. The beat is as off-kilter and futuristically funky as could be expected from a track with her name on it, and the lyrics are a barrage of tongue-twisty, nonsensical punches.
And the video is as crazy as anything she did back in the 90’s, with the lyrics warning everybody whose hot today.
“I’m so far ‘head of y’all / Man, I’m on top of the stars / I don’t care [who] none of y’all are … you best go rewrite ya bars,” she raps before retreating in a hive to sleep.
