The wait is over. Over a decade since her last album, Missy Elliott makes her long-awaited return with her new single “WTF (Where They From)” featuring Pharrell Williams.
In the dance-heavy clip, co-directed by Missy and Dave Meyers (responsible for videos like “Work It” and “Lose Control”), Missy brings back the magic that’s been missing for all these years. The hip-hop icon shimmers in a mirrored tracksuit while dancing in an alleyway and sports a Biggie beanie in the subway station.
Dance duo Les Twins make cameos and Pharrell appears as a marionette. Missy shows off her adidas collection and throws back to “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” video by dancing in a plastic tracksuit, and even busts out some moves on a hoverboard.
In addition to Pharrell, she has been in the studio with Timbaland working on her first album since 2005’s The Cookbook.
