Missy Is Joined By Pharrell In Another Game-Changing Video

Missy Elliott’s long-awaited return to her solo career has finally arrived, and immediately out of the gate, she is reminding Heads why she continues to be one of the most musically and visually stimulating artists in history. The songwriter, MC, and producer hasn’t released an album since 2005’s The Cookbook, and the decade away from the spotlight has given her fans a massive appetite for the Grammy-winner’s forthcoming album, the details of which remain heavily guarded. One can only surmise her seventh studio effort is on its way soon, as today she dropped a unapologetically Missy video, with all of the avant-garde characteristics we’ve come to expect from her genius.

“WTF (Where They From)” is a Pharrell-produced dancefloor banger that is sure to be making its way into every DJs playlist as we speak. The video is a glittery, colorful, Afrofuturistic piece of visual art featuring awe-inspiring dancers, ostentatious costumes, marianettes, and hoverboard-based choreography. It’s bananas, it’s Hip-Hop, and it’s simply Missy. Press play.
