Watch: Missy Elliot’s New Video For ‘WTF’ Is Perfection
When Missy Elliot came out to share the stage with Katy Perry at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, surprisingly, there were a lot of people had no idea who she was. To be fair, Missy hasn’t released a music video in three years and resonates more with Gen X as opposed to today’s millennial fueled youth culture who dominates social media.
However, that all changed today when Missy dropped a new video for her bangin’ single, “WTF (Where They From),” featuring musical mastermind Pharrell Williams. It doesn’t matter that she’s been out of the spotlight for so long, “WTF” is visually alluring without relying on overt sex appeal to keep you engaged. Tapping into hip-hop’s fun use of street style and incorporating creative choreography that moves from the street, to hover boards, to cardboard boxes, it’s a comeback of mass proportion that will leave you shaking your head at it’s ultimate radness. Just one more thing to be thankful for this year.
