Woah, Missy Elliott Dropped This Hot New Track AND Its Music Video
Missy Elliott's back and better than ever!
The rapper floored fans on Friday by surprise-releasing a new single "I'm Better" (featuring Lamb) and an electric music video to accompany it.
The vid spotlights Missy's dance moves famously highlight in the videos for her aughts-era hits like "Work It" and "Get Ur Freak On," and it's obvious that hasn't lost any of her magic.
She slays in the music video with in black lipstick and a leather jacket embellished with plenty of gold studs, rhinestones, and long red feathers on the shoulders as she raps. "Yeah, he got bands in the Bando / Missy got dudes in Orlando / Plus, I got cars that he paying for / Man, I be too much to handle."
The song, which is pretty much guaranteed to become a weekend club banger, is Elliott's first since 2015's "WTF (Where They From)," which also featured her first music video in seven years.
While the 45-year-old has kept busy producing music and even making a surprise comeback alongside Katy Perry at 2015's Super Bowl halftime show, the artist has not released a new album in 10 years since 2005's The Cookbook.

If you can't get enough of Missy from this one track, you're in luck: She also teased a new documentary about her life and music career. She says in the trailer, "It's never about making a hot record. I can do that in my sleep. But visually I have to see what I'm going to do with that record when I perform it."
