Missy Elliott’s “WTF” Video Is Exactly What Hip-Hop’s Been Missing

Missy Elliott has released her first video in three years, with her latest single, “WTF (Where They From).”  The song features fellow Virginia native, Pharrell Williams, though he doesn’t appear physically, they bring a puppet element to include him in the visual.  The video is directed by long time Missy collaborated, Dave Meyers.

Hopefully, the new track is the first sign of a new album on the way. Her last announced project, Block Party, spawned singles “Best Best” and “Shake Your Pom Pom” in 2008 and “Triple Threat” and “9th Inning” in 2012, but it never materialized. However, it feels like there’s a stronger push this time around to make things happen, particularly after Missy performed at the Super Bowl with Katy Perry and later performing at Essence Festival this past Summer.

While many have called this a comeback, Missy never voluntarily stepped away from music.  We detailed her battle with Graves’ Disease in a story earlier.
