Earlier today, Missy Elliott surprised the world when she tweeted that she was going to be dropping a collection of new music tonight called Iconology. Features from the rapper have been rare over the years but bodies of work are even rarer.
The last time we got an actual project from her was when she released The Cookbook in 2005, making this her first in 14 years. In 2017, she released her single ‘I’m Better’ and then followed it up with a remix featuring Eve, Lil Kim and Trina but fans were left disappointed as she kind of disappeared again.
At midnight tonight I’m dropping a collection of new songs! Let’s #ThrowItBack to a time when music just felt good and made us want to dance! Sincerely, Dr. Melissa “Missy” Elliott #ICONOLOGY pic.twitter.com/rv2eVYGy1J
