Missy Elliott Is Ready to Make America Dance Again With New Music

We are revisting this October 2018 article in tribute to Elliott, who won the 2019 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at last night’s VMA ceremony, where she put on a spectacular performance.

<p> Missy Elliott</p>

Missy Elliott is one of the most successful female rappers of all time, crafting hits that make everyone from your mom to your man to your bestie cut a rug.

The Virginia native is soon returning with more heat, and she took to Twitter this weekend to share a snippet of new song, “Cool Off,” captioning the clip, “2019 Let me get yall asses DANCING AGAIN!” Take a listen below.

Three days earlier, the MC, singer and songwriter shared that she has been hesitant to release new music for fear young fans wouldn’t embrace her sound, but she soon realized that making the music that wants is more important than chasing the sound of the moment.

“For so long I was hesitant to put out music in fear no 1 would get it because people said music has changed & my sound been so different but NOW IM LIKE hey🤷🏾‍♀️ bump it make music that feels good to me😉let me Get y’all asses dancing again🙌🏾

Elliott was last heard on the remix to Ciara’s summertime smash, “Level Up.”
