Missy Elliott has been featured on a handful of songs in recent years, but “WTF (Where They From)” marks her first solo track since about 2012. The long-awaited single, which features an assist from Pharrell, sees the MC dishing bars in her signature flow — slick, stylish, and hyperactive all at the same time.
The track’s accompanying video is similarly feverish, and finds the rapper and her dance crew busting out some insane choreographed moves in various surreal settings (at one point she and Pharrell even become marionettes). The cherry on top of the whole thing? All the flashy, futuristic outfits.
It’s hard to believe Missy’s still got the music video game on lock, pushing the medium forward, but here she is nearly two decades after she first rose to prominence and she hasn’t missed a beat. Check out the Missy and Dave Meyers-directed video for “WTF (Where They From)” below.
