The rapper hasn’t released any new material since ‘WTF (Where They From)’ in November 2015.
Missy Elliot is back and she wants you to know ‘I’m Better’.
The rapper dropped new single and video ‘I’m Better’ featuring Lamb on Friday, while also teasing fans with a promo for her as-yet-untilled documentary.
The video for 'I'm Better' features Elliot and a posse of back-up dancers, dancing in a variety of locations including a warehouse and even a pool. Sharing the video on Twitter, the rapper told fans: “ATTENTION!! NEW MISSY single & video #ImBetter ft @daRealLamb FIYAH!available EVERYWHERE! Watch NOW.”
Elliot also shared a trailer for an as-yet-untilled, upcoming documentary which featured friends of the rapper including Pharrell and Busta Rhymes talking about her decades long career and influence on hip hop. "It's never just a record for me," Elliott says in the documentary. "It's never just 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.”
Elliot hasn’t released an album since The Cookbook in 2005, but she did return with a new single in November 2015, ‘WTF (Where They From)’ featuring Pharrell Williams. Earlier that year she had made a surprise appearance at the Super Bowl, where Katy Perry was the halftime performer.
Speaking to Billboard in 2015, Missy revealed why she’s still cautious about releasing new music. "I have to be very careful," she said. ”It's different now. People are quick to be like, 'You're irrelevant, you're a flop, you're washed up.’"
