Missy Elliott Is Back in the Building When We Need Her the Most

With all that’s going on in the world, Missy Elliott came through like a beam of technicolor light to bless us all with many a gift on Friday (Jan. 27, 2017).

Elliott released a new music video to accompany her new single “I’m Better” featuring Lamb, which is the first bit of solo material that she’s put out since “Pep Rally” in 2016.

To quote Saturday Night Live’s Stefon, this music video “has everything”:

Elliott also released a preview of an upcoming documentary that explores her legacy featuring commentary from colleagues such as Pharrell and Busta Rhymes.

“She came out and just completely blew people away,” Pharrell boasts of Elliott’s talent.

The documentary is set to release later in 2017. Watch the clip in the video below and watch the “I’m Better” music video at the top of the page.
