Missy Elliott – WTF (Where They From) (Video) [ft. Pharrell Williams]
The long awaited return of Missy Elliott is upon us as she drops her brand new single “WTF (Where They From)” and its accompanying music video.
“WTF (Where They From)” itself is a booty-shaking, bouncy hip-hop anthem with Missy Elliott showing who’s the queen of rap with her playful delivery and catchy flow. Pharrell Williams helms the rattling, drum-heavy production and also lends a verse on the track. “WTF” is a boisterous return to the music scene for Missy to show who’s boss but we’ll have to wait and see what dent it can make on the glossy, dance-pop dominated charts.
The accompanying music video, co-directed by Missy and frequent collaborator Dave Meyers (the man behind classic “Work It,” Get Ur Freak On” and “Pass That Dutch”) is fire in its own right! The energetic visual takes Missy’s futuristic vibe to the streets and is chocked full of choreography and exuberant outfits to match the thrilling, dance-heavy track. Pharrell makes his cameo in puppet form to spit his rapid-fire verse.
In addition to Pharrell, Missy Elliott has been in the studio with Timbaland working on her first album since 2005’s The Cookbook. Watch Missy’s comeback with “WTF (Where They From)” below:
