WTF Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott’s latest music video 'WTF' (Where They From) has been released on YouTube from her upcoming 7th album. It has been 10 years since Missy’s last studio album, 'The Cookbook' was released but the hit maker is back with a vengeance.

The Grammy winning rapper turned her attention to producing when she was diagnosed with a disorder known as Graves' disease, which at times left her unable to write. Missy opened up about her diagnosis on Sway In The Morning in 2012 claiming,

"For me, when you say you have to take a radiation pill you think you’re really finna be out of here…You have to go through your eyes changing, your hair falling out and skin changing. Everything for me was traumatic."

With a career spanning over 20 years, 'WTF' will be Missy’s first new single since 2012. Despite this, Missy has featured on numerous songs since her hiatus, including 'Without Me' with Kelly Rowland and Fantasia in 2013. As well performing a medley of her hits at the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show with Katy Perry.

Fans are now ecstatic to see one of the first ladies of hip-hop get back to her roots and return on full form. 'WTF' features Pharrell Williams, fresh choreography and the unforgettably cinematic scenes Missy is known for.
