As part of receiving the annual Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, Missy Elliott was honoured with a tribute to her from many of her friends, collaborators and admirers, including Pharrell Williams, Lizzo, Ciara, Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, watch the tribute above.
Missy Elliott has returned with a new song called “I’m Better.” The song features Lamb. Missy’s last proper studio album, The Cookbook, was released in 2005. Directed by Missy Elliott and Dave Meyers, the clip, produced and featuring a verse by Lamb, builds on Elliott’s future-forward off-kilter aesthetic.
Missy Elliott also released a new video teasing an upcoming documentary featuring Pharrell, Busta & Co. showing a slew of her admirers describing the musician. “She came out and just completely blew people away,” Pharrell said. The doc is set for release later this year.
The VH1 Hip-Hop Honors returned last month to pay homage to the leading ladies of Hip Hop in an two hour special called “All Hail The Queens.” Along with Lil’ Kim, Queen Latifah, and others, the Honors celebrated Missy Elliott with tribute performances from Trina, Eve, Remy Ma, and more.
