Missy Elliott has been pretty low key as of late, except for her milestone moments of accepting some pretty prestigious awards such as the doctorate from Berklee College of Music. A few weeks back, however, she and Lizzo teamed up for a fire track dubbed "Tempo" that simply begs to be repeated before heading out for a night.
The latest on the "Lose Control" music maker is that she's finished working on a project of her own that she's been working on "since last year." In the clip below, you can see Missy vibing out to Soul II Soul's "Keep On Movin'" clearly feeling all kinds of excited about the unnamed project. "I just finished a long project I been working on since last year & this my mood “Keep On Movin” I’m bout to show yall I’m on some next ish😅🤮🤮🥶👽💣🔥🙌🏾🙌🏾," she captioned the image.
We're ready when you are, Missy.
Before the new year, Missy was nominated for a spot in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, while she didn't end up winning, she did speak on the importance of her nomination.
"I hope it opens the door so people will be able to see that they [female songwriters and producers] do exist out there. I was talking to Queen Latifah the other day, saying it’s so crazy how people don’t know that there was a Patrice Rushen, who did a lot of her own stuff; an Angela Winbush … so many before me that people aren’t aware of," she said. "If I [win], I’ll have the biggest party. And if I don’t, I’ll still have a big party because I’m just grateful, and it sparks the conversation for someone that comes after me."
