Missy Elliott Is Back, Unleashes “WTF (Where They From)”


As promised on Twitter earlier this month, and teased earlier this week on TV and her brand-new Instagram, Elliott released “WTF (Where They From)” this morning—her first single in three years, after 2012’s iTunes exclusives “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat,” as well as a series of singles meant for her since-scrapped album, Block Party.

The futuristic music video was co-directed by Elliott and frequent collaborator Dave Meyers, whose work includes the iconic “Work It”; “Pass That Dutch”; and “Lose Control.” The music video for “WTF” is similarly driven by choreography, and features Elliott dressed is a mirror-adorned ensemble, breakdancing marionettes, and a Hoverboard Segway.

Welcome back, Missy!
