Missy Elliott was always the kid who showed up the entire school when it came to show and tell. No artist in hip-hop over the past two decades has had more inventive music videos or used their voice as a literal instrument the way she has. After returning during Katy Perry’s Super Bowl appearance, Missy returns with an official single, “WTF (Where They From)” featuring Pharrell. The bonus of getting the horn ready and body moving anthem is a visual directed by Missy and her good friend Dave Meyers.

Missy covers herself in mirrors, gets all futuristic and lets a marionette version of Pharrell and herself have a dance battle. “I’m so far ahead of y’all/ I’m on top of some stars,” she raps on “WTF (Where They From)”. Just know, Missy Elliott has returned to snatch wigs and pronounce it from the heaven’s that she’s one of the greatest gifts the medium has ever seen. Pass her a well deserved Vanguard award and watch the video for “WTF (Where They From)” below.
