This year has been a tremendous year for me…I am humbled and grateful. THANK YOU for allowing me to smell the roses. You, my fans, and God are the reason I am here and have celebrated every milestone with me! So, I have a SURPRISE for you… let’s continue the celebration at midnight tonight…I’m dropping a collection of new songs! Let’s #ThrowItBack to a time when music just felt good and made us want to dance! Sincerely, Dr. Melissa “Missy” Elliott #Iconology

The recent Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, who dropped the album like a thief in the night, also blessed us with a vibrant dance-crazed video for her “Throw It Back” track, which is sure to spark some epic social media challenges. And if there’s no twerk-worthy choreography, breathtaking cinematography and some good ol’ fashioned double dutchin’, is it really a Missy original? We think not.
Don’t look for another MISSY cause there’ll be no nother one! #THROWITBACK video is OUT! 🔥🙌🏾🤗❤️ttps://missyelliott.lnk.to/ThrowItBackVideoTA pic.twitter.com/DWl7ubK2CI

It was only right that the impending MTV Video Vanguard recipient team up with her musical partner-in-crime, Timbaland, along with Wili Hendrix to produce tracks like “Cool Off,” “DripDemeanor” (feat. Sum1), and “Why I Still Love You” (also in acapella). Listen to her full album here and check out her new music video!
