Missy Elliott has returned to pop music in a way that suggests she never left. Her newest song produced and featured on by Pharrell Williams, is not only on point for today’s fun loving rug cutters, but also a touching tribute to the Missy of old. In saying that line I am reminded that there may not be such a thing as the Missy of old, as she seems to of not aged one bit like a vampire or like a good bottle of wine, gotten better with age. Benjamin Button that you bro? All jokes aside, I hear so much music and influence in this song, in the beat especially. There is no denying Pharrell knows his shit. Below is a handy 'The Making Of WTF' infographic and after that a list of influences that could be added into a big mixing bowl with the end result being WTF (Where they from).
Some songs, some dot points, some style tips. You get it.
