Missy Elliott Talks Her Return To Music

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Considering Missy Elliott had been away from the music scene for the past couple years, fans are hoping that the release of her newest single “WTF” and upcoming album means this comeback is a long term thing. Everyone is happy Missy is back, but as far as her musical hiatus goes, the rapper simply said she “needed a break.”

Missy left fans hanging after releasing two very low-key tracks with partner Timbaland in 2012. She re-emerged again, joining Katy Perry on the halftime stage at the the 2015 Super Bowl. And after her surprise performance, there were even rumors of new works coming soon. Now it’s clear those rumors were in fact truth. This month the artist dropped a new single, video, and announced the release of her upcoming project.

And she opened up to i-D magazine concerning her comeback, new single and the pressures of coming back better than ever. She also reveals that we should be giving a shout out to Pharrell for her long awaited return. Check out excerpts from Missy’s interview with i-D.
