Missy Elliott Set To Release New Project Ahead Of Her Video Vanguard Award
Missy Elliott may be receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the 2019 VMA’s, but that didn’t stop her from releasing a new project!
Get ready to turn your speakers all the way up, and put that thing down flip it and reverse it as Missy Elliott is ready to release a new project!
On Thursday, the iconic and legendary rapper-producer-songwriter took to Instagram to share that she would be releasing a new “collection of new songs” called Iconology at midnight.
“Let’s #ThrowItBack to a time when music just felt good and made us want to dance,” Missy wrote on Instagram.
This is major as the last album The Cookbook was released in 2005. This album couldn’t be more appropriate as she is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
This award is presented at the MTV Video Music Awards to music performers, recognizing accomplishments in music and film, and she has earned that title.
This year alone, Missy has been awarded an honorary doctorate at the Berklee College of Music and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Her performance at Monday nights award show will be one for the books as we can now speculate that she will be performing some of her new hits from her Iconology collection!
Take a look at her Instagram post below and let us know what you think!
