Rapper Missy Elliott is one of the most successful female hip-hop artists in history. Elliott has bagged no fewer than five Grammy awards and has sold over 30 million records in the U.S. alone. It is some 10-years since Elliott released her last album The Cookbook, but even today Missy remains the only female rapper to score six platinum certified albums. Elliott was renowned for creating diverse and engaging videos to support her releases, her video for the single "Lose Control" was even a Grammy winner.
In recent weeks, speculation has mounted that Elliott is on the comeback trail. The Daily Mail recently reported that Missy had been spotted filming a video for an unreleased track in Los Angeles. As a result it was believed that Elliott is back recording and is set to break her decade long musical silence by releasing a new album. Missy chose last night's Monday Night Football show to tease a snippet of a new release titled "WTF [Where They From]."
