Missy Elliott & Pharrell’s “WTF (Where They From)” Video Is Perfect.

Missy has been producing innovative music videos for decades now, and her latest for “WTF (Where They From)” keeps the rapper on trend with out there concepts and over the top costumes. The 44-year-old legend’s first visual in seven years is a co-directorial effort from Missy and “Get Ur Freak On” helmer Dave Meyers, who’s done six of Misdemeanor’s last eight videos. (Side note: It’s been more than a decade since her last record, July ’05’s The Cookbook.) “WTF” features Missy as a human disco ball, Pharrell in marionette form (that’s one way to handle someone not having time to hit the video shoot) and magician-style outfit changes. Directed by Dave Meyers and Missy herself, the video shows Missy dancing in all types of venues and gear, from a disco ball looking fit, to marionette dolls jiggling around to the beat.

Movie-ready graffiti credits, a dope young dancer in a DOPE hat, Missy and her backup dancers in BIGGIE beanies (lotta headwear here), fire lipstick game, flawless choreography—this one’s got literally everything. It’s been ten years since she dropped her last album (The Cookbook) and three years since she dropped her last solo record (Timbaland-produced “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat”).

Her surprise performance at the Super Bowl halftime show in February seemed like the beginning of a comeback from Misdemeanor Elliott… watch “WTF” and keep your eye out for more to come.
