It's been a decade since she released her last album, and now Missy Elliott is finally gifting her fans with now just a new song, but a video to go with it.
The song, WTF (Where They From) features Pharrell Williams in the video and has blown up on social media with people praising her return-and the video itself for being as cutting edge as they've come to expect from the 44-year-old rapper.
Many, celebrities and other fans alike, are simply just happy the rapper has proven she isn't going anywhere, while others praised the video for being a groundbreaking piece of art that will introduce the rapper to younger generations.

Seeing a Black woman embrace sci-fi, special effects and the weird so authentically was a HUGE deal for Black girls in the 90's, forward. — Shannon Miller (@Phunky_Brewster) November 12, 2015
She did all this WITHOUT shaming the twerking video vixen. There was no "this or that." There was both and they SLAYED TOGETHER. #WTFMissy — Shannon Miller (@Phunky_Brewster) November 12, 2015
And while she embraced new artistry, she's always remained true to her aesthetic. That's hard as hell, y'all, especially in music. #WTFMissy
