Last we heard from Missy Elliott, she was stealing the spotlight from Katy Perry during the Super Bowl halftime show—and lighting up Spotify. This morning, she gave us a gift: her first video in seven years. 

“WTF (Where They From)” stars Pharrell Williams, as well as some very funky marionette dancers and stunning choreography. The song was teased in a Monday Night Football commercial last month, and Elliott even joined Instagram on Wednesday to celebrate the new jam. 

I can’t wait for the whole world to see my new video tomorrow. 9am we bout to take off to another planet🚀👽 u ready? LETSGO!🔥 #WTFMissy #FirstLook

The single points to the long-awaited arrival of a new studio album, her first since 2005’s The Cookbook. We could not be more ready.
