“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.

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.
