MISSY ELLIOTT IS BECOMING QUITE THE SUPER BOWL MUSIC STAPLE, RELEASES NEW TRACK 

At last year’s Super Bowl, Missy Elliott surprised the world (or at least 111 million people) when she jumped on stage with Katy Perry. The special guest spot launched the artist back into the collective music mind, stirred some Missy Misdemeanor nostalgia, which resulted in an immediate 282% sales spike in her songs.

Not too long after that, the rapper released a new collaboration, “WTF Where They From,” featuring Pharrell Williams. The music video accompanying was pure Missy gold: plenty of choreography, a dance wunderkind, and over-the-top outfits. And she hasn’t stopped there.

This year, the singer is cashing in on the international audience by dropping a new track, “Pep Rally.” The song was announced during an Amazon Echo commercial, in which Elliott was featured. The football-centric track comes with its own dance:

“It goes left foot, it goes right foot

It goes left foot, it goes right foot

Catch the wall, touch them toes

Turn around like it's gold

Back it up, back it up, so you know you got control”

With instructions like that, there is little doubt an impressive new music video is soon to follow. Listen to the track, above.
