While the rest of us are off enjoying what's left of the summer this weekend and celebrating Labor Day, Missy Elliott will be putting in some work. According to her frequent collaborator Timbaland, Missy is poised to release not one, but two new singles to the masses this weekend in an effort to officially mark her comeback to the rap game. The singles, set to be called "9th Inning" and "Triple Threat," are the first two songs from her latest project, Block Party, which is her first since 2005's The Cookbook.
"oh snapp yall," Timbo tweeted earlier this week. "my sista @MissyElliott is dropping her singles #9thinning and #triplethreat labor day weekend. watch it world we backk!!!"
We couldn't be any happier to hear it. Although Missy has been in the news lately a lot with regards to the posthumous Aaliyah album that Drake is reportedly set to helm, it's been a long time since Missy has dropped new material. So, we're excited to see what she's got left in the tank. Aren't you? If not, check out the 5 Reasons We're Glad Missy Elliott Is Releasing Two New Singles This Weekend. It's been a long time, Missy. But, we're glad to hear that you're finally back.
