Hot off of an incredible summer capping off an incredible year, Missy Elliott took to social media to commemorate the 17th anniversary of one of her biggest hits.
“17 YEARS AGO I released my song ‘Work It’” she wrote on Instagram with fire emojis. “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY… & I AIN’T DONE YET… I tup ym gnaht nwod pilf ti & esrever ti!!!!”
Missy performed the song during her highly-praised MTV VMA medley, as part of her acceptance of the 2019 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. For the performance, her superstar dancer Alyson Stoner made an appearance that shocked fans and made headlines.
Stoner, now 26, appeared on Ellen earlier this week, where she discussed her joy of being able to work with Missy again.
”It was absolutely perfect,” she explained of the experience. “First of all, obviously, credit goes to Missy for allowing me to participate and honor her and recreate that timeless moment.”
