Rap icon Missy Elliott breaks YouTube with her latest video

Rap icon Missy Elliott breaks YouTube with her latest video

Do you remember Missy Elliott? After a huge run of success in the ’90s and early ’00s, she took a break from the mic to rain fabulousness onto others’ careers as a producer. Then at last year’s Super Bowl, she was, in this writer’s opinion, the best part of the Katy Perry halftime show (sorry, Left Shark).

Now, it seems the Internet has recognized the blessing that is her latest single, ‘WTF (Where They From),’ by pouring in 10 million views in the last three days — making it one of the most watched YouTube videos in the past 24 hours. And how could it not be?

Ever been to a tech festival?

It’s got the cutting edge dancing of her classic music videos like ‘Get Ur Freak On.’

She looks like a star — mostly because she’s covered from head to toe in reflective material.

She literally has two faces.

And she has her own puppet.

Sure, the queen of YouTube is still Adele, who is still making people sob and call up their exes. But you’ve gotta love how much Miss E So Addictive has knocked it out of the park. Nearly ten years, and nothing’s changed.
