Missy Elliott on WTF video
Singer Missy Elliott made her official comeback to music with the release of her new song, Where They From (WTF), and the process was not an easy one.
The rapper, whose last album was 2005’s The Cookbook, wore a glass outfit in the video that injured her severely.
“We all came up with the glass outfit, which was the hardest thing to wear because it was really cut up glass so I was bleeding and everything!”she said in an interview with ID magazine.
“I was so agitated but I had to get it done. I was bloody and bloodied. There was blood everywhere!”
She explained that because it had been so long since she’d dropped something, she felt particularly pressured over the video.
“I knew that people know me for my videos and so the expectation from those who grew up on my music was high. My goodness. I swear to God, I felt like I sweated out my tracks the night before the video dropped! My weave was messed up waiting for this video to come out!”
