From The Vault: Missy Elliott – ‘Lose Control (ft. Ciara & Fatman Scoop)’

Published: Sunday 5th Jun 2011 by David

“Music makes you lose control”. It indeed does!

This week’s From The Vault is dance-floor filler, ‘Lose Control’ by Missy Elliott – who is joined by Ciara and Fatman Scoop. The high-energy track was released as the first single from Ms. Demeanour sixth studio album, ‘The Cookbook’ (2005).

After the touchdown that was ‘1, 2 Step’, Elliott reached out to Ciara for the 2nd round, resulting in an equally fantastic song (if not, better).

The production on the track (helmed by Elliott herself) gives a nod to the basics of Hip-Hop music by using an Afrika Bambaataa-like beat, all the while staying very “modern” and boasting a near-perfect balance between “Urban” and “Pop”. It’s also important to signify that ‘Control’, with its Hip-Hop meets Electronica composition, was precursory of the Urban-Dance craze that is raging until this day.

With its award-winning video showcasing the dynamic duo’s performing skills, this right here is an absolute high-point of each of the ladies careers.

What’s more, with their artistic chemistry being a match made in heaven (see: ‘Work’, their third collabo), we are convinced the world would love to lose more control with those two. We sure know we would.

Bring on Round IV!

    MISSY AND CICI

    In my opinion this was Missy’s best song. I love Ciara’s dancing in it.

    I honestly do this this Ciara, but I loved the Work/LoveSexMagic Ciara as well. That Ciara was crazy and the dancing and music was more versatile and diverse, but it’s so sad that Fantasy Ride flopped because both Love S** Magic and Work should’ve been worldwide #1 hits, especially Work, that should’ve dominated the summer of 2009. I really do hope Ciara makes a strong comeback with her 5th album because she is very talented. She’s a decent singer, her vocals have really improved since Goodies, her dancing and performances have improved and her music has gotten better with each album.

    I love the choreography in the dress scene. Ciara looks so fly!

    She needs to bring this type of creativity into the new album, this was out of this world.

  20. Thedimplepuppet June 5, 2011

    I love the peek-a-boo s** kitten Ciara where would tease us aka flirt and make the audience beg for more.. Now she’s a full blown stripper where she blends in with every other pop-tart. Less is more people, all the best to you Ciara.

  21. GOD/JESUS June 5, 2011

    I gave you so much Mrs. Ciara and lost control 😉

    Ciara in her PRIME! this was the ciara that could not be F***** with.. 100% ciara.. she lost her identity along the way…. but this is a classic ..Ciara is the Queen Of Dance… and she should be awarded and recognized the same way beyonce and janet were

  24. BeyStan4life June 5, 2011

    YAS @ Missy and Ciara slaying in this video. This was my s*** when it first came out and I remember dancing to this in our school talent show. I still watch this video from time to time.

    Missy will remain the REAL QUEEN OF RAP *side eye’s lil kim* and all shall deal.

    I’m still waiting for Missy and Ciara to do another collab.

  32. Jordan June 5, 2011

    Ciara needs to drop a whole CD full of 90s booty-popping music. Like forreal. Sample all those old ass songs and bring that fast ass s*** back lol. If anybody can do it, she can. No one is doing that now and it would be “original.”
