Timbaland On New Missy Elliott Album: “We Have The Game Changer”

Published: Tuesday 29th Jul 2014 by Sam

It’s the album the music industry has been awaiting with bated breath. And while no release date has been set for Missy Elliott‘s much anticipated comeback, it hasn’t quelled excitement for the set – her first since 2005’s ‘The Cookbook’.

Today saw her longtime collaborator Timbaland whip up more buzz in an interview with Rolling Stone.

See what the hitmaker had to say about how Elliott’s LP is shaping up after the jump…

Excerpt via Rolling Stone:

“It’s coming. It’s on her. She got the first single, it’s just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there,” he says, making the sound of a gun firing.

Asked what that bullet sounds like, Timbaland replied: “It’s something you ain’t never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future.”

Exciting times!

Having been teased with ‘9th Inning’ and ‘Triple Threat’ in 2012, things have been relatively quiet on the Missy front sans a few feature spots. At least there’s confirmation that an album is still being baked in the studio. Here’s hoping it’s served up sooner rather than later, as the industry could do with the lofty levels of innovative Elliott brings to the table.

    I’m here for Missy. She’s a Hiphop innovator and has changed the game in so many ways. I hope she will pick up where she left off.

    I just hope her return shuts down the biggest fraud in Hiphop since Vanilla Ice, Iggy Azalea. Nicki and Azaelia cannot do it apparently.

      Thank you, Sam! Nicki fame has been VERY disappointing!!! ALL of her so material is ASS! LOL

  3. Beysus July 29, 2014

    Wooo!!! Go Missy!!!!! And Azealia too!!!

  4. Metzo July 29, 2014

    OMG! YESSSUHHH!! it’s been awhile. The real MC is back! Move aside Nicki.

    I hope the Beyonce collab that they’ve been talking about actually happens!

  5. Brian310 July 29, 2014

    Missy need to stop playing and give the people what they want.

  6. FutureCIARA July 29, 2014

    Well if it sounds “Today” Then they need to hurry and release it like before Fall. I love Mossy and I know her album will slay. But everybody think they have a “Game Changer” but when shot hits the fan and it flops they be looking dumb. Just release it Slaydemeanor Elliott and let the people decide if it’s the Future/Game Changer

    Either way I’m here for it, Tim balance is a beast in the mixer!

  7. tits mcgee July 29, 2014

    Come with it, Missy!

  8. Truth tea (take a sip) July 29, 2014

    Missy is probably the only 90s female rapper who can make a mainstream comeback tbh.
    She was featured on a couple hits last year. People will always like her.
    Great day for female rap!
    Go Missy, Azealia, Nicki and Iggy.

    • PeaceMaker July 29, 2014

      And Lauryn too

  9. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY “2 On” NOW)) July 29, 2014

    Missy is BACK! I’ve been literally waiting for this moment.

    She is honestly the only one that can come back and do well because fans are interested in what she is selling all the time.

    HASHTAG: #WelcomeBackMissy #LEGEND

    She is one of my all time favorites. Love u miss e

  12. Mark111 July 29, 2014

    Blah blah. I love em both, but they been saying this for the past 2 years. People are acting like long waiting fans, but didn’t even buy her last two song last year.

    • Amanda July 30, 2014

      Personally speaking, I don’t buy just singles of artists I love (Missy is one of them – the other is Janet), I buy the whole friggin’ album!!!

  13. HOWYOULIKEIT July 29, 2014

    Missy please come back and end Nicki’s career. She is such a fraud and gimmick

  14. Will You Support? July 29, 2014

    Did anyone support the singles she put out last year, Triple Threat and 9th Inning? They were bangers but did not receive enough support. So stop begging for a Missy album unless you plan to create a street team to promote the album. Everybody doesn’t follow Twitter or Facebook for information. Are you willing to work hard OUTSIDE of social media to help promote the album? If not, Missy is doing the right thing by keeping her heat.

    • Absolved July 30, 2014

      Did SHE support them? All she did was put them out, did two or three open-ended radio interviews that didn’t reveal much about a new album. She didn’t even bother to make videos for them…and videos was always Missy’s claim-to-fame.

      People kill me with the “y’all don’t even support…” BS. There’s only so much fans can do. It’s the job of the artist, record label and manager to create enough buzz to the general public interested. They didn’t do that, so the songs went no where.

    I am BEYOND ready!!!

  16. SongbirdSurpremeCarey July 29, 2014

    I will forever LOVE missy.

  17. I.D. July 30, 2014

    Game changer? Isn’t that what they said about Triple Threat and 9th Inning?

  18. Realest July 30, 2014

    Missy has always been a game changer and will ways be known as such. Always and forever. It went from the pioneers of rap being like “the boys” (MC Lyte, Queen Latifah) to the extra feminine gangster Barbie chicks rocking labels and high fashion (Lil Kim) to missy with her avant guarde crazy style. Those are game changers when you bring something that NOBODY has done before. Been a while since we had one of those *cough cough*

  19. Humpday July 30, 2014

    Missy’s last 2 singles sucked and flopped. Y’all always act so excited when artists drop new music but don’t support #fakers

  20. Amanda July 30, 2014

    Man, I hope this album DOES FINALLY DROP before the year’s out!!! I’m a little long time Missy fan (since her very first album in ’97) and, I’ve been waiting a long damn time for a Missy/Timbaland album (she does her BEST work with him – even though I don’t like his ass lol).
