From The Vault: Missy Elliott & Ciara Blaze #BETAwards With ‘Lose Control’

Published: Sunday 28th Jun 2015 by Joe

Another year, another explosive BET Awards . Tonight, the biggest names in Urban music will be in the house to give the world yet another amazing show.

Though we presented you our Top 15 BET Awards moments yesterday, we wanted to keep this one for this week’s From The Vault – Missy Elliott, Ciara and Fatman Scoop‘s showing at the event in 2005 is our pick.

‘Control’ was the first single from ‘The Cookbook’, Elliott’s sixth LP. It was produced by the artist and reunited her with her ‘1, 2 Step’ collaborator Ciara. Hype-man Fatman Scoop was added to the mix to bring that unique party-anthem vibe that he has mastered through the years.

It was a hit for the trio, peaking at #3 on the Hot 100 in the US and #7 in both the UK and Australia.

The performance was everything you could expect from a Missy and a CiCi : impressive choreography, creative stage production and swag aplenty.


It’s performances like this which keep us rooting for Missy and Ciara, even when the charts don’t necessarily agree. Say what folk will, but most of the artists on top at the moment cannot demolish a stage the way these women can.

As for the BET Awards more broadly, we’re elated that the show is getting more and more recognition through the years and we say it’s much deserved as it has always delivered quality production and allows an often under-appreciated community to shine like the brightest stars in the sky. We’re ready!
