A year on from Missy Elliott‘s surprise showing during Katy Perry‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show, the iconic rapper has unleashed a brand new track titled ‘Pep Rally.’

Released to iTunes moments ago, the song follows last Fall’s official comeback ‘WTF (ft. Pharrell),’ which peaked at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100.

‘Pep’ appears in a new Amazon Echo commercial set to air during the Super Bowl starring Missy and Alec Baldwin.

It’s not quite ‘WTF,’ but it’s sonically from the same school of sound and packs a potent enough punch enough to pulsate on the dance-floor.

More than anything, get those endorsement dollars Missy! Peep the commercial here:

    I like missy but her sound is tired.

    • ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

      Right sis! She should stay behind the scenes.

    • Terry B February 7, 2016

      Ciara’s career is tired

      • #JACKIE February 7, 2016

        Tired yet she’s the only female R&B artist to get a platinum single in 2015. Did “WTF(is this corny ass song)” even go hay?

      • Terry B February 7, 2016

        Don’t act like she isn’t a flop. That bogus platinum plaque means nothing…The song tanked and the album never left the self!

      • #JACKIE February 7, 2016

        Let’s not act like Missy’s last album was some sort of epic success sis. Her last few singles flopped and her last album barely went gold and this was during a time when albums were selling. Doesn’t matter what you say hōe, I Bet is platinum and Body Party is close to it. RIAA certified, b****. Now be seated.

      • Terry B February 7, 2016

        Lol, not that this even has to be said, Missy’s stats slay Ciara’s. And barely going gold? Ciara ain’t had a gold album since 07/08

      • #JACKIE February 7, 2016

        And neither has Missy even though she hasn’t released since 2005/2006! Her next album won’t get any kind of certification and that’s a fact. Missy hasn’t gone platinum since 2002.

      • Kii February 7, 2016

        Kamo these Ciflop stans are coming for Missy forgetting that the Grammy they keep clining to belongs to Missy.

      • Kii February 7, 2016

        Ciara has never had all her albums certified.
        Ciara has never won a SOLO Grammy
        Lmao has she even been nominated for AOYT?
        Keep clining to I Bet but keep forgetting that dancing like we are got two left feet was ever declared a single and all the other singles after body flip?

  2. ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

    No Gawd Honey

  3. Celine Divine February 7, 2016

    I liked it. Sounds better than Beyonce’s Formation. Looks like everyone is releasing better quality music than Beyonce.

    • ?Queen Molly? February 7, 2016

      The lies sit down h**

  4. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 7, 2016

    This is the EXACT same production as the damn Wobble. Missy WTF is going on here! You are a mutherfvking L E G E N D. You ARE the queen of rap. Whoever produced this got you fvcked up. Make a call quick to Timbo

  5. Lake Erie February 7, 2016

    LmaOoooo! !! Aaaw, cool commercial, Missy short! I didn’t realize that, and she look so cute and dabbie. I’m feeling pep rally. The beat really knocks and makes you wanna get low like she did in the commercial. So excited for tonight’s game! #Panthers #CamNewton #HalftimeShow #LetsGoooo!

  6. Nicki+Ciara-Alicia = February 7, 2016

    Mess(y) this is not gonna have Nicki running back to the studio. Bye Manny

  7. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) February 7, 2016

    I like the song. It sounds good in the car. Missy said she wants to make people dance + that’s exactly what I want to do when I hear these. Keep going Missy!

  8. King Mark111 /.\ February 7, 2016

    This is an album cut. Missy! You had 10 years to be ready and should had dropped during the Superbowl last year. I’m still buying, but I’m done with waiting. But don’t get it twisted, her productions on others albums are always the best.

  9. Nicki+Ciara-Alicia = February 7, 2016

    2016 better come the F thru Bey,Nelly,Messy, Kayne and maybe Rih—–> Vets are here. Alicia girl give us something

  10. Knowles Carter February 7, 2016

    This sounds a 2006 ass mess. Missy, bye.

  11. christinastherealtalent February 7, 2016

    Normally, I don’t come for Cici because I love her music but when y’all dog out Missy for being dated, just remember she’s the bad b*tch that’s behind a lot of your faves biggest hits! Ciara, Beyonce, Monica, etc…

  12. jearttone February 7, 2016

    People behind music know missy is one of the illest female writers in the game…she should’ve wrote janets entire new album..

  13. 4everBrandy_Ci February 7, 2016

    Missy Elliott’s sound is what makes her as an artist. I haven’t heard the entire production but will soon. I just know Queen Missy never disappoints in my eyes because she knows her integrity as an individual. C’mon Misdemeanor I’m ready!!!!! SLAY!!!!!!

  14. JMar February 7, 2016

    i love missy but this s*** is horrible i dont like it at all she waited to late to release music i still like wtf but pep rally sound a little to high school bad choice missy.

    • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB February 7, 2016

      If Nicki released this same exact song, everyone on tgj would hate it. I feel like she keeps going by the same formula as her last hit many years ago. She needs a new sound.

  15. FC/JC February 7, 2016

    Just drop the album Missy, People dont appreciate these appetizer singles…. It would be better to just give us the full course and let the fans pick your next singles…

  16. What now February 7, 2016

    This is classic Missy. Don’t be fooled into thinking she’s outdated or etc. Missy knows wat works for her. That’s why WTF was so futuristic Missy and Pep Rally is so Cookbook Missy. She is the Hip-hop Queen.

  17. eric February 7, 2016

    I love WTF, but this song is way too noisy. And what’s worse is Missy straining her voice through the whole thing. Call it a buzz single and scrap it.

  18. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 8, 2016

    Pretty good song
