Listen: Missy Elliott Teases 2019 Return With Snippet of New Song ‘Cool Off’

Published: Sunday 7th Oct 2018 by Rashad


Missy Elliott had fans saying WTF after her last three singles (‘WTF,’ ‘Pep Rally,’ and ‘I’m Better’) all came and went without their parent album being furnished.

The release of the critically acclaimed cuts only extended the already 10 year+ long wait, a feat that certainly didn’t go unnoticed by her faithful followers.  Finally – over a year after the release of ‘Better’ – the rapstress responded to their requests for new music by taking to Twitter earlier this month to explain her absence:

Now, with her confidence in tow, it appears she’s ready to make her grand return.  Hear the snippet of her soon-to-come offering, ‘Cool Off’:


As if we aren’t already pumped for her American Music Awards performance (click here to read), news that Miss is readying a return in 2019 just adds to the many reasons we’re excited for what’s to come in the new year.

Roll on 2019!

      She’s already been back multiple times and all those attempts flopped. She’s lost her touch and ear for hits or creativity 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  2. DanYiel Iman October 7, 2018

    I’m ready for this!!

  3. Latinissima October 7, 2018

    That was a bad snippet. Didn’t get any hype at all.

      • Anon October 8, 2018

        Neither do I … unfortunately I speak English :/

    I’ll address the elephant in the room…. Missy is dated. She should just chill and enjoy her legacy. Everything she’s relsssed post “Lose Control” has sucked.

    • Anon October 8, 2018

      She did 1 with Pharrell, that seemed okay :/ Maybe she is dated

    • SMH October 8, 2018

      As much as I hate to admit it, you’re right, I think Missy’s time has come & gone.

  5. Sweetnothings78 October 8, 2018

    Absolutely YES!

    So sick of the Travis Scott male rap all sounding the same and Nickis lost her edge and Cardis music is uninspiring!

    All over a missy return and music needs to get better in 2019. 2018’s been a mess of dark depressing music and yet NOTHING is memorable…at all!

    Glad she’s releasing music but this ain’t it. Missy needs to stop making noise and start making hits like she used to.

    • Fancy BISH October 8, 2018

      Exactly! I was like, what in the noise hell was this ish? 🤣 Have you seen that viral video with that lady on the airplane complaining about being woken up to, and I quote, “That Scooby Doo sh!tt” ….lol, I instantly thought of that when I heard this! 😂

      That’s why her comeback has never taken place. After „loose control“ all of her music has been just weird and most of the times noise. I love her old stuff and love the cookbook album or whatever it has been called, but to be honest – I think she lost her mojo. All of the singles she has released and even though there has always been hype for a comeback, none of it took off. And that’s because they have been horrible. Too bad, because I would love to have a talented and intelligent female rapper around.

    I hope mutha comes through 🙏🏽 Missy has always thrived on having people ‘get‘ her sound – I think this is a case of trying to not sound like the 90‘s/ 2000‘s and come with something fresh but she’s lost that cohesiveness somehow. Thing is – Missy is a perfectionist and more talented than a lot of today’s writers, producers, rappers and Vocalists – she can (and has) done it ALL ✅ So many others have come back and found their groove/lane – I know Missy can do it too (Janet, Mariah, Nivea, Ciara) she needs to go back to rap filled with character, personality and humour and get those strong hooks and melodies back. No one is looking for lyrically sparse tracks over trap beatz from Missy.

  8. Detruth October 8, 2018

    Just come with the fire crazy style we used to Missy and I’ll be here for it. I’m actually going to buy a physical copy Missy means that much to me 😊

  9. Queen Missy 👸🏾 October 8, 2018

    Missy will be fine. She have saved some of your fav’s bland ass songs. At this point she don’t have to worry about charts, Grammys, or money. You know you a bad bish when you don’t even have to tour.

  10. Selah October 8, 2018

    Doesn’t sound good. As a matter of fact, none of her recent singles have been good. It’s crazy because the songs she did for other artists within the past few years (Fantasia, J. Cole, Ariana) have been good.

    I think we are used to Missy coming with fresh sounds, which she hasn’t done in quite some time.

  11. Dma October 8, 2018

    The features are going to be cray.

  12. Xoxo October 8, 2018

    I’m excited about the midterm elections. VOTE VOTE VOTE

    I love Missy but this is not it. Her stuff is usually fire, but her last few attempts to return to former glory have been unsuccessful. Hopefully, she’ll return to the lab and release something proper.

  14. eric October 8, 2018

    Pharrell imo gave Missy one of her best with “WTF”, and her performance of the song on The Voice was perfection. This new song though, like the majority of them in the last 5 years, should never have been recorded. Seems like so many artists reach a point where they can no longer connect with their sound and they still convince themselves that their new material is great–that’s the story with Missy, Usher, Alicia… it’s really too bad.
