Missy Elliott Covers Marie Claire / Talks New Album

Published: Monday 15th Jul 2019 by Sam

Check out Missy Elliott!

The female rap pioneer covers the August issue of Marie Claire magazine.

Striking as ever, the star’s Micaiah Carter lensed shoot is paired with an equally engaging career retrospective – which arrives ahead of her long-awaited seventh studio album.

And though coy on the set, which she’s been working on daily for year, Missy did open up about the feeling she wants people to take away when listening to it.

The feature has been unveiled on the heels of an electrifying performance at the 2019 Essence Music Festival and her historic inauguration into the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame. 

Pics and quote below…

    Love Missy just think that she’s being way to much a perfectionist for this album… Please no more delays. I’m ready and so are all her fans.

    Wasn’t there supposed to be an album with “WTF”? I rarely buy rap/hip-hop music, but I bought that song.

    • Jasmine July 15, 2019

      There was but the follow up single ‘I’m Better (ft Lamb)’ flopped and WTF was the not the hit she wanted peaking at #22

        Thanks for the update TROLLMINE

    I think her album will do just as well as all the other greats that continue to put out music. They dont sell as much as they did 10+ years ago but they wills till provide quality music.

    COME THRU MUTHA!! Missy has NEVER turned in a bad album ? – hence her reluctance to release when her singles don’t pop – who wouldn’t be insecure that the sonics of the album wouldn’t grab the GP’s attention?

    Music just isn’t the same as the 90’s and 00’s though, the story telling, talent, innovation, epic video treatments and humour is missing – she may as well just go ahead and release the album because REAL fans of MUSIC and TALENT – will know what time it is. Chicken heads can stay quiet ??

    Gosh.. the love and respect I have for Missy!!!!

    My only wish for her next album is hearing Missy sound exactly like herself. I hope she is singing more like she did on her first 2 albums. I hope there is another collab w/ Lizzo and other artists, both new and veterans. And lastly, I want to see her promo executed right. Dont just perform at festivals Missy..go on a long overdue nationwide tour w/ a bomb opening act.. pre bundle for bigger first week sales like most of today’s chart toppers are doing now. Stomp on these wannabe so called ‘Queens’ of rap and remind them how you EARNED the title of MOST certified female rapper based on PURE album sales in U.S. history.


    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. July 15, 2019

      @Messy.. – You’re saying all that and Missy WILL FLOP harder than brick dropped from tall building. Oh and the QUEEN says thanks for the promo.

        First of all I didnt mention Garbaj name once.. there are many so called female rap ‘Queens’ out ther claiming the title but haven’t earned it.

        Secondly bish… when is the last time Nicki had a Hot 100 No.1 single (NEVER) or No.1 album (2012, SEVEN years ago).

        You Barbz are so easy to ridicule it’s a sad case.. just like your FLOP Favorite.

  10. WWWD WHAT WOULD WHITNEY DO July 15, 2019

    Skin is flawless what does a lyrics queen like Missy think about r Kelly Aaliyah and what is the current state of his situation about Aaliyah name .

    What does she think about how we now know Beyonce cannot sing like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey is done .

    does she think she’ll win more Grammys with song writing now a category than Mariah Carey.

    With somebody like Missy on her own ground why does she think that Mariah Carey after Whitney Houston died that she is still trying to compete,

    • WWWD WHAT WOULD WHITNEY DO July 15, 2019

      Darling, the hair is horrible,

      Who the f*** styled you, this image is not Missy, who the f*** is that???

      Look at the dumb style, she used to bring the pain with the hair.who okayed this look, the f*** she has on

  11. Lmfao_Hoe July 15, 2019

    Yes Missy and gosh I just want Lauryn to bless us with another album too and idk why but I’ve been feeling like she is working on something too. Last time I felt this way D Angelo released Black Messiah after I was like dang nothing since VooDoo

  12. #TheTruth July 15, 2019

    I love Missy. The best female MC to me, hands down.
    It’s been forever since the last album.
    The new generations that came along since then don’t really know her like that…
    I know she got sick. It’s gonna take a lot of work to put her career back on rotation and I’m not even talking about a career like back in the day.
    Looking forward to the new body of work ??

  13. Queen ?? Missy July 15, 2019

    Bow Down bish.

  14. #TheTruth July 15, 2019

    To whoever is complaining, well you don’t have to like her outfits and her looks.
    But this is a photoshoot, she’s just playing around. Trying things she won’t necessarily do on a regular basis.

  15. What would Whitney do. WWWD July 15, 2019

    If her clothes is any indication of her style for her album …it’s a no. Her hands in prayer ? mode, no it’s not what they want from her,
