New Video: Missy Elliott – ‘Throw It Back’ [starring Teyana Taylor]

Published: Thursday 22nd Aug 2019 by Rashad

‘I’ma snatch they wigs, til I see their scalps,’ Missy Elliott proclaims in the brand spankin’ new video, ‘Throw It Back.’

Launched as the leading single from Elliott’s recently announced EP, ‘ICONOLOGY’ (click here to listen), ‘Throw’ – which makes its premiere just days before the rapper receives the Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV VMAs – comes as a fitting ode to self.

Even featuring a scene of the 48-year-old dressed as a moonman, the visual is chock full of self-references to toast to her game-changing 25+ year career.  If ever you needed a reminder why she is a leader among visual artists and has consistently pushed the medium’s needle forward, it awaits you inside:

    Ugh I loved missy but this is not it ? the video is dope tho, but that’s not the problem it’s the music. She was one of the few who had an ear for hotness but it’s lost

      I don’t think Missy is trying have this be a number one song. The landscape is different she would know she’s still been in the studio helping others with their sounds til this day. She knows her fans will appreciate the artistry and her bars. She has boos on the EP too

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

    The real QUEEN of Rap, and not self proclaimed

    • Rosanna August 23, 2019

      Like Lil Kim the real Queen B and not the self proclaimed

      • SMH August 23, 2019

        Lil Kim is self proclaimed too, the press never gave her that title and neither did the public.

    • ArRihNaj August 23, 2019

      Ppl been calling Nicki Queen before she called herself queen! Do ur research….

      • 2bad2bme August 23, 2019

    Issa bop!

  5. Clocked In August 22, 2019

    Terrible accent Teyana tried to do lol…..
    Always moved Missy’s videos she was so ahead of her time.
    Tierra Whack is definitely inspired my Missy for sure! Her videos are very reminiscent.

    This current generation does not deserve a Missy Elliot!

    Epic visual on par w/ anything she’s done in the past. My favorite scene was her using the long braids as a jump rope! I have never seen anyone do that! I loved the outfits and choreo. Plus Missy is aging backwards looking incredible for her age! Gahhh I love her so much! True fans should not care if this doesnt become a success on today’s charts because today’s charts are filled with pure garbage!

    Congrats Missy! ???

    • Zen August 23, 2019

      Lol but her new EP is full of vulgar lyrics. As a matter of fact some of her biggest hits are vulgar. Y’all do too much ???

  8. Clarkson August 23, 2019

    One word, OUTDATED
    shes trying to capitalize on that vanguard award to restart her career.

    • Tyty August 23, 2019

      You have a deep hatred for black women and it’s very obvious you are always so negative. You are such a miserable demon.

    • The Truth August 23, 2019

      The more comments you post, the more ignorant you sound. Why the F**K would she and her team NOT capitalize on receiving the HIGHEST honor from the VMA’s by releasing new music? You are an idiot, seriously. You don’t understand the music industry and how a good team gets you these deals and knows how to capitalize on awards.

      Nicki and your other favorites will NEVER get the Vanguard award.

      CONGRATULATIONS Missy!!! 25 years and STILL slaying!

    • Queen ?? Missy August 24, 2019

      Outdated? That is the weakest attempt at shade I’ve ever seen. Go back at try again sis.

  9. Tyty August 23, 2019

    She literally hasn’t aged.. she looks good. The video was creative as per usual. She is not chasing a hit I’m sure she knows the politics of BB100. She is still legendary.

  10. Haterz Gon‘ Hate August 23, 2019

    The video is legit LIT ? ???? Giving me multiple treatments, styling, choreo. But something is lacking – that energy and club banging anthem – is it because she’s working with Timbo and he beatz been stale for years now (hi JT) ? And I notice from her EP this is not the rapping voice we used to have from Missy, her voice is much deeper this go round.

    Imma need Missy to keep on with the visuals and bring the club banger anthem and production values of Where Dey From, Ain’t That Funny, Gossip Folks, Lose Control, Beep me 911, Work It, and One Min Man – I know she still got hits in her!!!!

  11. The Truth August 23, 2019

    The QUEEN of rap! I was hoping she’d have a feature with Cardi since they’re on the same label, but I am LIVING! This is a return to form for Missy and MUCH MUCH MUCHHHH better than those last songs she released (9th inning, pep rally, etc).


    • SMH August 23, 2019

      LOL cardi? Um no, Missy doesn’t work with bums.

  12. pat August 23, 2019

    used to missy’s vocal tone being moreexpressive,a but she’s using the current laid back trap cadence, i understand, but makes it feel kinda lacking, still that heat lowkey tho

  13. Yolanda August 24, 2019

    It is coincidence that Missy wore pink in the opening? *ICU Missy*
