Timbaland talks about Missy Elliot’s First Album In More Than Fifteen Years
Hit-maker Timbaland, birth name Timothy Zachery Mosley, is giving details on legendary artist Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot’s new album.
How Does The Album Sound?
Timbaland told Variety the songs for her new album are givin’ upbeat and youthful Missy Elliot.
Timbo stresses that he wanted the music to sound how they both look: young.
“We both look like we 19. I know how Missy works: It’s got to be new and fun — or maybe not so much new as kind of underground, and everything is upbeat,” said the record producer.
“Latin Feel” On A Few Songs
He added a “Latin feel” is present in some of the songs.
“Almost a Bad Bunny effect. Some of it’s kinda like underground Brazilian funk. People gonna eat it up — and it might reach just a different demographic of people. It’s like it’s her doing… not reggaeton but Missy-ton,” Timbaland mentioned in the interview.
The Virginia native hopes this new album will include features from Latin artists such as Bad Bunny and Young Miko.
Timbaland knows that Elliot’s influence is “Global.”
So, it looks like that is the sound he is reaching for with this new album.
We can expect this musical masterpiece as soon as this summer.
Mosley is collaborating not only with his longtime friend Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot but also with his good friend Justin Timberlake.
Their album is complete, but Timbo is waiting for Timberlake to determine the release date.
The Cookbook Was Missy Elliot’s Last Full Album, More Than 15 Years Ago

But you have heard Missy’s musical genius spreading throughout the industry lately in rapper BIA’s “I’m That B**ch,” which samples her 1999 “She’s a B**ch.”
Plus, Chlöe’s new album features Missy on “Told Ya.”
In addition, British girl group Flo’s single “Fly Girl” featuring the Virginia native. That song is mainly an interpolation of Missy’s 2002 “Work It.”
