Rapper Missy Elliott ready to Party again

Rapper Missy Elliott is gearing up to release her first album in three years.


Rapper Missy Elliott is gearing up to release her first album in three years.

Tentatively titled Block Party and due in August, the oft-delayed Atlantic release is the follow-up to 2005’s The Cookbook, which sold a relatively disappointing 645,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Her best-seller is 2002’s Under Construction which sold 2.1 million copies.

Tracks on the new album, Elliott’s seventh, include the drum-heavy Hip-Hop Don’t Die; the sensual Milk & Cookies, on which Elliott lightheartedly harmonizes about her capabilities in the bedroom; and first single Best Best.

To help reintroduce Elliott to the marketplace, Atlantic included two new songs, Ching-a-Ling and Shake Your Pom Pom, on the Step Up 2 the Streets soundtrack in March. The tracks, which will be reprised on Block Party, have already sold a combined 296,000 copies digitally.

Elliott will also release a promotional album in mid-summer, Fanomenal, which was titled by fans in an online vote and will include exclusive tracks and videos. And, in keeping with the new album title’s theme, Elliott will host a couple of block parties around the July 4 and Labour Day weekends.
