    When a legend like Missy Elliott suddenly returns to the music scene, everybody pays attention.

    After three years without a new single, Elliott dropped a new video, “WTF (Where They From)” featuring Pharrell - and the collective internet freakout is approaching Beyonce proportions.

    The Los Angeles times explains:

    Consider this: In the decade since the groundbreaking rapper-producer last issued an album, Nicki Minaj put female rappers back on pop charts; Katy Perry and Lady Gaga became superstars largely because of left-field visuals in the same way Elliott once had; Rihanna grew into a force to be reckoned with and Beyoncé seemingly controls the pulse of the pop conversation  with the tip of her fingers.

    That’s why when Elliott — who reinvented the sound of ‘90s urban music with longtime collaborator Timbaland — popped up as Perry’s surprise guest during this year’s halftime show and delivered a medley of hits, it was easy to forget she wasn’t the headliner.
