Tweet and Missy Elliott reunite for a new track, “Somebody Else Will” and it’s got us all in our feelings.
The smooth vibes matched with Tweet’s effortless voice proves to be a winning formula. But before the crooner gets into her track, Elliott kicks it off with a short rhyme.
“Oh now he all up in his feelings / He ain’t did nothin’ for me in a minute / I cut him off just like the end of a sentence / He seen me with somebody else, no more pretendin’,” she raps. Afterwards, Missy throws in a few trademark ad libs throughout the song like “New Tweet!”
It’s been 14 years since the two collaborated on “Oops (Oh My)” in 2002. But their reunion’s timing is on point since Elliott has been making her comeback, as well. Last year, Misdemeanor dropped “WTF” featuring Pharrell and she started off this year with “Pep Rally.”
Tweet and Missy’s new song is slated to be released on Tweet’s forthcoming album, Charlene — named after Tweet’s birth name. The album — which will be Tweet’s first album in 11 years — drops on Feb. 26 via eOne.
In an interview with The Boombox, Tweet shared some details on her friendship with Elliott.
“We’re still sisters,” she said. “We’ve known each other since ‘94 before either of us ‘hit’ the world. We grinded together.”
“It’s like riding a bike,” she continued. “She could send me something from the studio and know that I’m doing something to it that’ll be fly. There’s no real formula. It’s just family. We all lived in motels and traveled and did everything together so we know what the grind is. That’s a family bond that will never be broken.”
We certainly can’t wait to hear what more these two have in store. Check out Tweet’s latest single below.
