The duo shares an undeniable musical bond.

From childhood friends to music collaborators, Missy Elliott and Timbaland have shared an iconic bond throughout their endeavors. The Swing Mob members have both taken to social media this weekend to hint at a long-awaited new project. On Sunday (February 26th), Missy posted on her story "it's go time," and tagged Timbaland in the post. The "Apologize" rapper returned his enthusiasm by posting the story, writing, "time for us to press that go button." He also added, "we n our bag like always."

Over the years, the pair have co-conspired a number of hits, including Missy's first five albums. As they have navigated from hit to hit, they have never been afraid to experiment with the sounds of rap and push the genre into new domains. Most recently, the duo linked up for Missy's 2019 EP Iconology, where Timbaland added his production flavor to "DripDemeanor" and "Why I Still Love You."

Missy And Timbaland Tease At A New Project

Although it's been years since this iconic duo has worked up their magic together in the studio, they both have expanded their discographies independently. Missy released "Ratata" this year with Skrillex, and featured on David Guetta and Afrojack's single "Trampoline." Timbaland, on the other hand, has primarily remained producing. His most recent efforts have been featured in Jack Harlow's Come Home the Kids Miss You and The Game's Drillmatic - Heart vs. Mind. Seemingly, it looks like Timbaland and Missy are both returning to their roots for the start of the new year.

When recounting the successes of her previous albums, Missy has never been shy at pointing out Timbaland's contributions. Upon reflection of Da Real World, she tweeted, “I was so hard on myself & for a while this was my least favorite until years later I realized the MASTERPIECE @Timbaland & I had created.'' In remembrance of her 2001 album, Miss E… So Addictive, she tweeted how the duo was able to expand their experimentation: "we were open to showing what the FUTURE of music could sound like in our minds.” Regardless of what these partners are cooking up in the studio now, it's safe to say it will exceed expectations.
