Missy Elliott is eyeing a music comeback, but when?
Â Itâs been nine years since Missy Elliott last released an album, and by the looks of things, weâll have to keep on waiting. TheÂ hip-hopÂ icon recently explained why sheâs been taking her time toÂ release newÂ music.
In aÂ recent video chatÂ with Yahoo!âsÂ âThe Yo Show,â, Missy makes it clear that there is no writerâs block holding up the creation process, but that she wants things to be âgame changingâ when she does finally make her return. Missy added,
âWhen I create something, itâs gotta be special and it canât just be to throw something out there because I feel like Iâm Missy,â said the 42-year-old rapper. âI gotta feel like what Iâm giving the fans is 100 percent and that itâs game-changing. I donât just throw out microwaveÂ records.â
In September 2012, we thought we were making gains after Missy released two Timbaland-produced singles in â9th Inningâ and âTriple Threatâ, but her 7th album,Â Block Party, has yet to see a release.
âJust beingÂ inspired by things is what Iâm grabbing for because music is different now,â she explained. âNot to say that itâs bad, itâs just different now, so Iâm just trying to make sure that what I give is 100 percent because I know that expectations is high from my fans and itâs high of myself.â
However, Missy did reassure fans that she is planning a comeback. âItâs coming. I just ainât telling nobody when.â
