//. comeback [NOUN]
I finally had a chance to watch MISSY ELLIOTT’S new video ‘I’m Better’ (currently with 8.1M views in just over a week) and I’ve read so many comments calling this a comeback, which from my perspective I wouldn’t call it that, as MISSY will always be a relevant artist. But in terms of the video and song, I was a little disappointed.
Firstly, let me address a comment that I read in Fader which stated that MISSY was “going in with a vintage-Migos triplet flow and harmonizing”. *sigh
MISSY has been in the game for so long that the above comparison/description was not necessary. Now don’t get me wrong Migos are cool and I like them but that comment just didn’t feel quite right to me. We are talking about MISSY ELLIOTT here! The woman who gave us SUPA DUPA FLY, BEEP ME 911, THE RAIN, HOT BOYZ, ALL N MY GRILL, TWEET, NICOLE WRAY, AALIYAH, I could go on but you catch my drift.
Now the video was artistic and I loved the part where it switched to everyone dancing underwater but the video itself, wasn’t as sharp or as smooth as we’ve previously seen with MISSY videos.
Now the song….who is LAMB? My cousin said to me that if you didn’t know his name and never saw the video you would have thought it was Timbaland and to be fair she was right. Now you guys will think I’m crazy but I think Meek Mill would have been the perfect choice for this song because he has so much energy and this song needed energy and hype, which all comes with Meek. So MISSY, please collaborate with Meek because I think it would crazy and I wanna see him win so bad in 2017.
See the ‘I’m Better ft. LAMB video below and as always let me know your thoughts.
