We wanted to highlight Missy’s talents for her special day, so we’re taking it back to 1997 when she shared her debut studio album, Supa Dupa Fly. Missy executive produced her Platinum-selling project alongside her best friend and collaborator Timbaland, and it was a record that helped map out an unmatched career.
As the world celebrates Missy Elliott, stream “Rain,” one of her earliest hits and one that continues to be a cultural staple in Hip Hop. Happy Birthday to a gamechanger!
When the rain hits my window
I take and me some Indo
Me and Timbaland, ooh, we sang a jangle
We so tight, that you get our styles tangled
Sway on dosie-do like you loco
Can we get kinky tonight? Like Coko, so-so
You don’t wanna play with my yo-yo
I smoke my hydro on the D-Low
