Missy Elliott

Jack Ü – Take Ü There (Missy Elliott Remix)

Not many stars can steal the spotlight from a flame-adorned Katy Perry riding a giant silver lion, but thats exactly what Missy Elliott did with her jaw-dropping Super Bowl performance. Elliott’s comeback was a long time coming; the rapper achieved incredible critical acclaim in the 90’s and early 2000’s but has rarely made public appearances since. Proving that she’s just as relevant and impactful as she was 10 years ago, Elliott quickly teamed up with one of dance music’s most talked about duos, Jack Ü, to add some hip-hop flair to their signature track ‘Take Ü There’.

Skrillex and Diplo’s super-duo is well known for a frantic, reggae-inspired sound that prominently features blaring horns and hip-hop inspired beats, making this collaboration a match made in heaven. Missy Elliott expertly layers her fast and furious verses over the track’s blazing drop, and perfectly keeps up with the song’s quick pace. A dirty beat and irreverent (but clever) lyrics were Elliott’s trademarks at the peak of her popularity and ‘Take Ü There’ gives her a chance to show a younger generation, and new audience, that she’s back and better than ever.
