Missy Elliott drops surprise ‘Iconology’ EP and new single ‘Throw It Back’

Missy Elliott has just given us a jam over the weekend: she dropped a brand new EP, “Iconology,” just after midnight, as well as a new single and video, “Throw It Back.

“Iconology” — Elliot’s first album since 2005’s “The Cookbook” — is really more of an EP, boasting a lean five tracks, two of which are the same but one is delivered a cappella.

“Please don’t steal my style/I might cuss you out/What you doin’ now/I did for a while,” Missy raps on “Throw It Back,” reminding everyone of just who they’re dealing with and what she brought to the game back in the day.

“This year has been a tremendous year for me…I am humbled and grateful,” Missy continued. “THANK YOU for allowing me to smell the roses. You, my fans, and God are the reason I am here and have celebrated every milestone with me!”

As of early Friday morning, “Iconology” was already the No. 7 most-popular album on iTunes. You can stream or purchase it now from all the usual retailers.

Missy’s album drops just a few days before the pioneering rapper will be honored at the MTV VMAs with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. In celebration of the accolade, MTV is hosting an interactive museum highlighting iconic moments from Missy’s storied career.

  • “Throw It Back”
