A few months back, Timbaland took a previously unreleased Missy Elliott track out of the vault, the wobbly “Swat Dat Fly.” While that was an old one, Timbo’s Missy collaboration, the selection for this week’s Timbaland Thursdays series, feels much more fresh – and bangin’! Jump below to allow Missy to reintroduce herself on “Take Ur Clothes Off.”[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Timbaland-Missy.mp3" text="Timbaland feat.

“Allow me to reintroduce myself / My name’s Missy, rockin’ like no one else / I don’t need no one cause I’m feelin’ myself,” spits out the 39-year old rap star.
“I get crazy for you baby / Been rapping since ya’ll were little babies.” Hey, Elliott’s kind of right – when she began her rap career in the early 90s, Nicki Minaj was still in elementary school. And Willow Smith wasn’t even born!
But back to the song. Oh, how we’ve missed Missy! Her Block Party comeback CD has been pushed back more than we can count, though both she and Timbo swear 2011 is the year new music will drop. And this tune – a work in progress, for sure, but very promising – is a good indication that we can believe them this time.
What do you think of “Take Ur Clothes Off”? Worth the wait?
