Album of the Day
Miss E… So Addictive
Missy Elliott strode confidently into the new millennium with MISS E...SO ADDICTIVE, the hip-hop diva's third album. With Timbaland returning as co-producer, it's a given that the collection bursts with brilliant beats and inspired instrumental accents. It's also no surprise that some of rap's biggest names pay tribute to Missy by adding a verse or two - Method Man, Ludacris, Ginuwine, Busta Rhymes, Da Brat and Jay-Z among them. But the spotlight is Elliott's throughout; her performance is riveting whether on slow-burning ballads (“Take Away”) or propulsive dance movers (“Scream a.k.a. Itchin,” “Get Ur Freak On” - both Grammy winners). Elliott received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on this day in 2021, and the Platinum-selling MISS E...SO ADDICTIVE is one of the reasons why.
