While promoting her latest singles, “Triple Threat” and “9th Inning,” Missy Elliott went on BET’s 106 & Park. Elliott explained that she feels her new music will show fans that she and Timbaland still have a strong connection in the studio. As she clarified, she thinks their new music will show that they “never left.” 

“This album is so crazy,” Missy said. “People be like, ‘Welcome back. We glad you back.’ No. This will say we never left. There’s nothing like it.”

During the interview, Missy also shared her appreciation for Chris Lighty, who recently passed. She expressed how he was a one-of-a-kind individual who will be missed.  

“There will only be one Chris Lighty and one Violator and such great memories,” she shared. “We’re gonna miss him so much. Great man, great man. If anybody don’t know Chris Lighty, they should. It’s almost something you have to learn in your history books.”
