ICONOLOGY - EP
Missy Elliott has been pretty quiet on the
hip-hop scene since releasing her sixth
studio album The Cookbook back in 2005.
The Virginia-born rapper has released one-
off singles over the years, but ICONOLOGY
is her first collection of new material for 14
years. The positive critical reception to this
new release shows what we’ve long been
missing out on.
- Elliott first embarked on her music career
as a member of the all-female R&B outfit
Sista in the 1990s.
- Elliott’s absence from the spotlight in
recent years has been largely due to her
being diagnosed with Grave’s disease, which
had evidenced itself in leg spasms.
- However, with her condition responding
well to treatment, Elliott later revealed
that she would be eager to return to her
- Through social media, Elliott announced
ICONOLOGY only several hours before it
- Iconology comes about half a year after
the single “Tempo”, a collaboration between
Elliott and Lizzo.
