And outta nowhere Missy decided to drop a new single and video on us… BAM!  These late night unannounced releases be killin’ me cuz it always happens when I’m literally minutes away from logging off from the world.  OK, let’s dive into this real quick…

Missy is back armed with her patented #BlackGirlMagic once again teams up with longtime collaborator/director Dave Meyers for another visual feast of WTF moments.  Admittedly, the song is just “meh” and the 2017 Magoo who mumbles the hook(?), apparently his name is “Lamb”, doesn’t really bring much to the party.  We all know that this song is basically an excuse for the Missy ‘n’ Meyers dream team to, once again, lead the Hip Hop charge and push the music video artform forward. 

There is a crazy “water floor” moment that I didn’t see coming, a bit of underwater aerobi-choreo, and some aerial-inspired action going to keep you entertained for three minutes.  The styling hits a homerun as well—- dancers in bodysuits with Chinese characters while rocking Carol Channing wigs, Missy’s feathered shoulders and her aquatic space raver looks are some of my faves.

Again the song, a seemingly half hearted attempt at a trap banger, is Missy at not quite her best but the video?... yeah, it’s dope and it’s impressive that she and Dave make it look so easy after all of these years.
