Thinking back on the 90’s and early 00’s, the dynamic duo Timbaland and Missy Elliott ruled the radio stations and rap game with consecutive innovative and revolutionary hits that were equally bizarre and dope. Although these two have not collaborated in over a decade, they reunite to take over the charts and radios once again with Missy’s newest singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat”.
Almost like they never left. Teaming up and delivering some raw-rap flow reminiscent of their earlier days together, Timb and Missy bring some old school feel on “9th Inning”. Complete with horns, a start-and-stop dancehall vibe and piano rips, this Timbaland produced single has both emcees dropping sick verses to salvage a music scene in a “bad state”. “Triple Threat” is the faster tempo, more club-friendly track of the two singles. Coupled with drums, synths, and Timbaland on the hook, this up-beat party single has Missy boasting about her triple threat talents of singing, rapping, and dancing.
Both songs are available now on iTunes and will be featured on Missy’s upcoming LP, appropiately titled Block Party, due out later this year.
