Missy Elliot works with Skrillex and Diplo, remixes Jack U’s ‘Take U There’
If Katy Perry ‘resurrected’ Missy Elliott at the Superbowl, then Skrillex and Diplo are about to give the hip hop icon a brand new throne at the top of the EDM crossover heap. Just as she did over Timbaland’s groundbreaking production work, Elliott makes rapping over the unorthodox beatwork seem natural. Without hesitation she jumps into Jack U’s horn-backed production to unleash a flurry of bars that are reminiscent of her Supa Dupa Fly era versework, putting Kiesza in the back seat this go round. Leaning into “Take U There’s” fluttering hi hats and wonky samples, Missy shows off her spitfire flow and proves that no one brought her back — she was on top of her game the entire time.
“Take Ü There” (Missy Elliott Remix) comes out this Thursday, 2/19
