Missy Elliott debuted new music over the weekend at KCON, a Korean pop conference in Los Angeles, with a performance alongside G Dragon. Elliott and the Korean pop star performed "Niliria," which is set to be featured on G Dragon's upcoming solo album, MissInfo reports.

Where Does Missy Elliott's 'Get Ur Freak On' Rank Among the 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs?

Elliott has been pretty quiet since 2005's The Cookbookbut premiered "Triple Threat" and "9th Inning" last year with Timbaland. "A lot of folks have came and sat here and went, but we're still here," said Timbaland.

No word yet on when Elliott might be ready with a new album.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
