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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
