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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
