Last night Missy Elliott joined longtime production partner Timbaland during a New York City show to perform a new song, Miss Info reports.

Timbaland previously debuted the song, thought to be called "Triple Threat," without Elliott at Vibe's SXSW showcase. Last night the two performed the cut at an event sponsored by Hennessy.

Timbaland recently revealed plans to release solo albums for himself and Elliott in June. Elliott's upcoming release, Block Party, will mark her first since 2005.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
