1. Missy Elliott, "WTF (Where They From)"
Director: David Meyers
A legend returns through the medium that helped us first recognize her greatness. The video for "WTF (Where They From)" proves that Elliott can still be the bold innovator that most of the world learned about nearly 20 years ago with her debut video, "The Rain." Teaming with director David Meyers, this time Elliott leaves behind the hyper-real settings she famously inhabited for songs like "Get Ur Freak On" and "Lose Control," and instead appears in more grounded locations like city streets and Metro stops. Still, she looks like a visitor from the future, sent to reflect the possibilities of boundless creativity.
