Missy Elliott will release two new singles over Labor Day weekend. Longtime friend and collaborator Timbaland made the announcement on Twitter, revealing the singles will be “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat.”
Elliott’s last studio album, The Cookbook, was released in 2005. She was set to release the followup in June, but the record hasn’t materialized. In April, Elliott took the stage in New York with Timbaland and performed “Triple Threat.” Elliott and Timbaland were reported to be involved in the upcoming posthumous Aaliyah album before Elliott’s manager shot down the rumors.
