Missy Elliott dropped off another innovative visual on Thursday (Oct. 17), which is something we’ve become accustomed to over the past two-plus decades from the 2019 Video Vanguard Award VMA winner. Missy just unleashed a vide for the ICONOLOGY deep cut «DripDemeanor,» featuring appearances by R&B newcomer Sum1 and Teyana Taylor.
Elliott is flanked by a team of dancers, and everyone’s in matching black latex suits. Sum1 sings in a biking helmet, while Missy changes into a glow-in-the-dark uniform. Missy’s creative handprints are all over the Derek Blanks-directed clip, which bleeds through with special effects turning her braids into a skyscraper, funky sunglasses and accessories, along with her colorful hairstyle switch-ups.
Taylor pops up near the end to continue the storyline from the «Throw It Back» video, which finds her speaking in an accent to educate the youth about the legendary Missy Elliott in what looks to be a museum. Hopefully there’s plenty more to come from Misdemeanor before 2019’s out.
Watch the «DripDemeanor» video below.
