Rapper/producer Melissa Arnette known to most of her fans as “Missy Elliot,” has been surprisingly making the rounds in the news as of late. Her recent exposure leads us to believe she’s setting us up for a major comeback. Elliot is most well known for her work with superstar producer Timbaland and late singer Aaliyah. Toward the end of the 1990s, Elliot capitalized on a widely successful solo rap career winning five grammys and selling over 30 million records worldwide.
Elliot’s fame was also sparked by the release of her signature music videos for hits including “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)”, “Hot Boyz”, “Get Ur Freak On”, “Work It”, and the Grammy award-winning video for “Lose Control.” Remember those days?!
Most recently Elliot has been in the news for her shocking 70-pound weight loss. According to CBS News, BET and Centric announced Monday that Elliot, Lil’ Kim and Da Brat will reunite at the Soul Train Awards on Nov. 7, when the show tapes at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for more coverage on the much anticipated resurrecton of Ladies Night.
