Missy Elliott already has a legacy cemented as one of the greatest artists (not just rapping, not just music videos or production or songwriting) of all-time. Fourteen years after she released her last full-length album, the 2019 recipient of the MTV Video Vanguard Award is releasing a new project, Iconography.

“Let’s #ThrowItBack to a time when music just felt good and made us want to dance,” she wrote on Twitter and Instagram. Peep the cover art below.
