The most talked-about part of Super Bowl XLIX was undoubtedly the decision made by Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to call a passing play on the one-yard line while the team was down four points. The call was so bad people defaced dude's Wikipedia page. But instead of dwelling on Tom Brady moving up the all-time ranks, we'd rather join the chorus of viewers who, after watching last night's Katy Perry-headlined Halftime Show, are all in agreement that Missy Elliott needs to make a proper comeback. For real, the world is ready. Don't believe us, just check iTunes where four of Missy's albums are back in the top 100.
We're not sure how or why she wound up on stage with Ms. Perry, but we're glad she did. It's hard to top a woman riding a giant golden lion, but Missy somehow managed to do so, running through a medley of her old hits. Missy's appearance was all the more warming because it showed that, after battling Graves' disease for a number of years, she may be back to full health. During her absence, Missy kept busy collaborating with and producing for artists like J. Cole, Keyshia Cole, Jazmine Sullivan, and Monica.
Still, it's been 10 years since we've been blessed with a full-length project from the Virginia native who blended R&B and hip-hop into a futuristic funk that still sounds a bit out of arm's reach of today's musicians. So you'll forgive us for being a bit taken aback by her performing in front of millions last night. We weren't the only ones. A quick glance at Twitter showed that we're all patiently waiting for Misdemeanor's return. With Ginuwine and Tweet both announcing plans to get back in the studio with Timbaland, we wonder if that means Missy has a comeback planned as well. And from the looks of this tweet, maybe we'll be getting that comeback sooner rather than later:
Let's all cross our fingers.
does this mean Missy is going to make a comeback..... ): I hope so
