Missy Elliott is returning with her 7th solo album this fall after taking a few years off and she’s building up anticipation with a teaser for her latest single “9th Inning” featuring Timbaland, who obviously crafted the beat .
Missy is primed and ready for her comeback, spitting, “Now I’m in the 9th inning, thought I fell off, I ain’t quite finish,” to open up the track. Listen below. Her latest album, the first since 2005′s The Cookbook, is tentatively titled Block Party and will include plenty of work with Timbaland. Earlier this year Timbo told MTV News that the longtime friends and collaborators had planned to release projects within close range of each other. ”I just don’t want to move too ahead of her and she don’t want to move too ahead of me,” Timbaland said. “So we’re both doing it at the same time.”
