Upon today's release, the companion video immediately became the #1 trending topic on both Twitter and Facebook. In addition, the "WTF (Where They From)" Feat. Pharrell Williams video will be screening high above New York City's Times Square via @beatsbydre massive billboard tonight at 6PM EST. The clip -- directed by Elliott and her longtime GRAMMY® Award-winning collaborator Dave Meyers ("Lose Control," "Work It," "We Run This") -- is streaming now at both the official Missy Elliott and Atlantic Records YouTube channels.

In support of "WTF (Where They From)" Feat. Pharrell Williams, Missy recently joined Instagram (@missymisdemeanorelliott) and revamped her website -- www.Missy-Elliott.com. A preview of the track was also recently featured during ESPN's coverage of Monday Night Football and was announced as the official theme to ESPN's kickoff coverage of the 2015/2016 NBA season.

Missy Elliott is a groundbreaking solo superstar, pioneering producer/songwriter/singer/rapper, and cultural icon. The five-time GRAMMY Award winner - with nominations spanning three decades - has achieved unprecedented success, including U.S. sales in excess of 30 million. Missy's six studio albums (including 2001's landmark "MISS E... SO ADDICTIVE" and 2002's blockbuster "UNDER CONSTRUCTION") have each been RIAA platinum certified or better, marking her as the only female rapper to achieve that milestone accomplishment.

The following half decade plus has only seen Elliott featured on tracks from artists including Ginuwine, Ciara, K. Michelle, Demi Lovato, The Black Keys, J. Cole, G-Dragon, Fantasia, Monica, Busta Rhymes, Jazmine Sullivan, and of course, Katy Perry, with whom she famously teamed up for 2011's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) (Remix)."

Missy officially returned in 2014 with a series of surprise event appearances, joining Pharrell Williams to open the BET Awards with a "Come Get It Bae/Pass That Dutch" mash-up, reuniting with Da Brat and Lil Kim at the Soul Train Music Awards for their 1997 breakthrough, "Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)" - the trio's first live performance together in more than 16 years - and of course her unforgettable performance at 2015's Super Bowl XLIX. Missy joined Katy Perry for the historic happening, wowing 118.5 million viewers - the largest ever audience in Super Bowl history - with a medley of "Get Ur Freak On," "Work It," and "Lose Control." Digital sales skyrocketed in the following days, with both "Get Ur Freak On" and "Work It" returning to the top 40 on Billboard's "Top Singles" chart more than 10 years after their initial successes.

In addition, Elliott has been heard on such recent tracks as Faith Evans' 2014 single, "I Deserve It (Feat, Missy Elliott & Sharaya J)," Jack Ü's 2015 "Take Ü There (Feat. Kiesza) (Missy Elliott Remix)," and most recently, Janet Jackson's "BURNITUP! (Feat. Missy Elliott)."
