The new single, "I'm Better" is the first since 2015's hypnotic Pharrell-assisted "WTF." The video is a colorful collage of dancing scenes with Missy giving us her flow and a friendly reminder of her signature harmonies. The production takes a modern approach with co-production by Lamb, who also handles the chorus. We are long overdue for a Missy album, but over the last two years, she has made it clear a full record is coming soon. Between collaborating with Timbaland and Tweet for the latter's album and two videos and a documentary, a Missy takeover seems closer than ever before. This is certainly the good news we needed! Here's to more Missy in 2017!
