In celebration of these honors, Missy has chose to surprise fans with ICONOLOGY-her last album dropped 14 years ago.

Twenty minutes later, she teased her fans some more, citing a "surprise" while thanking them for their continued support throughout the past year. The surprise release was co-produced by Timbaland and Wili Hendrix coincides with the release of the "Throw It Back" video.

The collection of original music features five tracks and was accompanied by the release of the single/music video, Throw it Back. "I am humbled and grateful", she wrote.

Upon her unexpected comeback, longtime fans of the hip-hop icon took to social media to share their excitement and thoughts about the new EP. She recently collaborated with Lizzo on her track "Tempo", and also joined forces with Ariana Grande, Kelly Rowland and Busta Rhymes, and Ciara.

The reason why this is such a big deal is because Iconology will mark Missy's first album in 14 years!

Missy Elliott is back with the hits! "I'm dropping a collection of new songs".

Days before she receives MTV's Video Vanguard Award, the influential artist has dropped a surprise release titled Iconology. The video embodies everything that Missy is known for with insane special effects and dramatic costumes, including one of her dressed as a moon man as an ode to her 2019 MTV Video Vanguard Award.
