Missy Elliott was crowned with MTV’s Video Vanguard VMA over the summer in recognition of her countless iconic videos over the decades. The rapper still has plenty of tricks up her sleeve, however, as she’s proven in her new clip for “DripDemeanor”.
Directed by past collaborator Derek Blanks (Ciara, T-Pain), it’s another bold, eye-catching visual that sees Missy swapping between bondage attire and outfits decorated in luminescent paint, all while striking moves alongside a choreographed troupe. As we’ve come to expect from the veteran hip-hop star, things take a turn for the fantastical; at certain points, her head becomes a video game and even a spinning dessert tray. Toward the end, she rightfully takes her throne as Queen of Music Videos.
Watch Missy work it in the clip below. “DripDemeanor” is off her Iconology project from August.
In addition to accepting her prestigious Video Vanguard award, Missy threw down an epic medley performance of her hits at the 2019 VMAs.
