Missy Elliott has been laying low for the pass several years, so when she pops up to assist her peers on music, you know it's something she's definitely feeling. On "How Ya Doin?", she joins British girl group and X-Factor winners, Little Mix, for the Envogue-inspired tune blessed with a sample of De La Soul's 1991 classic "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)".
On the soulful groove, Missy added some spice spitting, "Imma change my number, I'mma keep it distant/ Now you want me back/ You wanna pay a visit/ You get this dial tone…click click!" A video has been shot and will arrive soon.
Little Mix member Jesy Nelson stated before the song's release, "We honestly can’t believe Missy is on our song! She’s been one of our biggest idols forever – it’s incredible. As soon as we thought there might be a chance she’d appear on the track we did literally everything we could to make sure it happened."
Little Mix will re-release their debut album, DNA, on May 28 in the U.S. via Simon Cowell's Syco Records. The set will also feature a collaboration with TLC's T-Boz.
