Jan 31

How exciting is it when one of your favorite all-time favorite artists comes out with a new single?

It’s time for another Tunes Tuesday linkup with Steff from Run Steff Run and Kimberly from Kooky Runner.  We’re so excited to have you share your favorite music with us each week!  We’re looking for inspiration for our running and workout playlists and even a “jog” down memory lane as you share your favorite jams!  Since there are 5 Tuesdays this month, the theme this week is wide open!

Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite Missy Elliott songs since she just dropped a brand new single called I’m Better!  I am a HUGE Missy fan so I thought I’d share the love this week!

I’m also joining Marcia, Patty, and Erika for Tuesdays on the Run!

It's time for #tunestuesday - find some great music for your workout playlist with @kookyrunner and @sas_rubel! #runchat #rocknblog Click To Tweet

Missy Elliott -The Legend!

Anyone who knows me should know by now that I’m a HUGE Missy Elliott fan.  I’m not a hip-hop head at all, but I love the way Missy rhymes and is so creative with her lyrics.  And of course,she’s well known for her iconic music videos over the past nearly 20 years!  Who else could make wearing a garbage bag look cool?!  I’m pretty convinced that Missy is the reason I loved Adidas and Pumas in high school.

I was beyond thrilled when Missy made a brief comeback at the 2015 SuperBowl with Katy Perry and I thought we’d finally get a new album!  Now it’s 2017 and we’re still waiting…but I know that it’ll be great when it finally drops and I’ll be first and line to actually BUY it!

Missy has had so many hits over the year.  I love that she is unapologetically Missy!  A great performer, singer, rapper, dancer…what’s not to love?  Haha!  If you’ve never listened to Missy Elliott, I definitely recommend checking her out!  As you can imagine, I have a TON of favorite songs and videos!
