The MTV VMA nominations came out some days ago
And it was just revealed Missy Elliott is going to be the recipient of this year’s Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs.
The award honours artists for their contributions to the world of music videos and artistes such as Michael Jackson, The Beatles, LL Cool J, Madonna, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Kanye and more outstanding artistes
Missy Elliot has contributed immensely to the music scene and she does deserve this award!!
Because she’s an ‘OG’ and most of us grew up seeing her videos and singing her songs, let’s take a look at some of our fave old skool videos:
You definitely remember this song!!! The video with all of Missy’s swag was sooo entertaining and seriously, if you don’t know the song…you are too young to be reading this!
Get Your Freak On
The cameos from Eve, Ludacris, Timbaland and more was everything and oh…if your Senior High School entertainment didn’t have some dancer doing floor work and the crip walk or Harlem shake to this song o stage, your SHS was boring!!
This song was lit!!!!! It was also always part of the SHS entertainment dance routine starter pack! Fire song!
She’s a B*tch
Missy Elliot was clearly way ahead of her time! What a woman!!
Yeah, she taught us, ladies, how to move to guys like a boss with this song!!!
Ciara – 1,2 Step
This wasn’t her song but her verse made it bang!
Missy used to give us the dopest and creative videos that got us hooked anytime her videos came on TV! She honestly deserves the award and to be honest, it’s been a long time coming!!
