Melissa Arnette Elliott, better known as Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott, is an American rapper, dancer and record producer. Once nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, raised an interesting point. Melissa Elliott tweeted on Monday, expressing how she was interested in directing music videos.
Claiming artist trusted her in writing songs for them but wouldn’t take a chance on her directing a video for them. Furthermore, stating she would jump at the chance of directing a music video.
Just like artist trusted me to write songs for them I wonder what artist would take a chance on me directing a video for them
Guess who was one of the first to reply the tweet? The American singer and songwriter who is also no stranger to iconic visual herself, Janelle Monáe. At first, Janelle Monáe responded with an emoji and a “one in a million word”. A finger emoji pointing to a text, “Me” was the response Melissa Elliott got.
This is where things started to get all exciting. Already, fans were going crazy at the possibility of these two creative and dynamic geniuses collaborating. Melissa Elliott tweeted again saying…
NOW JANELLE GUUUURRRL you know yo videos already be FIYAH STAWP PLAYING! but shiiii I’d love toyour videos already be NEXT LEVEL SH!T!
First Monáe joked that she was already on set and waiting for her director. In addition that her hair and makeup already done.
I’m already on set . hair and makeup done . 2 hrs early . You are THE MASTER TEACHER of visuals . This would be a DReAM . I fucking love you QUEEN ! Let’s go !!!
Then Tessa Thompson, who stars in Monáe’s “Make Me Feel” video, said she wanted in on the project too. Of course, putting more heat to the already flaming collaboration.
Wait. Can I be in this one too tho . I’ll be an extra and cater it.
In conclusion, we know whatever Elliott is going to produce would be a big bang no doubt. Therefore, with fingers crossed. Of course, we would just have to sit and wait till it becomes reality. Hoping it might come up eventually, sooner than we expect, rather than later.
