Sooooo on the eve of my birthday, I get a lovely surprise while i'm scrolling though my Facebook feed. My friend in my head and VA's own Missy Elliott is back and drops a new single and new video called "I'm Better" featuring Lamb. Now I must say, I may be using this song as my theme song for the weekend while I'm kicking it with the crew but honestly, the video gives this song SO much life. This is the Missy I miss. She gives you such a new age vibe and the visuals...THE VISUALS! The creativity on this video is bar none! And kudos goes to Sean Bankhead and Missy for the chroreography...JUST SICK! Just check it out and let me know what you think!
