Timbaland Releases New Missy Elliott Track “Swat Dat Fly”

Responding to fans who want to know why he didn’t release a track with longtime collaborator Missy Elliott on his Shock Value II project, Timbaland (via an uploaded vlog) explains that the album was “a rush project… it wasn’t time yet and I didn’t really get the match-up. Had too much pop… I wanted to even it out with pop and urban… Maybe that’s why I didn’t put Missy on it, ’cause it was mostly a pop album.” The rapper-producer then opened up his vault to play an old tune of Missy’s that he produced back in the day, “Swat Dat Fly.” Listen below.

Over some distracting orgasm moans and a wobbly, minimalist beat (with a synth noise that sounds annoyingly enough like a real fly buzzing around our heads), “Swat Dat Fly” is as quirky as anything Missy has released before.

“Call me a chubby chick, slim and narrow / But I aim for your brains like a bow and arrow,”raps Missy, before namechecking Ciara’s “My Goodies.” Yeah, this is an old one. We’re much more looking forward to checking out the tracks off Elliott’s upcoming, endlessly-delayed Block Party LP. We’re still waiting for the album’s lead single “Blow Ya Whistle” to drop, Missy. Any day month year now.

What do you think — should “Swat Day Fly” have made the cut for Timba’s Shock Value II?
