Missy's catalogue gets a major sales boost from the Super Bowl performance.

Well, here’s picture proof that it’s actually happening: Missy Elliott is back in the recording studio with Timbaland!

After a triumphant return during the Super Bowl halftime show with Katy Perry earlier this month, Missy’s been riding high on nearly universal public acclaim for her thrilling comeback performance. And she’s keeping the momentum going: In an interview with Rap-Up last week, the “Work It” rap icon confirmed plans to hop back in the studio with her longtime collaborator.

“Me & @Timbaland bk 2 the drawing board studio dirty beats!,” she wrote in a tweet yesterday, complete with a photo of the two behind the boards.

But don’t get too overexcited just yet. This stuff takes time, after all! “I don’t want to say too much because in this day and time, boy, you say something, they will come back two weeks later like, ‘Where your album at?’,” she explained to Rap-Up.

Mercifully, the wait is over when it comes to hearing new stuff — or at least a little teaser, anyway.

DJ/producer-turned-Snapchat superstar Diplo posted an all-too-brief snippet of a remix of his “Take Ü There” with Skrillex and Kiesza (released as Jack Ü) on Snapchat last night, which features a slick verse from none other than the Supa Dupa Fly legend herself.

Check out the remix teaser below. Are you excited for all this new Missy action? Sound off in the comments.
