Finally, Fans Found Out What Missy Elliot Says In ‘Work It’
The craze of Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ prevails even after 15 years of its release and one of the reason for it is that people have been trying to find out what Missy Elliot has said. She was definitely ahead of her times.
It is pretty tough to match up with the song and getting through the chorus is no easy feat. That’s because Missy makes it sound like some alien language and most of them who tried sing along ended up with their own lyrics.
But, it turns out that it was just another instance of Missy Elliot turning the rap game on its head. Yes, a whole new generation of fans are finally realizing the true depth of Missy Elliott’s genius, thanks to a viral tweet of somebody expressing their shock at finding out the lyric actually does mean something when played backward.
Although, hardcore Missy fans have known this for a while, there were many who were astonished with this line: “Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup i,” which is the prior lyric, “I put my thing down flip it and reverse it,” backward.
That’s right, Missy is literally flipping it and reversing it just as she told us she would!
Here’s how the netizens reacted to it:
