Missy, who will also appear on upcoming albums by TLC and Whitney Houston, is working behind the scenes and in the studio on a tribute album for her best friend, the late Aaliyah, as well.
“You going to, for sure, hear a new Aaliyah album” she said. “Right now we’re working on getting the artists together.”
“You know, she has a lot of songs she didn’t put on the Aaliyah album, so hopefully we’re going to get the artists to come in and sing the other verse on a song and keep one of her verses so it’ll be like a collaboration thing.”
“I don’t have an exact time frame on it because it’s a lot of artists we’re trying to get for it, but it’ll be soon.”
As for her new solo project, ‘Under Construction’, Missy said she’s pleased that the opus’ first single, ‘Work It’ has become an even bigger smash that her last LP’s ‘Get Ur Freak On’. Jay-Z, TLC, Beyonce Knowles, Ludacris, Method Man, Ms. Jade and Timbaland all helped Missy erect the album, which drops on the 12th of November.
