Missy Elliot Influenced By UK Hip-Hop On New Album

June 11, 2008
Missy Elliot Influenced By UK Hip-Hop On New AlbumUS hip-hop star Missy Elliot has revealed that her new album, entitled 'Block Party', will be released in August.

The record, Elliot's first since 2005's 'The Cookbook', features production from Pharrell Williams, T-Pain and Timbaland.

Speaking to Billboard about the record, Elliot said that the album was “more musical and melodic” than her previous releases.

“A lot of my albums are really hip-hop-driven, with tinges of other music genres. But this album is hip-hop, with a sort of U.K. hip-hop sound to it,” she said.

Elliot also spoke about the influence of Timbaland on her career – comparing their relationship to the one once shard between Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones.

"People always ask if we're still working together, and the answer is we will always work together," Elliott said.

"He's always going to be involved, even if it is just on one record. That's my brother. I respect and honour what he says."
