I've been enjoying the 2015 resurgence of Missy Elliot.
Get Ur Freak On was used in the This Girl Can campaign.
Missy Elliot stole the halftime show at the Super Bowl. You already knew this, though, right? If you didn't you're probably not from or not currently living in the US or you're one of those people who are trying desperately not to learn the results.
I screamed like a little girl when she popped on stage during the Super Bowl, thrilled to watch her perform. Since I've never seen her live, an unexpected Super Bowl appearance was a major award.
Since the Super Bowl, she's been really fun to observe on Twitter. You can't help rooting for her.
Tbh I didn't realize how much I was missed til last night.I'm crying y'all 4give me I just can't stop thanking God & y'all— Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) February 2, 2015
So, what does this resurgence look like online?
Her most popular tweets are all within 24 hours of the Super Bowl.
She started topping all the iTunes and Google Play Charts.
People affiliated with her are benefiting as she proudly promotes them and credits them for their great work.
She extends her graciousness to her fans.
And everyone online started talking about her. Check out her mentions on Google Trends.
As one of the most prolific female rappers in history, it's really fun to see her get all of this attention.
Let's watch a video to celebrate.
