Missy Elliott

Timbaland set off Labor Day weekend with his super friends Missy Elliott and Nas. The mega-producer hosted the launch of LeSutra Sparkling Liqueur during Fontainebleau BleauLive in Miami Beach on Saturday night.

Sporting a TRUKFIT hat, Missy joined her partner-in-rhyme on her classics “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lose Control,” and performed her two new singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat,” which she debuted earlier this year at a private show in New York. Both songs are scheduled to premiere this week and will appear on her upcoming seventh album, tentatively titled Block Party.

“One liter, two liter, in my cup, margarita/ Roll up in my two-seater/ I’ma pretty diva, call me señorita,” raps Missy on “Triple Threat.”

She also sent out prayers to Chris Lighty’s family and her Violator crew. Check out some footage below.
