Last night (April 5), Missy Elliott and Timbaland reunited on stage to perform a new song at Hennessey's 'White Rabbit' campaign launch event in NYC. The untitled cut samples lyrics from Run D.M.C.'s "Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse)," according to HipHopDX.
After being introduced by Erykah Badu, Timbaland hyped up the crowd with songs such as Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous Girl" and Justin Timberlake's "Sexyback." Minutes later, Missy Elliott hit the stage decked in bedazzled Jeremy Scott Adidas gear. A signature look of Missy's. French dancers, Les Twins, performed alongside Missy when performing "Get Your Freak On" and "Work It."
Timbo closed his set with the sounds of Aaliyah and Jay-Z after Missy stepped off the stage. Badu followed suit. The singer closed the night with classics including, "Love of My Life," On and On," and more.
Last month (March 2011), Timbaland teased a new track, featuring Missy Elliott, during the Breeding Ground showcase at this year's SXSW festival. Timbo's untitled album, due this year, also features guest spots by Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Rick Ross and more.
