The contest closes February 20 with the winner announced on March 2. The winner will receive credit on Missy's album and a $500 "Respect Me" Adidas gift card.

Elliot has already released two tracks from her forthcoming seventh album, "Ching-A-Ling" and "Shake Your Pom Pom," both set to appear on the "Step Up 2 The Streets - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack," out in stores today (Feb. 5) as well.
