Missy Elliott performs onstage during the 2018 Essence Festival -Day 2 at Louisiana Superdome on July 7, 2018 in New Orleans. 

Nearly 16 years after "Work It" hit the radio, Missy Elliott finally knows how Halle Berry -- who sort of gets a shout-out on the rapper's track -- feels about it.    

It all began on Thursday (Aug. 2), when fellow artist Ciara gave props to Elliott on Instagram and Berry left a comment: "YES."     

Elliott was thrilled, sharing a screenshot of the moment on Twitter.    

"So humbled when u see @halleberry comment under your rap," she wrote. "she’s so Legendary!!!!"   

   

Berry shared some love back at her on Saturday (Aug. 4), making one of the rapper's classic lyrics (that just so happens to mention the actress) a hashtag: "Takes one to know one, so in love with your work and creativity, @MissyElliott !! #LivingLegend #HalleBerryPosta."

In 2002's "Work It," the song in reference, Elliott raps: "Let's get drunk, that's gonna bring us closer/ Don't I look like a Halle Berry poster?"

"Now after all these years I always wondered did @halleberry ever hear the line in 'Work It' when I said don’t I look like a Halleberry Posta I said I know Halle like hell Nah but just to see her hashtag that made my week! Thank you Legend," Elliott quipped on Twitter.
