With word spreading about her working on a new album, fans are literally on the edge of their seats waiting for her to surprise them with something.

The last time we saw Missy on stage was for the halftime show for Super bowl 2015, where younger viewers were clueless as to who she was. Misdemeanor didn’t have to worry about that this time around. Since then, buzz has been surrounding Missy’s upcoming album with Pharrell. There no word yet on a release date, but we hope its soon.
