Missy Elliott and Katy Perry: 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)'
We're quite big fans of hip-hop heroine Missy Elliott: not only does she get her rap on without stripping down to her skimpies and writhing around like a toytown prostitute, she's also got a great ear for a pop tune. So we were excited when we heard that she'd done a remix of Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)', expecting it to be a thrilling mish-mash of pop and hip-hop tropes, as well as super sharp rhyming.
However it's nothing of the sort, and is in fact pretty disappointing. Not only is the song barely touched, Missy only appears at the beginning and end of the track, tacked on as though she was an afterthought, rather than the star of the piece. Bah, we expected better from you Missy. Yes we did.
