After last week’s teaser, Diplo and Skrillex (aka Jack U) have unleashed Missy Elliot’s remix of their Kiesza-assisted single, “Take U There.” The new version is much like the original, except that it adds Missy’s powerful and distinctive vocals.
With her spectacular Super Bowl performance and now this remix, we can’t help but wonder if Missy is set for a comeback this year.
