Any news about new Missy Elliott music is great news. Some knowledge in this category arrived Thursday, by way of Timbaland.

The hip-hop producer was speaking at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards and revealed that Elliott has a new single in the works, and it’s a collaboration with an incredible beatmaker in his own right. “I love my sister to death. I know the tabloids love to talk, and I’m going to say it now,” he said, “Her first single is from my cousin—and yes, we are family—Pharrell.” Virginia ties run deep.

Somehow, Elliott and Pharrell have barely crossed career paths. The Neptunes produced “On & On” on Elliott’s last studio album, The Cookbook, which came out 10 years ago this Fourth of July. This latest collaboration was teased in a picture last February. As for when this will come into our lives, Missy only teased it.

But don’t worry about the decade wait for new music. If her show-stopping Super Bowl performance is any indication, whatever comes out will be classic Missy.
