Block Party is the seventh studio album by American rapper/producer/singer-songwriter Missy Elliott, as of 2011 scheduled to be released late that year or early in the following year. The album was initially to be released in December 2007; additional songs were recorded in spring 2009 and beyond that will replace the majority or all the original tracklisting. Missy Elliott has confirmed that Timbaland will be producing the enitre album, as done on most of her previous albums, and it has been said that the album "feels like old Timbaland and Missy, sounds refreshed...90's sound with a futuristic twist."

Background

Two new Elliott songs, "Ching-A-Ling" and "Shake Your Pom" made their original appearance in the beginning of 2008; the former was the first single for the Step Up 2: The Streets soundtrack with assisted production from the Arkitects while the latter was an adjacent A-side and typical Timbaland and Elliott production collaboration. A groundbreaking combination music video of both tracks publicly premiered on the now-defunct MTV's TRL and BET's 106 & Park TV shows on February 4, and was tagged as 'the first ever in 3D' with a feature from Japanese Hip Hop group U-Min as background dancers; despite this, they were both only moderate hits and internationally peaked in the lower half of all the Top 100 singles ranks; "Ching-a-Ling" was later listed at #69 in Rolling Stone's 100 Best Songs of 2008.

"Best, Best" followed. Plans for its music video and as the album's first single never materialized with it only making a one-week appearance at #94 on the US's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with silent reaction elsewhere.

In June 2009, in an interview with Elle Magazine, Missy Elliott said that she chose the title "Block Party" because it "fits the music the best because it's so upbeat".[3]

On August 18, 2010, Missy announced via her official Twitter account that an upcoming, possibly first single from the album would be titled "Blow Ya Whistle".[4]

Prior to the death of British singer Amy Winehouse, Elliott confirmed she and Timbaland would collaborate with the artist on an untitled track during the 2008 recording sessions. However, it has not been confirmed whether or not the track will be released.[5]

Recorded tracks

Confirmed[6]

  • "Patty Cake" (produced by Timbaland)
  • "Murder She Wrote" (produced by Timbaland)
  • "Pre Madonna/Prima Donna" (produced by Timbaland, co-produced by Missy Elliott)
  • "I'm a Triple Threat" (produced by Timbaland)
  • "Real Hip Hop" (produced by Timbaland)
  • "Warped" (featuring Timbaland, Magoo & Sebastian; produced by Timbaland)[7]
  • "Pin the Tail" (produced by Timbaland, co-produced by Missy Elliott)

Unconfirmed tracks

Notes

  • In early 2008, a demo version of "Fire" leaked via the internet.[16]
  • In summer 2008, an unfinished version of "Talk That Shit" was leaked; months following the incident, Elliott's verses were mixed with the track as the final product, however Elliott confirmed the track was not initially intended for Block Party, but for Timbaland's LP, Shock Value 2, which never made the final cut.
  • In February 2009, an unauthorized snippet of "Put It on Ya" leaked, interfering with labels' decisions for a lead single in replacement of the former contending single, "Best, Best". Briefly reported by the U.K. press, "Put It on Ya" was to see a release in June 2009, along with an accompanying song featuring Danny![21]; however, nothing was released or promoted at its planned date. By October 2009, an unfinished version of the song leaked and was to see an official release in November, however the date was scrapped and Elliott confirmed the song would not see a release on the album.
  • In summer 2009, Elliott confirmed the love ballad, "Rather" would not make the final cut, after an upsetting leak of the record occurred before its finalization.
  • By Thanksgiving 2009, an unfinished version of "Act a Fool" leaked via the internet under the name, "Touch My Body".[22]
  • In late December 2009, a rough unfinished version of "All 4 U" leaked via the internet.[10]
