    Late last night, the iconic music visionary dropped a surprise EP titled Iconology, marking the first time she's released a collection of songs since her 2005 album The Cookbook.

    I guess she wasn't satisfied with simply snatching our wigs, cuz Missy promptly plucked all of our actual edges by dropping a brand new music video too!!!

    Missy confirmed on IG that these cheerleaders ARE, in fact, using Afro wigs instead of some basic ol' pom-poms.

    People stopped gagging long enough to tweet out some major words of appreciation and celebration:

    MISSY! MISSY! MISSY! @MissyElliott! THIS CHOREO! THE DOUBLE DUTCHING WITH BRAIDS! LEGENDARY SHIT ONLY! THE QUEEN OF MUSIC VIDEOS! PERIOD! #ThrowItBack

    .@MissyElliott is STILL ahead of her time. This whole #ICONOLOGY project

    At the end of the day(literally) @MissyElliott is STILL the queen! Nobody is fuckin with her visually and now we just wait for Monday when she's gonna tear the @vmas stage DOWN! STREAM #ICONOLOGY for clear skin

    But the best tweet has to go to Missy herself who confirmed that she's got even MORE tracks coming in the near future!

    Until then, check out Missy at the VMAs next Monday where she'll be performing and receiving her LOOOOONG overdue Video Vanguard Award.
