Missy Elliott recently showed her appreciation for Ciara by hopping on her “Level Up” remix, but her new favourite viral video has unexpectedly arrived from a white lady at a Rhode Island picnic.
Mary Halsey shared a video of herself performing “Work It” at an outdoor karaoke party in Goddard Park Facebook, and Missy herself is among the more than 7 million people who have viewed it so far.
Elliott shared a clip of the performance on Twitter, praising Halsey’s chops and declaring: “I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER.”
She also shouted out Halsey’s “home girl from da hood that keep tip toeing in the background with a plate of food.”
Despite the multiple crying-with-laughter emojis the rapper used on Twitter, she added that Halsey “straight killed” her rendition of the track, “sound effects and all.”
See Elliott’s tweet below, and watch Halsey’s full video beyond that.
