NEW YORK - Missy Elliott is putting the finishing touches on her next studio album, "Block Party," and eyeing an August release.
The oft-delayed set, originally slated for May, features production from Souldiggaz, Danjahandz, Pharrell, T-Pain, Pointguard and Timbaland.
Tracks on the album include the Jazmine Sullivan-assisted "Like When You Play the Music"; the drum-heavy "Hip-Hop Don't Die"; the sensual "Milk & Cookies," on which Elliot lightheartedly harmonizes about her capabilities in the bedroom; and "Best Best," the set's first single. A video for "Best Best" is in the works.
Elliott said she chose the album title "because there are a lot of dance joints on there. It's one of those albums you can play out in the streets."
