Tweet And Missy Elliott Collaborate Again For “Somebody Else Will”

Tweet and Missy Elliott first collaborated back in 2002 for the steamy Oops (Oh My)and again in 2005 or Turn Da Lights Off. Now, the pair have joined forces once more for Somebody Else Will, off Tweet’s forthcoming album Charlene – her first since It’s Me Again in 2002.

The adrenaline-filled intro immediately features Elliott, with piano trickles filling out the backing instrumentals. Tweet’s sultry voice comes in smoothly, the pair’s opposing tones complementing one another so well. The soulful R&B backing track gives off laid back vibe, while both artists wax lyrical about being in a relationship with someone who doesn’t share the same feelings.

Tweet’s harmonies distribute an important message for anyone dealing with a breakup, or if they are stuck in a relationship with someone who doesn’t appreciate them. “If you don’t love me, you don’t have to love me, someone else can love me right”.

Tweet has spoken about her friendship with Elliott in an interview with The BoomBox. “We’re still sisters,” she said. “We’ve known each other since ‘94 before either of us ‘hit’ the world. We grinded together.”

She continued, elaborating on their relationship: “She could send me something from the studio and know that I’m doing something to it that’ll be fly. There’s no real formula. It’s just family. We all lived in motels and traveled and did everything together so we know what the grind is. That’s a family bond that will never be broken.”

Tweet has been quiet since dropping her last EP in 2013. At the end of last year, she signed onto independent label eOne Music. Elliott, meanwhile, made on hell of a comeback late last year, releasing WTF and Pep Rally. She also won the Innovator Award at the Women In Music ceremony.

Tweet’s album Charlene will be released on February 26th.
