Missy Elliott and Timbaland preview new song in NYC

On Thursday night, rapper Missy Elliott joined her longtime friend and collaborator Timbaland on stage at the kickoff of Hennessey's "White Rabbit" launch event kickoff to perform a new, as yet untitled song. Timba had been doing a set for the wildly enthusiastic crowd, performing hits he'd worked on such as Justin Timberlake's "Sexyback" and Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous Girl," before Missy rocked the stage to even more raucousness.

The new song samples Run DMC's "Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse)," and it is reported to be called "Triple Threat," though nothing has been confirmed. It's unclear whether this particular song will appear on Missy or Timba's album, but it's great to hear the two are making music together again!

To read on, and to check out more video of the performance, check out Billboard and Rolling Stone.  In the meantime, check out this short clip:
