At the end of January, Roc Nation confirmed that J. Cole was set to film a video for his single “Nobody’s Perfect,” with Missy Elliott and the two stars linked up in Los Angeles on Thursday (February 9) to put things in motion. The Colin Tiley-directed video will be the fourth clip released from the North Carolina rapper’s debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story (following “Work Out,” “Lost Ones” and “Can’t Get Enough.”)
Photos from the video shoot surfaced on Friday, showing Missy Elliott decked out in a studded black leather jacket and full makeup. She clearly enjoyed her work on the set, tweeting to J. Cole, “@JColeNC Thank u 4 having me @ ya video! Means a lot and I had lots of fun!!! Thank u again!” J. Cole, ever gracious, responded with “@MissyElliott you the Queen! You blessed me tonight! Thank you.”
Missy Elliott hasn’t released a project since 2005’s The Cookbook, but Timbaland recently told MTV News that both he and Elliott would be dropping new solo projects this summer. “Me and Missy are both coming with our albums at the same time, and it will be in June,” Timbo said from his home in Miami last week.
Last year Missy shot down rumors that her battle with Graves’ disease had hindered her work, and Timbaland assured us that their comeback was in full swing. “I just don’t want to move too ahead of her and she don’t want to move too ahead of me,” Timbaland added. “So we’re both doing it at the same time.”
