We Finally Know What Missy Elliott Was Saying In "Work It"
Is it worth it? Let me work it. I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it. Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup. Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht.and and can you robin and the sherwood hoodies singing all over the world
The hit single was released way back in , and the revelation that the confusing section of the chorus isn't really gibberish has blown everyone's minds. The mumbling bit comes right after Missy sings: "Is it worth it, let me work it, I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it". That's right, she raps the entire phrase backwards, and is actually saying : "Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup I". When you realise the mumbling in Missy Elliott's "Work It" , is actually "I put my thing down flip it and reverse it" In fact, she sings the phrase four times during the chorus, and fans were certainly shocked by the revelation. And danielajh added: "15 yrs to realize she really did put her thing down, flip it, and reverse it". But others were less than impressed by the excited reaction.
Missy Elliot turned the tables on macho male rappers with this in-your-face expression of female sexuality. Not only is it Missy's biggest hit, but it also popularized the term "badonkadonk," so… there's something else to be proud of. Also, in case you're wondering, that weird part in the chorus that sounds like gibberish is "I put my thing down, flip it, and reverse it"… played backwards. See what she did there? Take an ever closer look at the video. We have no doubt that you've heard Missy herself rap these lines, as it was all over the place back when it came out. Maybe you also caught the show Work It , which most likely takes its title from the song.
We apologize for the inconvenience...
MissyElliott you're a genius pic. MissyElliott literally reversed it: "I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.
