Missy Elliott‘s appeal is kind of funny. She’s not the best lyricist around, but her beats are always fun and ampy and her videos are one big shroomfest. None of that’s changed with “Ching-A-Ling”.
Check out the video below. Those damn kids are gone. They were cute while they lasted, but her new dancers are way fun. Shorts and striped knee socks, however, have not gone out of style for her. Good thing Missy can pretty much do whatever she wants, but the liberal-arts-university-educated part of me is a little put off by four Asians being the first thing you see in a video for a song that goes, “Ching ching…” SMH.
