Song of the Day #3,987: ‘Get Ur Freak On’ – Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott is one of the top female hip-hop artists of all time, beloved to this day though she hasn’t released an album in 13 years. In just the past few years, she won raves for popping up in both Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show and Michelle Obama’s episode of ‘Carpool Karaoke.’

Back in 2001, she released her third album, the critically-acclaimed and commercially successful Miss E… So Addictive. With Timbaland producing, Missy assembled a collection of sexy, club-friendly raps and sultry R&B ballads.

The most enduring song on So Addictive is ‘Get Ur Freak On,’ a slinky track that turns a Punjabi melody into a lick for the ages. Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop poll named ‘Get Ur Freak On’ the best single of 2001, and Rolling Stone crowned it the 14th best song of the decade.

[Intro]
Kore kara minna de mechakucha odotte
Sawago sawago!
Headbanger, hit me, hit me, hit me, hit me…
Yeah, gimme some new shit
Gimme some new shit
Gimme some new shit
Gimme some new shit

[Verse 1]
Missy be puttin’ it down, I’m the hottest ’round
I told y’all motherfuckers, y’all can’t stop me now
Listen to me now, I’m lastin’ twenty rounds
And if you want me (nigga) then come on, get me now
Is you with me now? Then biggie, biggie bounce
I know you dig the way I sw-sw-switch my style
Holla
People sing around
Now people gather ’round, now people jump around

[Hook]
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on

If you wanna battle me then (nigga) let me know
Holla

People, here I come, now sweat me when I’m done
We got the radio shook like we got a gun

[Hook]
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on

[Verse 3]
Quiet! (Shhh) Hush your mouth, silence when I spit it out
(Hah-choo!) In your face, open your mouth, give you a taste
Holla
Ain’t no stoppin’ me, copy written so don’t copy me
Y’all do it sloppily and y’all can’t come close to me
I know you feel me now, I know you hear me loud
I scream it loud and proud, Missy gon’ blow it down
People gon’ play me now, in and outta town
‘Cause I’m the best around with this crazy style

[Hook]
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on
Go, getcha getcha getcha getcha getcha freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on, go, get your freak on
Go, get your freak on
Go, getcha getcha getcha getcha getcha freak on

[Outro]
Ichi, ni, san, shi
