Missy Elliott Wants that Nelly Furtado ‘Get Your Freak On Remix’ Officially Released

The millennials are vibing as NPR released Nelly Furtado's Tiny Desk Concert on their YouTube page on May 24, 2024! We hear amazing renditions of her hit's "I'm Like A Bird", "Promiscuous" and Maneater with stories about the songs in between. But then she talked about the story behind the now infamous appearance on the remix of the Missy Elliot hit "Get Your Freak On". Yes, you heard that correctly. The song never had an official release and currently can't be found on any streaming service but I remember hearing this remix everywhere in the 2000s. After hearing Furtado crush it live (She's still got it btw) fans on X are requesting the official release, including the rap legend herself: Missy Elliot. Missy gave kudos to Nelly Furtado's performance like the rest of us and when asked to officially release the remix you took matters into her own hands. I mean she is Missy Elliot so I imagine her tagging the source can lead to results. Listening to Nelly Furtado sing this reminds me of the old school days of mixed CDs with the latest songs that you would trade in the lunchroom. Spotify & Apple Music didn't exist. Thank you Missy & Nelly Furtado for your contributions to my nostalgia Nelly Furtado's Tiny Desk Concert SET LIST: “Say It Right” “Explode” “Powerless (Say What You Want)” “Promiscuous” “All Good Things (Come To An End)” “I'm Like A Bird” “Get Ur Freak On (Remix)” “Love Bites” “Eat Your Man” “Give It To Me” “Maneater” My review on this complete Tiny Desk is that it is Grade A. Furtado disappeared from the public eye and raised a family which I can't blame her but the game needs a powerhouse like her back full force. Will it lead to a tour? I hope so!
