FLO link up with Missy Elliott for new track ‘Fly Girl’

It’s the girl group’s first new bop of the year.

Fast rising girl band FLO have teamed up with Missy Elliott for their brand new single ‘Fly Girl’. “Our Fly Girl is the embodiment of strength, empowerment, attitude, and community,” FLO explain. “She/he/they/them/ are not shaped by what society deems beautiful or acceptable, but a member of an inclusive environment that accepts and embraces femininity in all its glory. We are hardworking independent fly girls who get the job done, and have fun while doing it.” “Fly Girl is all about confidence, good vibes and feeling your best. It’s a lively, feel good song that still incorporates clever lyrics and fire vocals, if we do say so ourselves. It’s quite literally a perfect fusion of old school meets modern day rnb, with a nod to and feature from the original fly girl Missy Elliott herself. We love it and are so happy to be putting out a song that can hopefully make whoever plays it feel confident and most importantly, FLY.” “Working with FLO has been nothing less than amazing,” Missy Elliott adds. “I remember a few of their fans sent me clips of their performances, and I immediately felt the authentic 90’s vibe. I loved the fact they all sang lead so well—great vocal control—so when I was asked to be a part of the ‘Fly Girl’ record, it was a no brainer. They used the inspiration from my song ‘Work It’, and I felt they did it justice. I enjoyed it and I believe they have a long, great career ahead of them.” Check out ‘Fly Girl’ below.
