Block Party is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Missy Elliott, scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2010. The album's release was initially intended for December of 2007, additional songs were recorded for the project in spring of 2009 replacing the majority of the album's intended tracklisting. Confirmed features include production by Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, Danny![3], Danja, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, Bloodshy & Avant and The Arkitects.

Background

On January 9, 2008, Elliott's official website announced the release of "Ching-a-Ling" as lead single confirming that the track will feature on the upcoming studio album. Another song called "Shake your Pom-Pom" will appear on "Block Party". In June 2008, a song called "Best Best" leaked on the internet and was said to be the lead single of "Block Party". The album has been delayed several times since its initial scheduled release date in December 2007. This album will be her first since The Cookbook back in 2005, ending a musical hiatus of 5 years.

In June 2009, in an interview with Elle Magazine, Missy Elliott stated that the album would be released in Autumn 2009, but was eventually pushed back a 4th time to January of 2010. When asked about the album appearances, Elliott replies that "there are a lot of great collaborations on the record, but I can only give one away right now, and that’s Lil Wayne ... He has a creativeness about him that I love." She continues that she chose the title "Block Party" because it "fits the music the best because it’s so upbeat".[4]

In October 2009, "Put It on Ya" leaked via internet. The song was at first slated to be released sometime in July 2009 as the lead single, and then later pushed back to November 2009. However, both planned release dates were scrapped, and Elliott has not spoken on which single she plans to release as a lead single.

In February 2010, singer Monica, spoke to Rap-Up magazine about the status of the album: "She’s working really hard on it, she’s got some crazy music on there, some stuff I was trying to steal for my record. I got a couple of things that she let me take, but she’s working really hard on [her album]".[5].
