Critics’ Takes:

“For each one of us, there are images that will forever be burned in our memories, and, for folks of a certain age, one of them is Missy Elliott in that blow-up trash-bag jumpsuit.” – Kristen Zwicker, TimeOut

“While videos for songs like “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It” and “Lose Control” would all be hailed as influential and captivating, Missy’s road to being a music video trailblazer began with “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” her debut single as a solo artist.” – Preezy Brown, Vibe
