Missy Elliott Celebrates Girl Groups Through the Decades in 'Why I Still Love You' Video

Missy Elliott leads her own girl group, Missy and the Demeanors, in her new video for “Why I Still Love You.”

The clip — co-directed by Missy and Derek Blanks — starts f with a little girl looking at a portrait a Sixties girl group leader (played by Missy) in a museum. Her mother (the R&B singer Monica in a cameo) tells the little girl that Missy and the Demeanors were an iconic girl group throughout the decades, leading into a dream sequence where Missy performs with her backing trio in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, with all the outrageous fashion choices to match.

“Why I Still Love You” was featured on Missy Elliott’s latest EP, Iconology, released this past August. She performed a career-spanning medley her hit songs and iconic videos at the 2019 VMAs, featuring the original backup dancer from the “Work It” video, Alyson Stoner. This week she was announced as a headliner for New York’s Governors Ball festival.
