The much-buzzed-about British R&B girl group FLO has released their highly-anticipated single, “Fly Girl,” which features Missy Elliott.
Not only is the rapper featured on the song, “Fly Girl” also samples and interpolates her 2002 hit song, “Work 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,” the group, consisting of Stella Quarsema, Renée Downer and Jorja Douglas, said in a statement. “It’s quite literally a perfect fusion of old school meets modern day R&B, 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. I remember a few of their fans sent me clips of their performances, and I immediately felt the authentic ’90s vibe,” added Elliott. 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 Gir’ 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.”
