Missy Elliott is about to get her ROK on. According to Billboard, the rap pioneer is the latest addition to KCON 2013, the K-Pop convention held in Los Angeles August 24 and 25. Elliott will take the stage on the 25th for a performance that will be filmed for for South Korean TRL-type show, M! Countdown.
Billboard reports that Elliott will likely join K-Pop sensation G-Dragon, leader of the boy band BIGBANG, for a new song. In June, G-Dragon’s label announced that the Elliott would feature on the K-Pop star’s upcoming solo album, due out August 30. The track names that will feature “Chugalug” and “NiLiria.”
While we’re still waiting for Elliott’s own 2013 album Block Party, it has been confirmed that Elliott will also be guesting on the new Faith Evans album, as well as a rumored appearance on Beyoncé’s now-delayed fifth studio album.
When last we heard G-Dragon, he was dropping the “Harlem Shake”-indebted song, “Go.” Watch that track below.
