Throw It Back

Yass Queen. 'Iconology' is a riot, and this lead-off single is just pure blissful genius — Missy always gets the interlock between bass and kick perfectly right, and this track is no exception, a juddering rhythmic chassis that will rattle your rear-view mirror in deliciously heavy waves. Missy's verbals are commanding, smeared and slurred in all the right places, and as much touched by Kingston as Chicago — her voice has lost its hysteria, but gained an authority that commands you bow down and worship. Goddess.
