Everybody please bow down to Missy! When Missy appeared at Super Bowl XL after years of silence, we all knew that new music had to be on the way. And thankfully, it happened! Following the amazing release of “WTF,” her latest sure-to-be hit, “Pep Rally,” brings that high energy and incredible rapping that we missed from Misdemeanor so much.
It doesn’t seem like a coincidence, then, that “Pep Rally” was released on Super Bowl Sunday. A year after her big reveal and incredible halftime performance? This was perfect, slick timing! Though the song isn’t necessarily about football, she does make a reference to Super Bowl 50 in the lyrics: And yeah, we get crackin’ like we up at the Super Bowl.” Nice!
This isn’t Missy’s only appearance on Super Bowl Sunday. The rapper, and “Pep Rally” also appear in an Amazon Echo commercial alongside Alec Baldwin! In the hilarious ad, Missy’s at a fancy Super Bowl party thrown by Alec, which Jason Schwartzman and Dan Marino are also attending. When Missy finds out that hundreds of millions of people are watching the commercial, she tells Alec’s Amazon Echo to play “Pep Rally.” Love it!
