"Best, Best" is a song by American rapper-songwriter Missy Elliott. It was originally supposed to appear on the 2008 recorded version of Elliott's seventh studio album, Block Party and was even released as the album's lead single on June 13, 2008, but since that version of the album was abandoned in the spring of 2009, it will most likely not make an appearance on the album and become a non-album single.

Background and release[edit]

When choosing which song was going to be the lead single off of her seventh studio album, Elliott had plans to release "Act a Fool" as the lead single, but plans were quickly scrapped and "Best, Best" was chosen in its place. The song was first released on Elliott's official website[1] and MySpace[2] on June 13, 2008. The radio edit of the song was included in a Pure Urban Essentials compilation album which was released to the UK iTunes Store on March 30, 2009.[3]


Written and produced by Elliott and Danja, "Best, Best" is a futuristic sounding, mid-tempo Hip-hop and R&B song. Like some of Elliott's other songs it is rapped and sung. After Billboard previewed the song they stated, "Elliott, repeated the last word to every sentence throughout, rhymes, ('We fuss fuss / we fight fight / we make up up / by the night night.')".[4]
