Missy Elliot celebrates Destiny's Child Get On the Bus 10 years after its release
12 March 2018
Missy Elliot and Destiny's Child go way back. Like to the very beginning of the group back. All these years later, she hasn't forgotten the importance of the group and she wants the world to know it.
Taking to Twitter Saturday (10 Mar.), she gave a shout to "Get On the Bus," the Timbaland-produced track which she wrote, by sharing a clip of Beyonce's verse in the music video.
"Where's my Destiny's Child fans @? y'all will know this! Another joint I wrote & @Timbaland on da beat! this 1 of da HARDEST BEATS EVER," she tweeted, with fire emoji to sign off. She goes on to reveal that she was scared that DC wouldn't be into the style of her bouncy flow. History, of course, tells a different story.

"Get On the Bus" is taken off the Why Do Fools Fall in Love soundtrack released in 1998. One fan appreciated the track but offered to shine a light on some new blood. "For the new generation can you guys work with @JunesDiary please," the fan tweeted. Missy was in a responsive mood and shot back with, "I think @junesdiary Supa dope of course."
And for the fans who weren't too educated in Destiny's Child history - one said, "Wow. I actually have never seen this. Must be their first album & didn't hit as big" - Missy helped them along. "No it wasn't released as a single at the time just only a video shot for the soundtrack that's why." The song would later be released as part of the international edition of The Writing's on the Wall, Destiny's Child second studio album.
