Even though I wasn’t into hip hop at the time, Elliott’s debut single still happened to be my introduction proper to her catalogue of consistently innovative and excellent music. The beat is infectious, her singing fantastic, and production (by Timbaland) delightful. The music video by Hype Williams is filled with equally creative, enjoyable, and amazingly still iconic.

Over the years, I’ve slowly collected all her albums. The genre honsetly isn’t my favorite and I don’t listen to it anywhere near as much as others, but when I do, Elliot is often the first I think of. In no small part to “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)”.
