Missy Elliott is showing love to Prince by showing off her new purple mane.
The legendary artist herself rocked her new lavender locks with two front braids and purple eyeliner to complement the entire look while dancing along to the lyrics “Until the end of time, I’ll be there for you” from “Adore,” from Prince’s 1987 Billboard 200 top 10 double album Sign “O” the Times.
“Saaaang Prince,” she captioned the clip Monday with a raised-hands emoji. “Purple always been my favorite color.”
She showed off a purple pixie cut earlier this year in another Instagram video, which she also wore during her cameo in Bree Runway’s “ATM” music video.
In a 2016 interview with CBC Music’s The Strombo Show, the 50-year-old artist hinted that Prince had sent her music for a potential collaboration after they first met in Los Angeles. Why hasn’t it come out yet, you might ask? Because Missy misplaced it. “He had sent me some stuff, music of his, and I moved and I could never find that music,” she said, as reported by The Guardian. “Yesterday, I was sitting there saying, ‘I have to go to my house, in my storage space, and find this music.'”
