Multi-talented superstar Missy Elliott is starting the new year right where she left off...blazing...and garnering three Grammy nominations for songs from her platinum plus album Miss E... So Addictive. The acclaimed song Get Ur Freak On, which has also been cited by Spin magazine as the best single of the year, snagged two nominations for Best R&B Song and Best Rap Solo Performance - with One Minute Man holding down a nomination for Best Short Form Video.

The Grammy nominations cap a record-setting year for Missy, with Miss E... So Addictive notching the highest opening week in history for a female rap star, as well as becoming the second biggest selling female hip hop album of all time, with 1.5 million units sold and counting. The ground breaking video for Get Ur Freak On garnered six MTV Video Music Award Nominations this past August, with Missy winning two MTV Video Awards for her role in the remake of Lady Marmalade.

Missy also achieved a personal best in listening audience for Get Ur Freak On, a multi-format radio smash that attracted close to 140 million in radio audience, ruling the number one spot on both the Billboard R&B charts and Billboard Monitor charts for almost two months in a row, the highest charting single of any female hip hop star this past year.

Missy Elliot's musical partner in crime on Elektra Entertainements Tomb Raider movie soundtrack was U2, who have received a leading eight Grammy nominations including record, album and song of the year. The veteran group's album All That You Can't Leave Behind was virtually assured multiple nominations since Beautiful Day won record and song of the year at last years ceremony.
