Missy Elliott approves of ‘funky white sister’ performing ‘Work It’

EAST GREENWICH, Rhode Island — Admit it — when Missy Elliott’s “Work It” comes on the radio you sing along. Or at least try to.

It’s a tricky song that requires singing some of the lyrics backwards.

It’s no problem for Mary Halsey.

**WARNING: Video includes some explicit lyrics

She posted a video of her singing the song at a park in East Greenwich, Rhode Island back on July 29th.

It’s now been viewed more than 6 million times — including by Missy Elliott herself.

Halsey nailed every lyric and even included some booty-shakin’ dance moves.

“I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER,” Elliott, who released the song back in 2002, tweeted of Halsey’s performance.

“She straight killed ‘Work It’ sound effects & all,” Elliott wrote. “I love it.”

Elliott also noted the woman dancing in the background while eating what appeared to be ramen noodles

According to her Facebook page, Halsey, 47, is a recreation assistant at a nursing home.
