She also collaborated with artists like Aaliyah, 792, Total, and SWV. Her solo career began in 1997 with the release of her debut album, Supa Dupa Fly. Its single “Sock It 2 Me” became a part of the Top 20, while the album itself got the third spot on the Billboard 200, the highest-charting debut for a female rapper.

Elliott eventually rose to international stardom with the release of Miss E… So Addictive, Under Construction, and This Is Not A Test. These albums spawned the hits “Get Ur Freak On,” “One Minute Man,” “4 My People,” “Gossip Folks,” and “Work It.”

Her first extended play, Iconology, came out in 2019. With this success, she’s subbed the Queen of Rap, selling over 30 million records in the U.S. alone.
