Hear that? It's the sound of you singing 'I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN' to yourself over and over for the rest of the day. Why? Because I'm dropping another #TBT on you, and Missy Elliott 's ' The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) ' is the proud owner of an Ann Peebles-sampled hook that just won't quit. Today is the first day of spring ( vernal equinox for all my science folk) which, for those of us on the East Coast, means a lot of rain in our near future. Thus, the song selection. (Well, that, and Hype Williams joint in this week's #TBT.

The vid starts off with one of the most audacious fashion statements ever to grace a music video (and I'm saying this in a world post- Lady Gaga 's ' Bad Romance ' #alexandermcqueen). Missy posts up against Hype's fisheye lens in a black patent nylon, blow-up jumpsuit accessorized with matching shoes and gloves and a glitter-covered helmet-meets-sunglasses situation. (Again, brilliantly recreated on all over again .

And then there are the Supa Dupa Fly Girls (see what I Miley is #blessed ), but couple it with a yellow raincoat, wheat-colored Timbs with scrunched tube socks and wear it with a pack of other girls dressed the same, and this quickly becomes the coolest outfit anyone's ever seen.

Missy does her own yellow outfit: a jacket and long shorts set worn with matching oversized shades and a lime green tee. Color-coordinating was everything in the '90s. (See also: TLC .)

Because I know you were curious, here's a GIF of her dancing, so you can see that she wore the look with green socks and yellow kicks.

At one point she does leave the cylindrical indoor set and ventures outdoors. *BEEP BEEP. Who got the keys to the Jeep? VRRRRRRRRRRRRROOM* Missy takes her all-red-everything sunnies and lacquered baby hairs to the beach by way of an open top Hummer. She's also wearing a black leather bomber jacket, which isn't my first choice for beach attire, but to each her own, right?

Once at the beach, she's in more leather. An all-white leather jacket and pants set worn with matching golf gloves, a cobalt tee and similarly blue sneakers. Again, a little less breathable than what I wear to the sand, but who am I to argue with a queen?

Our time outside with Missy is short-lived, though. She finds herself on the hilltop of an outdoor-looking indoor set with a cartoonish quality very akin to Busta Rhymes ' ' Chanel shades, she's predating two #CCcertified trends of the past year: Chanel suspenders and the Chanel chain belt .
