A Portsmouth, Virginia, native, Elliott’s debut album, “Supa Dupa Fly,” was released in 1997, the Hall of Fame said.

Her third album, “Miss E…So Addictive,” released in 2001, saw the release of the hit “Get Ur Freak On.” The song won Elliott her first Grammy for best rap solo performance.
The song “Work It,” featured on Elliott’s fourth album “Under Construction,” made history by spending 10 weeks at the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100, according to the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
    Elliott has a long list of songwriter credits, the Hall of Fame says, that include songs for Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah and Jennifer Hudson.
    She also performed at Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 and teamed up with other female artists for the song “This Is For My Girls” as part of Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn initiative.
