Missy Elliott has been inducted into the 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame.
After receiving the news, she took to Twitter to congratulate the other songwriter inductees as well as those who were nominated:
"I want to CONGRATULATE all the AMAZING songwriters who have been inducted into the 2019 Song Writers Hall of Fame... also those who were nominated because their body of work is AMAZING," she tweeted.
John Prine, Dallas Austin, and Cat Stevens were also inducted. The legendary Nile Rodgers announced the news on CBS' Anthony Mason.
"To me, it's important to have equality. I've written with a lot of women songwriters, but not nearly enough, and that's sort of like my secret goal. That's why when you told me, Missy Elliott, I'm like, blown away -- she's one of my favorite writers of all time."
Missy will be formally inducted at New York's Marriott Marquis Hotel on June 13.
