It's an undisputed fact that Missy Elliot's 'Work It' is one hundred per cent of a banger. But it's also a fact that it's a really tricky song to cover.
Not for one super fan, who's completely and utterly owned it.
In a now viral Facebook video, which has been watched more than 7 million times, Mary Halsey, AKA 'Funky White Sister', can be heard covering the track in a word perfect rap.
It wasn't long before the incredible performance came to the legendary singer's attention.
Taking to Twitter, she said:
