Produced primarily by Timbaland and Missy herself, Da Real World was Missy’s most street-savvy album, saturated with sexual innuendos and underground phrases that became common household statements. Fearing the sophomore slump, Missy changed the original name of the album She’s A Bitch for more commercial acceptance; and it worked. Da Real World is currently a double platinum classic.

Memorable singles from the album include “All In My Grill,” the salacious “Hot Boyz”(Remix) featuring Eve, Nas, and Lil Mo, and the former title track “She’s A Bitch”.
