    Sometimes, an artist will drop a hint as to the sound/look/feel of the next era. I think my favorite example of such a thing is this right here. "Hit 'Em Wit Da Hee" was the final single from Missy Elliot's axis-shifting debut Supa Dupa Fly and its video sports a mix from the Can't Hardly Wait soundtrack. This version has a darker vibe than the original, the "Joga" sample at 3:11 points to the sound of Elliot's second album, Da Real World: a Homogenic-like obsession with beats and strings filtered through Timbaland's Afrofuturist lense, marinated in a sci-fi-noir flavor a la The Matrix.



    What are your favorite songs that foreshadow a new era?

    Not specifically for an album but I feel that this song from 1968 foreshadowed the entire disco decade to come:




    about more modern examples of a song it could be Madonna's Bedtime Story foreshadowing her ROL era
