"1, 2 Step" began the long-lasting relationship between Ciara and Missy. The song appeared on the Goodies album, and the two would go on to collaborate on Ciara's "Work" and "Level Up" remix and Missy's "Lose Control."
Missy was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Nov. 8, and Ciara gave a heartfelt speech during the ceremony. "Somehow, I got lucky enough to have Missy Elliott as my mentor and big sister. She made it seem like anything was possible, and she still makes me feel that way today," Ciara said, adding, "She paved the way for me and many others that followed. There is no one like Missy. No one like Missy. She oozes with boundless creativity, a visionary, the epitome of true artistry, strength, integrity, and grit. She created genre-blurring sounds of a modern hit-maker that continues to defy space and time."
