Missy Elliott's halftime performance has her dominating iTunes

Monday February 2nd, 2015

Missy Elliott joined Katy Perry at the Super Bowl halftime show, and now her hits are seeing a resurgence one day later.  

Elliott sang parts of three of her most popular songs at the performance (which can be seen in full here): "Get Ur Freak On", "Work It" and "Lose Control."

So many people went out to buy them, all three songs reached top 10 in iTunes on Monday.

It's a good reminder of the power of performing at the halftime show -- even as a special guest -- and it certainly helps when the game posts the highest overnight rating in Super Bowl history.
