It’s official. After nearly two years of production, Faith Evans is ready to drop her joint album with late husband, The Notorious B.I.G.

The highly anticipated projected titled The King & I features collaborations with Jadakiss, Snoop Dogg, Lil Cease and  Lil’ Kim among others. Two singles, “When We Party” and “NYC,” were released Friday morning, but the full album won’t drop until May 19, two days before what would have been Big’s 45th birthday.

“I remember telling Ms. Wallace [the rapper’s mother] years ago that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie and Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable,” Evans said in a statement. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for Tyanna [his daughter] & Ceejay [his son by Evans], I feel it’s my duty to uphold and extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions.”

“This project is my creative reflection of the love we had and the bond we will always have,” she added. “I’m elated to share this musical journey with our fans!”

Two years ago, we sat down with Faith, who revealed exclusive details about the project. “It’s something that I have been thinking about doing for many, many years.

Girl Power Prevails At The 2017 American Music Awards

Published

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
