Back in November 2014, Faith Evans tell HipHollywood…When Diddy dropped Duets: The Final Chapter a.k.a “The Biggie Duets” in 2005, it was one of the last time we heard the late Notorious B.I.G. team up with his ex-wife, Faith. Well, now Evans is looking to rekindle that magic with a new duets album.

Here’s an update on that.Faith Evans announced on Friday that “The King & I” will be released on May 19, two days before what would have been the rapper’s 45th birthday.

The Notorious B.I.G. — also known as Biggie Smalls and born Christopher Wallace — was gunned down in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.
According to site, Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G. famously met at a photo shoot in 1994 and were married nine days later. What followed would become one of the most legendary love stories in hip-hop history.Evans has now, 20 years after B.I.G.’s still unsolved murder, created THE KING & I, a new album that tells the story of their life together. The album’s 25 tracks feature newly recorded vocals by Evans melded with vocals by Biggie Smalls, some well-known but also a selection of rare and unheard rhymes from the B.I.G. vault. THE KING & I also includes an impressive list of guest appearances by rap royalty including Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim, Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Snoop Dogg. Evans has also brought on some of the most acclaimed producers in hip-hop, many of which produced some of B.I.G.’s most famous tracks, including DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J, and Chucky Thompson.

“I remember telling Ms. Wallace years ago that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie & Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable,” says Evans. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for Tyanna & Ceejay, I feel it’s my duty to uphold & extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions. This project is my creative reflection of the love we had & the bond we will always have. I’m elated to share this musical journey with our fans!”

THE KING & I will be released on May 19 – just two days before Biggie’s birthday. The album will be available on CD ($18.98), d
