Faith Evans Reveals Cover Art for Upcoming Biggie Duets Album ‘The King & I’
The album, due out in May, features 25 tracks and features everyone from Busta Rhymes to Lil Kim, Lil Cease, Sheek Louch and Styles P. DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J and Chucky Thompson show up to lend production assistance on the project.
“I remember telling Ms. Wallace [Biggie’s mother] 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 her latest bio, according to Billboard. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [daughter Tyanna] and Ceejay [his son with Evans, Christopher Wallace Jr.], 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.”
The King & I is due out on May 19, two days before Big’s birthday.
