News about a surprising new collaboration album has surfaced.
In a interview R&B songstress Faith Evans reveals that an album she has been working on is in the “finishing stages” with her late husband The Notorious B.I.G.
“Today, if he was alive, I know, ultimately, we would’ve done something like this,” Evans says during an interview with The Dame Dash Show. “But the way the stuff has come together, and the way I’m using his vocals, it’s giving the stuff new life. It’s totally different.”
Prior to the passing of The Notorious B.I.G., Evans’ made appearances on her husband’s 1994 single “One More Chance”. She also teamed with Puff Daddy in 1997 for the “I’ll Be Missing You” tribute single to the late rapper.
The album titled The King & I may feature people talking about their interactions with Biggie Smalls, whether through transitional pieces on the project or interludes, Evans says. It will also feature clips from some of his interviews. The target date will be in September. Evans suggests plans on how she’ll present material from the collection. “We actually are in development with a hologram, but I don’t necessarily know to what extent I’m gonna perform with it…. But that depends on a lot of things.”
Evans also says she wrote a stage play about her relationship with Biggie based on the content of her book, 2008’s Keep the Faith: A Memoir.
