Faith Evans preps album of Notorious B.I.G. duets, <em>The King and I</em>

The R&B veteran readies another posthumous Biggie album.

Back in 2005, Bad Boy released Duets: The Final Chapter (aka “the Biggie Duets”), reworking and remixing leftover Notorious B.I.G. verses into duets with Jay-Z, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Bone Thugs N Harmony and more.

Almost a decade later, Biggie’s widow Faith Evans has announced an album of duets with the late-great rapper. Tentatively titled The King and I and due out in the next year, Evans says to “think Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole” when describing album’s tone.
