Faith Evans has unveiled the cover for her long-awaited Biggie duets album titled, The King & I. Dressed in all black, the singer poses confidently on the cover. She has one hand resting on her waist, as she stands in front of a mural of her late hubby. The black-and-white photo is accentuated by gold graffiti and leathering.
The project features the highly-anticipated collaboration between Faith, Biggie, and Lil Kim, as well as interludes by Christopher Wallace’s mother, Voletta.
“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,” said 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!”
Due May 19, just two days before B.I.G’s birthday, The King & I is also set to feature Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Cease, Sheek Lounch, and Styles P.
