R&B veteran Faith Evans have announced plans to put out a new joint album with music from her late ex-husband and rap great Notorious B.I.G.
According to Faith, the project will feature unheard music from the late Bad Boy Records icon.
“I’m about to start working on a very, very special musical project with me and Big,” Faith revealed in an interview. “I’ve just had time and have been thinking about it for a minute. I finally got all my ducks in a row to make it happen. It is definitely unheard music. Unheard music in the presentation of it. That’s what I will say. Think Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole.” (Hip Hollywood)

Earlier this year, Faith and Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy paid homage to B.I.G. during a Los Angeles performance.
Faith Evans brought along some old friends during her show at the House of Blues in L.A. on Wednesday. Following an opening set from Kelly Price, the R&B diva was joined onstage by Diddy, who helped her pay tribute to her late husband, the Notorious B.I.G., with their classic “I’ll Be Missing You.” “Thanks to my bro @iamdiddy for coming out to rock the stage w/me & @1500orNOTHIN 2nite!” tweeted Faith. During her appearance on “Bethenny,” Faith spoke about her relationship with her former Bad Boy boss. “We keep in touch. He sends my kids Christmas gifts every year,” she said. (Rap-Up)
Faith appeared on television personality Arsenio Hall‘s talk show last year and spoke on B.I.G.’s murder case.
“We just basically stopped spending our money on trying to hope that the LAPD was gonna do, you know, their part. You know what I’m saying? It’s not closed. It’s just a matter of when they really feel like they wanna do the right thing ’cause we in our hearts kinda feel like we know what happened and we believe that they know what happened. You know, we’ll probably be the biggest case in the city’s history.” (“Arsenio”)
Evans also suggested the financial repercussion may likely have contributed to the LAPD’s lack of progress.
“So I’m sure – they don’t feel good about having to write a check that big. But for us, it’s not about that. We spend millions of dollars on lawyers fees, we’ve never gotten anything from it. It’s more about trying to do what’s right – for his family and his loved ones and his kids, you know. We definitely had gotten to a point where we realized that they may not ever happen and that’s really sad.” (“Arsenio”)
