Faith Evans has been working on her Notorious B.I.G. duets album, The King & I, over the last few years. However, after sharing two new songs — “When We Party” and “NYC” — Evans is finally revealing more details on the new project.

The 25-track album will arrive on May 19, which is two days before B.I.G.’s birthday. It is packed with guest features including Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, 112, Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P, to name a few. It will also feature narration from B.I.G.’s mother Voletta Wallace.

“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,” Evans said. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [his kids] 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!”

Mary J. Blige Talks Golden Globe Nominations: ‘I’m Just So Grateful’

Mary J. Blige has a lot to be proud of. Blige has been nominated for two Golden Globes, including best supporting actress and best original song in the Netflix film Mudbound. 

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul spoke with The Los Angeles Times about how she felt about her nomination, which she found out about while still in bed. “This is different because [acting] is something I’ve always set out to do and I wanted to get it right and do it right,” she said. “The reward that comes with this is this nomination so I’m grateful. It feels good because I’m being nominated for something other than singing. [laughs] I don’t even know what else to say. I’m just so grateful.”

Blige also dished on what she hopes people take away from her character Florence Jackson in the film.”To be humble. To be powerful. To know who we are. Florence is like every woman. She’s the center and holds things together without getting too emotional about it,” Blige said. “She loves her family. So, I hope people know that … you can figure a way out of things. Florence was a quiet, silent power.”

Mudbound follows the story of two men – one white, one black – returning home from WWII to life on the Mississippi Delta. As their families struggle to share the land, they discover what they hold in common is more true than what tears them apart.
