After months of promotion, the new Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G. collaboration album, The King & I has arrived.

The duets album features vocals from Faith and previously recorded verses from Biggie, including the lead singles, "When We Party," "Take Me There" and "Legacy."

“If there were a title track for The King & I, it would be ‘Legacy.’ This song absolutely sums up the theme of the album,” Evans told Billboard.

The 25-song collection features appearances from Lil’ Cease, 112, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Kim, The LOX and more. In addition, Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, narrates the project.

“I remember telling Ms. Wallace [Biggie’s mother] that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie and Nat King Cole’s ‘Unforgettable,’” Evans said in her latest bio, according to Billboard. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [daughter Tyanna] and Ceejay [his son with Evans, Christopher Wallace Jr.], I feel it’s my duty to uphold and extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions. This project is my creative reflection of the love we had and the bond we will always have.”
