Watch Faith Evans & Notorious B.I.G.’s Reflective ‘Legacy’ Video
Singer drops latest video off her “duet album” ‘The King & I’
Faith Evans has unveiled the video for “Legacy,” the latest cut off her “duet album” The King & I with her late husband The Notorious B.I.G.
The video features archival footage of the legendary rapper alongside Evans singing “Legacy” at some of the Brooklyn landmarks Biggie frequented.
“If there were a title track for The King & I, it would be ‘Legacy,”‘ Evans said in a statement. “This song absolutely sums up the theme of the album.”
Like the other The King & I offerings ”“ “Ten Wife Commandments” and “NYC” ”“ “Legacy” does not yield any new Biggie verses; the rapper’s rhymes on this cut were borrowed from “Would You Die for Me,” his Born Again duet with Lil Kim.
The King & I is due out May 19th. “I didn’t know how it was going to come together in terms of how I was going to approach it when we did get the chance to do it,” Evans told Rolling Stone. “One day towards the end of recording, I was playing the album back for different people and I just felt a tap on my shoulder and I just started bawling like, ‘I think he just told me he’s proud.’ I turned around like, ‘Get it together.'”
