Singer Faith Evans is planning to release a duet album with her late husband The Notorious B.I.G.

The Love Like This hitmaker has wanted to record the album for several years and she is finally ready to head into the studio.

She tells HipHollywood, "I finally got all my ducks in a row to make it happen. It (will be) unheard music... I would say in the next year (fans will start to hear material from the record.) It's going to be so dope (cool)."

Notorious B.I.G., real name Christopher Wallace, was killed in 1997 when he was involved in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.
