In preperation Evans has released another single on the 25-track project, titled “Wife Commandments,” and it’s a banger.
Throughout the song, which clocks in at just under four minutes, the singer and rapper run through the makings of a happy life at the hands of a dutiful wife.
“Got to be a lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets but don’t do too much,” Evans sings. “I know you’ve heard this before, tell him you love him before he walks out the door.”

With a list of ten commandments, both Evans and the late B.I.G. dish out advice to being and staying happy in a marriage and we’re so here for it.
The King & I is slated for release on May 19th, just two days before what would have been B.I.G.’s 45th birthday. It will include rare and unreleased rhymes from the rapper along with guest appearances from Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Kim, Jadakiss, Lil’ Cease, Snoop Dogg and more.
In a statement, the 2016 ESSENCE Festival perfomer said that this album is a passion project she has spent years developing and plans to continue to share and celebrate the bond and legacy of Biggie with his loyal listeners.
“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,” the statement read. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [his daughter] Tyanna & [their son] 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!”
“Wife Commandments” is a play on Biggie’s hit song “Ten Crack Commandments” from his 1997 album Life After Death.
