The Tragic Love Of Faith Evans And Biggie

One thing about Faith Evans' past that you can't forget is the fact that she was married to the famous and sadly deceased Notorious B.I.G. Notorious B.I.G. is known for a lot of things, such as his famous rap songs and his tragic death, but a lot of people don't talk about his marriage to Faith Evans. However, the two were married in 1994 and have a son together whose name is Christopher.

Although their marriage tragically ended due to Notorious B.I.G.'s death, when he was murdered in Los Angeles in 1997 when he was only 24 years old, there were things that were wrong with the marriage beforehand. For one thing, Notorious B.I.G. had a hard time remaining faithful to his wife and cheated on her multiple times, both with groupies and celebrities. Faith Evan admits to having gotten into physical fights with the women who were messing around with her husband, and she even wrote about them in her autobiography. Although there have been rumors that Faith Evans was unfaithful to Notorious B.I.G. as well, Faith admits that Tupac Shakur tried to get close to her while she was married but that she never cheated on her husband.

Popular Faith Evans songs.

When she came onto the music scene in the mid-90s, Faith Evans brought a mix of sultry R&B and urban hip hop sounds which pleased many listeners because her songs fit well into the changing landscape of urban radio at that time. Satellite tv music channels often play some of her music, as well as similar songs. Evans found success with her very first album, which was released in the summer of 1995, and spawned a few big hits on the R&B charts. The first two single releases, titled "You Used to Love Me" and "Soon As I Get Home," peaked higher on the charts than expected and were her biggest smash successes from that album. Following the release of those quiet storm hits, Evans put forth a bouncy, mid-tempo track titled "Ain't Nobody." Subsequently, a slow jam titled "Come Over" performed well on the charts.

Upon the release of her second studio album in 1998, the record label pushed more up-tempo songs recorded by Evans as her single releases. A funky bassline and dance-oriented melody helped "All Night Long" become one of her most well-known songs. Another up-tempo tune, titled "Love Like This" was received well by R&B fans. Also, Evans found moderate success with a ballad titled "Never Gonna Let You Go." In addition, in the late 1990's, legendary pop music artist Whitney Houston agreed to a collaboration with Evans and R&B singer Kelly Price; the three ladies crafted a huge international hit titled "Heartbreak Hotel."

When her third studio album dropped in the fall of 2001, Evans led her single releases with a heavily hip hop-influenced track titled "You Gets No Love," which became the most solid success from that album. She also grabbed the public's positive attention with a snappy, mid-tempo track titled "Burnin' Up," which featured a rap by Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott. An understated ballad simply titled "I Love You" rounded out her single releases quite well, and it was a success on R&B as well as urban adult contemporary stations.

Faith Evan Snags Lead In TV Show

Faith Evans has been around for a long time. Most people know her as the widow of Notorious B.I.G., but she has came out of those shadows. Her most recent spotlight is that of an R&B diva on the show of the same name.

People want reality television. They cannot seem to get enough of it. TV One is a black network that was mostly known for bringing all those old school sitcoms back into the spotlight. Today this network is popular because they have enough money to create some of their own shows.

Faith Evans counts herself fortunate to land on this show because there are so many other things that happen to recording artists. Many people that have had a hard time with the law will find themselves out of work. Faith, who has had several drug and alcohol related incidents, has never really saw herself as a diva. This is what makes so many people tune in. They want to see what is going on in the Faith Evans camp.

There hasn't been an album from Faith in a while. She has been out of the spotlight for a minute. Now she wants to return to stardom.

What Is It About Faith Evans?

Faith Evan is a singer who was born in Florida, but raised as a Jersey girl. Most people know Faith for her marriage to the famous New York rapper, the Notorious B.I.G. Though their marriage was turbulent to say the least, upon his death she wrote a song to tribute his memory. His death on March 9, 1997 gave her the inspiration for her mega hit "I'll Be Missing You". The song became a super mega hit and was popular enough to allow her to bring home a Grammy in 1998.

Her last album was in 2010 called Something About Faith. Since then Faith found love with Russaw. While she has always been attracted to the bad boys, this was no exception. She had two sons with Russaw, but filed or divorce in 2007.

Today, Faith is excited to do her new show "R&B Divas,which airs on the TV One network. While this platinum-selling songstress has taken a break from music to raise her children, she is ready to hit the small screen and show the world how life is everyday.

Though Faith has had her share of troubles and trials regarding marriage and children, she is someone who always rises from the ashes. Her new shoe promises to be full of excitement and an inside look at the real Faith.

R&B Fans Forgive Faith’s Multi-Year Hiatus

R&B fans are all geared up and ready to hear some new music from Faith. Her fans will also get a chance to see more of Faith as well. She will be presenting her audience with an audio and visual scoop of what has been going on.

For so long people knew her as the wife of Biggie Smalls. This became her springboard or launchpad for her career on the Bad Boy label. She spent several years hanging out with Puff Daddy (now known as P. Diddy) in order to establish herself. The Bad Boy franchise eventually broke down after the death of her husband, but Faith has continued to deliver good music.

The irony is that her production and sound is better, but her last two solo efforts did not sell well. Some R&B fans blame it on the increase in Internet piracy. Others blame it on Faith and her inconsistencies as an artist. She makes a lot of music about staying strong and keeping the Faith. The irony is that she constantly seems to be losing her faith which is evident with her drug and alcohol issues. R&B fans hope the new album will be a turning point.
