Among the holdovers from "Sweat" and "Suit" are such hits as "Over and Over" featuring Tim McGraw and "My Place," which peaked at No. 3 and No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.
The new collection is also tipped to feature such collaborations as "She Don't Know My Name" with Snoop Dogg and Ronald Isley, "River Don't Runnn" with Murphy Lee and Stephen Marley and "Playa" with Mobb Deep and Missy Elliott.
"Suit" and "Sweat" debuted in the top two slots of The Billboard 200 last October. They have sold 4.3 million copies combined in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
