R&B star Faith Evans will release her third solo album, "Faithfully," Nov. 6 via Bad Boy/Arista. Executive produced by Bad Boy founder Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Evans, and Todd Russaw, the album will be led by the M.A. Saulsbury-produced single "You Gets No Love." A supporting video clip directed by Chris Robinson was recently shot in Los Angeles.

The album, described by the label as "old school flavored," features production by Mario Winans, Buckwild, Vada Nobles, the Neptunes, Battlecat, and others. Material ranges from ballads, such as the intimate "Love Can't Hide," to dance tracks, exemplified in the R&B funk of "Back 2 Love." Also featured is the hip-hop cut "Alone in This World," on which Evans pays tribute to her late husband, rapper Biggie Smalls (aka the Notorious B.I.G.), by incorporating one of his songs into the new track.

Evans began her solo career in 1995 with her debut "Faith," which debuted at No. 22 on The Billboard 200, and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. She followed that set in 1998 with "Keep the Faith," which debuted at No. 3 on the R&B/Hip-Hop tally and No. 4 on The Billboard 200. Both albums have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for U.S. shipments of 1 million copies.
