Finally doing things her way now — former R&B Divas TV-Star, Faith Evans is excited about her comeback with Rap ingénue Sharaya J. & Missy Elliott. The Singer / Songwriter is amid a new generation of starlets (e.g. Jhené Aiko, Tinashe etc.) holding it down for all of her #Faithfuls.

Snatching wigs first and asking questions later, Faith & Co. drop their summer-smashI Deserve It today. Hint of the collaboration — during a mini-interview on Yahoo! months back with Michael Yo of The Yo Show, Elliott discusses her hiatus, producing hits on the low and rapping on 'Deserve' despite talks of writer’s block.

Heartbroken a time or two, The First Lady professes to her dude she's not settling for anything. Widow of slain Rapper, The Notorious B.I.G., Evans an expert on love sings...

...A girl like me is worth it, only want the best cuz I deserve it... Just hold me down you ain't gotta be perfect"

Fresh on the scene, Sharaya J. tags along for the ride with her fiery rap bars for 'Deserve' joining the Grammy-alums that initially shot straight to the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop Billboard charts circa 90s.

Fortunately, history has a way of repeating itself á la “Burnin’ Up” (Watch Video) produced by The Neptunes from Evan's third album Faithfully (2001) during the latter of Bad Boy Records phenomenal era. Now in 2014, enlisting Elliott yet again and polishing up her 8th studio album, Incomparable Faith Renée Evans is indeed just that, legendary too.
