To follow up his 2004 record "Kiss of Death", Jadakiss is scheduled to drop his third studio album "The Last Kiss" on March 10 across U.S. In the new effort, he taps Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Pharrell Williams, Ne-Yo and many others as his collaborators.

Jadakiss collaborates with Wayne in a song called "Death Wish" and teams up with Jeezy in another single entitled "Something Else". He meanwhile prefers to join forces with Williams in single "Two-Step" and for a duet with Ne-Yo, he chooses to share the mic in a song titled "By My Side".

Jadakiss also makes a collaboration with Faith Evans in a track "Letter to B.I.G." Beside listed in his upcoming album, the single has also been featured as one of the theme songs in "Notorious", the movie about the life of late rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G..

Prior to the confirmation "Letter to B.I.G." will indeed be in his forthcoming album, Jadakiss revealed to MTV that decision to put the song in the effort might be corny. He then thought about doing a remix version and so named D-Block and Junior M.A.F.I.A. as the ones he wants to team up with for the remix.

"The Last Kiss" itself was initially titled "Kiss My Ass" but was then changed due to negative feedback from music retailers. "I had to change the name of my album because 'Kiss My Ass' wasn't testing well at retail; not even with the exclamations or none of that so we had to change it to 'The Last Kiss'," Jadakiss said during an interview.
