Less than a year after dropping the album, the Brooklyn rhymer saw the critically-adored release go from selling 50,000 copies within its first week to raking in a million sold for an RIAA platinum certification. Already riding high off the success of back-to-back singles "Juicy," "Big Poppa" and "Warning," the self-professed rap phenomenon tossed in another milestone to that simmering repertoire in the summer of 1995 that went by the name: "One More Chance/Stay With Me."

A remix to the R-rated original, the glossy update to "One More Chance" turned Biggie from rising rapper to rap star. By the end of July 1995, the record earned him yet another platinum plaque. Produced by Rashad Smith, the single features Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans.

Detailing the making of the hit smash, all three contributors talked to REVOLT about how an idea by Bad Boy maestro Puff Daddy turned into a timeless collaboration.
