Kanye West Releases New Album ‘Jesus Is King'

Kanye West's recent attraction towards gospel music inspired “Sunday Services” has some wondering if he has really lost his mind, or has found peace and salvation through these spiritual based gatherings. West’s wife and reality television star Kim Kardashian recently told an audience on the daytime talk show The View that her husband has “dedicated his life to Christ.” Kanye has declared as much on his official website as well. The rapper and father of four continues to lead these praise and worship services, whose location changes from week to week, and often feature other famous musicians such as: ASAP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, 070 Shakes, and Charlie Wilson among others. Other attendees have included celebrities: Babyface, Busy Phillips, Courtney Love, David Letterman, Diplo, DMX, , Fonzworth Bentley, Idris Alba, Orlando Bloom, Rick Rubin, Tyler, the Creator, and Verdin White from Earth Wind and Fire. These Sunday Services are also featured on Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian's reality show "keeping up with the Kardashians."

West’s last album ye arrived in 2018 during a summer when he also produced albums for PUSHA-T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor. He also released Kids See Ghosts, his joint LP with Kid Cudi. Prior to the extensive teasing of Jesus Is King, Kanye West announced last year that his next album would titled Yandhi. The project was originally slated for a release date of September 29, 2018—the same night as his infamous Saturday Night Live appearance. The album did not arrive on that date, and was subsequently delayed, and then postponed indefinitely. It’s unclear if or when that album will arrive.
