Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Album Finally Arrives
After a total of three different delays, Kanye West’s new album “Jesus Is King” is finally here. The long-awaited ninth studio album finally dropped in the afternoon on October 25th.
The album has faced multiple delays, as it was initially supposed to be released on September 27th. It was then pushed to September 29th, and then finally October 25th at midnight. However, it struck midnight on the 25th and there was still no sign of the album. At 1 a.m. ET, West took to Twitter to reassure fans it was on its way.
“To my fans. Thank you for being loyal & patient. We are specifically fixing mixes on ‘Everything We Need’ ‘Follow God’ & ‘Water.’ We not going to sleep until this album is out,” wrote West.
Finally, 12 hours later, the gospel-centered album was finally available for fans to enjoy. It features collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign and Ant Clemons on the song “Everything We Need,” saxophone legend Kenny G and Clipse on “Use This Gospel,” and Fred Hammon on “Hands On.” Producers on the album include Timbaland, Francis, and the Lights, and Labrinth.
‘Jesus Is King’ runs for a total of 27 minutes, with 11 tracks that address various aspects of West’s religious beliefs and journey. I don’t know about you, but to us, that seems like a lot of hype and delays for only 27 minutes of music. Do you think it’s worth the wait?
