Kanye West has completed his latest album entitled “Jesus is King,” and says he will only be making “gospel from here on out” and will no longer create secular music.
While West’s album “Jesus is King,” had a release date of September 27, he has yet to make it available to all of his fans.
So far, he is only played the music for fans in two venues: The Fox Theater in Detroit, and the United Palace in Harlem.
West used a similar strategy for the delayed release of his last two albums, so this is nothing new.
In a big change for the hip-hop star, the listening parties for Kanye West’s “Jesus is King” album revealed the absence of any curse words. The topics delve into religious salvation instead.
As Kanye has now moved away from secular music and into gospel only, fans are likely to soon be finding YouTube gospel music videos featuring Kanye West.
West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, tweeted a photo that contained a handwritten list of the albums ten song titles: Up from the Ashes, Follow God, On God, Water, Sunday, LA Monster, New Body, Use This Gospel, Hands On, and Selah.
Kardashian appeared on The View earlier this month and spoke about Kanye’s transition to gospel music in light of his conversion to Christianity.
“Kanye started this to really heal himself and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family,” Kardashian said. “He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”
In addition to his new album, Jesus is King, Kanye is releasing a documentary film of the same name on October 25.
The film reportedly is connected to the album, as well as his “Sunday Service” gospel-theme events that feature his music, celebrity guests, and a choir.
The film will be shown exclusively by IMAX, according to Variety.
