Not so long ago, Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian, tweeted a picture of Kanye West’s meet-up and hangout session with singers 112 saying ‘so this happened’. In regards to the meeting, 112’s Slim said that Kanye’s “in a real good place,” and they talked about spirituality during their session. Whilst he didn’t confirm that Kanye’s Christian music is definitely in the pipelines, he heavily implied as much, saying “You can take music that’s going on right now and you change it, and you put the lord, Jesus, make it Christian. And it kinda draws the youth to church. You know what I mean? It makes church cool.” It appears they may fuse current sounds and musical trends with the gospel.
It looks like Kim Kardashian West has once again revealed that her husband Kanye West is definitely releasing that long awaited new album, next month. The record appears to be called Jesus Is King and it looks set to arrive on September 27. The tracklist notably features “Water,” a song that Kanye performed during his Coachella Sunday Service earlier this year.
In September 2018, West announced that he’d release an album called Yandhi that same month. The release date was subsequently delayed and then postponed indefinitely.
At the top of 2019, West began conducting choirs in “Sunday Service” gospel performances. The events featured gospel renditions of West classics, as well as covers and church staples. West brought “Sunday Service” to Coachella in April and has since held “Sunday Services” for Mother’s Day and to memorialize the victims of the Dayton mass shooting.
Kanye West, has battled some demons recently and news that he had turned to God and his Christian faith had been circling around. However, confirmation of his now found faith came from fellow rapper Nicki Minaj, who, while hosting “Queen Radio” on Apple Music, revealed West told her that he turned to God in 2016, when he was hospitalized and ultimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
“Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are,” Minaj explained. “Then when you find people, because I was just with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now.”
Minaj went on to say she noticed a change in West’s demeanor the last time she saw the fashion designer.
“Like, my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything,” she said. “And that’s what I find God gives you. And I love when I see men that are man enough to embrace God.”
