Kanye West has once again disappointed his fans by postponing the release of “Jesus Is King” for the nth time. The album was supposed to make its way out on Friday, October 25 at midnight, but the rapper took to Twitter to announce that he had to delay its release because he had to fix a few things on the effort.
In the post, he said, “To my fans. Thank you for being loyal & patient. We are specifically fixing mixes on ‘Everything We Need’ ‘Follow God’ & ‘Water’.” However, he later promised fans that the finishing touches would be done before the day changes as saying, “We not going to sleep until this album is out!”
Fans, unfortunately, almost lost their patience and began trolling the hip-hop mogul, jokingly saying that he would fall asleep in the next twenty minutes. There was also a fan who reacted to his tweet with a video of Karlie Redd holding up a lie detector test and saying, “This is a lie,” on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Another said, “Kanye after he tweeted this,” along with a photo of 50 Cent sleeping.
“Jesus Is King” will be having 11 tracks in total, including “Every Hour”, “Closed on Sunday”, “Hands On”, “Use the Gospel” and “Jesus Is Lord”. His collaboration with Nicki Minaj, “New Body”, as well as “Jesus Walks” are not included in the tracklist.
Following the release of the new album, Kanye has already planned to work on a new album called “Jesus Is Born” that he will unleash on Christmas. “Sunday Service album, ‘Jesus Is Born’, on Christmas is coming,” he said during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, though he did not elaborated further whether the album would be a studio album of new material or a live album culled from his cross-country Sunday Service performances.
