With 178,992 views on Friday, 25 October 2019 our article of the day is Jesus Is King.
Jesus Is King (stylized in all caps) is the ninth studio album by American rapper Kanye West. The album follows a religious theme, with West describing it as "an expression of the gospel." West had formed his Sunday Service group in January 2019, performing gospel songs and covers of songs from his discography. Sunday Service performed the song "Water" live prior to release.
The album features an array of guest artists, including Clipse, Ty Dolla Sign, Kenny G, Fred Hammond, Ant Clemons, and Sunday Service. The album features production from West, Benny Blanco, E*vax, Finatik N Zac, Francis Starlite, Labrinth, Pi'erre Bourne, Ronny J, Timbaland, and Warryn Campbell, among others. Mike Dean, a frequent collaborator of West's, served as the album's mastering engineer and as an additional producer.
West quit using medication to treat his bipolar disorder and began recording in August 2018, originally announcing the album as Yandhi. The album missed two initial release dates in September and November 2018 under its original title, before being delayed indefinitely. In August 2019, West's wife Kim Kardashian reannounced the album as Jesus Is King but it missed two planned release dates for late September 2019. The album was released simultaneously with a concert film of the same name on October 25, 2019.
