AceShowbiz - The wait is finally over! Following a series of delay for the release of his new album, Kanye West has finally confirmed that his much-anticipated effort, which is now titled "Jesus Is King", will be released before the end of the month. Not only that, but he has also shared on his website the tracklist for the upcoming album.
It's confirmed that "Jesus Is King" will include 12 tracks such as "Clade", "Through the Valley", "Sierra Canyon" and "Wake the Dead". Judging from the photo that he posted on the site, it seems like his album will not have featured artists at all. As for the release date, "Jesus Is King" is set to hit the stores on Friday, September 27.
Fans might have realized that the photo on his website was the same photo that Kim Kardashian shared on her social media accounts last month. However, at the time, her post made a lot of people speculate whether or not it was about Kanye's album because she didn't offer any details in the caption of the post.
"Jesus Is King" was previously titled "Yandhi" and was supposed to be released on Black Friday last year. However, Kanye decided to push back its release date because he wasn't convinced that the record would be as perfect as he wanted it to be, even after he went all the way to Uganda to work on his album.
In a Twitter post announcing the delay of its release date, Kanye hinted that he came to realization that the album wasn't ready to hit the stores after taking performing at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw with Kid Cudi. He said at the time, "It felt so good being on the stage last night with my brother Cudi. After performing again, I realize the new album I've been working on isn't ready yet. I'll announce the release date once it's done. Thank you for understanding."
"Jesus Is King" will follow Kanye's 2018 album "Ye", which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200.
