This weekend, Kanye West was scheduled to release his Jesus is King album. While his major label has been quiet on its roll-out in press releases, Kim K announced that the project was set to arrive earlier today.
Well, that doesn’t look to be the case today, as many fans of Yeezy have been pleading for the digital streaming release. During one of his live listening party sessions, someone snuck a phone into the session and recorded the entire project on YouTube.
Take a listen to a preview below and look for the full album soon.
Jesus Is King has been promoted as West’s “gospel album,” a tag he previously applied to his 2016 opus The Life of Pablo. The tag seems especially apt, given the sermon-esque elements heard throughout the leak, as well as the extensive use of choirs and church organs. West can be heard briefly introducing each track, and engaging in small talk with the crowd.
The leak also confirms artists who were previously teased as features, including rap duo Clipse and R&B crooner Ty Dolla $ign. You can also hear final mixes for “Water” and “New Body” which were previously leaked online in an unfinished or live form.
