AceShowbiz - Don't worry, Kanye West fans! The hip-hop mogul is not going to let you wait too long to listen to his much-anticipated album "Jesus Is King". Kim Kardashian has confirmed on Instagram Stories that the upcoming album is still being released this week, though he had to scrap plans of unleashing the album on Friday, September 27.
In the post, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star revealed that "Jesus Is King" would hit the stores on Sunday, September 29. In addition to that, Kanye will hold a listening session in his hometown Chicago and in New York City. "Kanye's doing a listening session in Chicago tomorrow, then NYC Sunday," Kim wrote on the site. "He's dropping the album Sunday. Just a few final tweaks to the mixes."
"Jesus Is King" was supposed to be released on Friday. However, earlier this week, there were reports going around saying that the effort would not be unveiled on its supposed date "despite people on the ground in Wyoming trying to make it happen."
While it's true that the new album didn't hit the stores on Friday, those who attended a pop-up listening party at the Fox Theater in Detroit were treated to songs off "Jesus Is King". Despite the gospel-themed title, it's reported that the album isn't a gospel record. Rather, it's described as a "typically unconventional Kanye West album that functions as a message of faith and praise, like the hip-hop prayer."
During the event, Kanye also introduced an IMAX film that featured gospel performances by his Sunday Service choir. He also showed short clips from a documentary about his forays into architecture and affordable-housing projects as he seeks designs "that maximize human experience." According to Kim, the film will hit theaters across the nation in October.
