A new release date for Kanye West’s forthcoming album Jesus Is King has reportedly been announced. Various attendees of the Kanye West Experience at the George Washington University Lisner Auditorium claim that ‘Ye himself confirmed the album’s tentative release date of October 25, set to coincide with the premiere of the IMAX movie.
Prior to the listening party, West held his weekly Sunday Service at Howard University and performed alongside cousin and singer Tony Williams. On top of appearances by wife Kim Kardashian and their children, Halim Flowers and Momolu Stewart — two D.C. men recently released under the state’s Incarceration Reduction Act of 2017 — also took the stage to talk a little about their stories. As part of her mission for criminal justice reform, Kardashian, who is currently working to be a lawyer, aided in Stewart’s release by writing a two-page petition letter on his behalf.
Jesus Is King was originally scheduled for a September 27 release date but has since been delayed indefinitely due to his constant “tweaking.” Stay tuned to see if West really does release the album this time around.
