Kanye West's new Gospel album 'Jesus Is King' is here
Kanye West's latest album Jesus is King is finally out. The much hyped about new album is West's first full-gospel inspired since he began his special “Sunday Services” performances that has even seen Brad Pitt attend the special performances.
Kim Kardashian told Elle US that West's Sunday Service was "more like a healing experience" for her husband.
"It’s just music; there’s no sermon. It’s definitely something he believes in — Jesus — and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching. It’s just a very spiritual Christian experience."
The 27-minute project is one of his shortest ever and has seen a lot of big celebrity collaborations on different tracks.
Here's everyone who has been credited on Kanye's new album according to Esquire:
'Selah' was co-written by CyHI the Prynce, No Malice, Pusha T, and West. Benny Blanco and E*vax of Ratatat assist West and Francis and the Lights with production on cuts 'Everything We Need' and the Ant Clemons-featuring 'Water'.
Timbaland lends his hands as a producer to five of the LPs' track: 'Closed On Sunday', 'Water', 'Hands On' – which features Grammy-winning Gospel singer Fred Hammond – 'Use This Gospel', and 'Jesus Is Lord'. And both Pusha T and No Malice have writing credits on three songs – on 'Use This Gospel', they reunite as vocalists on a track that features Kenny G.
Ty Dolla $ign collaborates on 'Everything We Need', which features another appearance by Clemons. 6ix9ine and Playboy Carti collaborator Pi’erre Bourne is listed as a composer and writer on 'On God' and 'Use This Gospel' and BoogzaDaBeast, who has worked with West on some of his earlier releases as well G.O.O.D. Music inner circle stars Teyana Taylor and Pusha T, dots the credit sheets for six of the album's cuts, including 'Everything We Need', which also got an assist from Mike Dean.
As part of West's new found spiritualism, he has also foregone swearing and will not be performing his older cuss-filled track in any of his future concert.
