Kanye West is Done With Making Secular Music, Will Only Make Gospel Music From Now On

There were reports that Kanye West‘s new album “Jesus is King” was going to be released on Sunday, Sept. 27th, then Sept. 29th. Yet both of those dates passed and it didn’t arrive.

But West did play the LP to live audiences in Detroit, Chicago and New York City over the past few days. And according to those who’ve heard it, the album is curse free and songs have spiritual themes, as the title may suggest.

And now more information has leaked. Not so much about the album but of West. Because according to Andrew Barber, who owns the Chicago music site Fake Shore Drive, West will only make gospel music from here on out and leave secular tunes behind.

It was something he apparently said while at Chance the Rapper‘s concert in Chicago’s United Center over the weekend.

“West also announced that he is no longer making secular music,” tweeted Barber on Saturday. “Only Gospel from here on out.”

A tracklist of the album tweeted by West’s wife Kim Kardashian on Friday gives a hint of the topics that will be on “Jesus is King.”

“Follow God,” “On God,” “Use this Gospel,” “Selah” and “Up from the Ashes” are just some of the titles.

West is also releasing a documentary titled “Jesus is King” that’s scheduled for an Oct. 25th release. And it will reportedly show some of the rapper’s Sunday Service events that he’s been playing in California and around the United States with a gospel choir in tow.

West’s last album was 2018’s “Ye,” and since then he’s fallen out of good graces with many, due to his support of Donald Trump and saying things like “Slavery was a choice.”
