Kanye West is giving his fans a nice Christmas gift this year. He took to Twitter to release the link for his Sunday Service album Jesus Is Born.
Before releasing his ninth studio album Jesus Is King, West announced that a follow up to that album would drop on Christmas Day. “Sunday Service album, Jesus Is Born, on Christmas is coming,” he told Zane Lowe back in October.
According to an official press release, West is the executive producer on the album. “The Service features gospel-inspired remixes of classic songs of different genres, and also straight forward choir-led gospel tunes. The mix of hip hop and spirituality has drawn great crowds and continues to inspire globally,” the press release reads.
Some of the track titles include “Count Your Blessings,” “That’s How the Good Lord Works” and “Satan, We’re Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Jesus Is Born is West’s second gospel effort; his first, Jesus Is King, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart following its release on Oct. 25. With Jesus Is King, his ninth chart-topper, West tied the record previously held by Eminem for most consecutive No. 1 albums. Every single one of Jesus Is King’s hit the Hot 100 in its first tracking period as well, with “Follow God” premiering at the highest point at No. 7 on that chart.
West is preparing to drop the Jesus Is King sequel with Dr. Dre. West spoke about the collaboration during a Sunday Service event in California earlier this month. ”Jesus Is King is my first clean album. I used to spend all my time trying to make my beats be mixed as good as Dr. Dre,” he said. “Who knew all I had to do was do an album for God and then Dr. Dre would start mixing my beats? Spend your time on God, and he’ll handle the rest.”
