Kanye West recovers from delayed release of ‘Jesus Is King’ with Detroit Listening party

Kanye West is known for his music, but many times his music stirs up controversy even he cannot handle.

The master of lyricism, some have hailed him a legend. Now on a more righteous path, the Chicago native has made strides popularising Gospel music. With his weekly Sunday Service, he was set to bridge the divide between hip-hop and gospel music with the new album ‘Jesus Is King’, in one swoop.

That is the power of Kanye West.

However, when he disappointed fans with a delay in the release of the highly anticipated ‘Jesus Is King’ record, he was scrambling to make things right; leading him to host a quint listening party in Detroit before 1,000 fans.

According to a post on Billboard, “West himself was on hand for the event, introducing the proceedings from a VIP box in the theater’s mezzanine and then coming to the main floor mixing board to play the 10-track, 35-minute album himself, blasting it in quadraphonic sound. West introduced each song without commentary and identified some of the featured guests — notably hip-hop duo Clipse and easy-listening saxophonist Kenny G on the album-closing “Use This Gospel.”

It was earlier reported on Bang Showbiz that Kanye West would release his new album on Sunday (29.09.19) after a 2-day delay, however the album is still not yet available to the public.

The 42-year-old rapper was due to release his latest record ‘Jesus Is King’ on Friday (27.09.19) but his wife Kim Kardashian West revealed that Kanye is working on the final mixes for the project and will release it after listening sessions in Chicago and New York.

She wrote in an Instagram story: “Kanye is doing a listening session in Chicago tomorrow, then NYC Sunday. He’s dropping the album Sunday. Just a few final tweaks to the mixes.”

And Kanye is also planning to release an IMAX film in October called ‘Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience’, which he recently previewed a “small clip of”. Kim added: “I can’t wait for you guys to see this @imax film in October.”

Kanye last dropped an album in June 2018 when he released eighth record ‘Ye’. Just three months later, he revealed his next album would be called ‘Yandhi’ but the release was then postponed indefinitely.

In March this year, Kanye was said to have been eyeing up a collaboration with Dua Lipa for his new record.

An insider said at the time: “Kanye is super impressed with Dua’s voice and he knows she’s really hot property in the industry right now. He met her at the church service he holds in LA every Sunday and is now keen to get her on board. She’s already teamed up with Calvin Harris and he saw how well that song did commercially.

“He’s got a few songs he thinks Dua would be perfect for and is really eager to get her on his next album ‘Yandhi’.”
