Kanye West has confirmed Jesus is King. After Kim Kardashian teased the project with a post on social media, Kanye addressed the upcoming album and confirmed that Jesus is King will drop in less than two weeks on Friday, September 27.
Kanye confirmed the release date during a concert in Batesville, Indiana to help raise money for Victory Boyd and Infinity’s Song which are signed to Roc Nation. Kanye made his appearance after a special Sunday Service in Atlanta earlier in the day.
A fan captured Kanye making the announcement and shared video on social media.
“Jesus Is King is out September 27, so let’s continue this,” Kanye said.

Of course, we have seen Kanye shift release dates for his project whenever he wants in the past, so it will be interesting to see whether September 27 actually brings us new music. Yandhi was originally slated to release on Sept. 29, so it is believed Jesus is King could be Yandhi in its final iteration.

Back in April of this year, Kanye had teased a new song titled “Water” at one of his Sunday Services. Kanye performed the track which starts with Ye going back and forth with Ant Clemons. Interestingly enough, “Water” appeared on the tracklist that was tweeted out by Kim Kardashian. The biblical theme of the album title and tracklist indicates the project was inspired when Kanye was performing his Sunday Services throughout the past few months. At his services, Kanye has been releasing new tracks — as previously stated with “Water” — so the album could give those who have only seen services online the chance to have new Ye in one place.
