Fans weren’t surprised when Kanye West’s ninth studio album, Jesus Is King, failed to arrive on Friday (September 27). But according to reality television queen and ‘Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian, they won’t have to wait too much longer.
As part of her recent Instagram Stories, Kardashian said the project will drop on Sunday (September 29).
This is truly par for the course at this point. Kanye consistently misses release dates or seemingly abandons projects altogether.
As in the case of Yandhi, the G.O.O.D. Music boss promised it would arrive last September but after multiple delays, it appeared to be scrapped. Then, Jesus Is King looked to be resurrected in its place, although ‘Ye’s legal team reportedly filed reconsideration paperwork to trademark the word earlier this month.
During a recent interview with ‘Ye’s longtime collaborator Consequence, he told HipHopDX, “With Kanye, it always runs down to the wire,” which has proven to be true over and over again.
Kanye has been in Detroit this weekend hosting an album listening event called Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience at Motor City’s Fox Theatre.
