Published Aug 29, 2019Nearly a full calendar year removed from teasing the effort, Kanye West's Yandhi is nowhere in sight — unless you count the batch of partially completed material that leaked online earlier this month. In a move that should surprise no one, West has now seemingly scrapped that effort in favour of something new.
On Twitter today, Kim Kardashian shared a photo of what appears to be a tracklist for a new album titled Jesus Is King. The tracklist plots out songs titled "God Is," "Water," "Wake the Dead" and "Sweet Jesus," with the date "September 27" scrawled at the bottom of the notebook page.
An album titled Jesus Is King would not come as a shock to devout followers of West's "Sunday Service" gatherings, a series of recent performances that many have speculated to be album promo. In July, it was reported that West had applied to trademark the phrase itself for use in the fashion world.
After West teased Yandhi's arrival in September of last year, Kardashian revealed in October that the album had been delayed until November. West then delayed the effort indefinitely that month.
Last year, West delivered solo album ye and the Kid Cudi-assisted Kids See Ghosts. He also delivered singles "I Love It" and "XTCY," on top of plenty of sad, pro-Trump bluster.
Recently, West produced a pair of singles for Pusha-T that arrived this week, titled "Sociopath" and "Coming Home." Earlier this month, he was spotted hanging out with the crew of Rick and Morty.
