KANYE WEST: Coming Out with a Christmas Album

Even though Jesus Is King still isn’t here as of nearly noon on Friday, Kanye says there’s a second album on the way later this year.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Yeezy revealed plans for a new Christmas album called Jesus Is Born dropping on Christmas Day.

He also spoke about overcoming his porn addiction by committing himself to God. He says it started when he saw a Playboy his dad left out when he was five years old, and it’s affected almost every choice in his life since.

He also revealed that during the making of Jesus Is King he asked his collaborators to abstain from premarital sex. “There was times where I was asking people to fast during the album… There were times I was asking people to not have premarital sex while they were working on the album. I know that’s one where The Shade Room will be like, ‘What you mean not have premarital sex!?'” He would also ask everyone in studio to get together to pray as a family.

Hot Takes:

  • Kim’s gonna leave his goofy ass any day now. If it weren’t for the kids and her public image, she probably already would have.
  • Kanye’s being extra right now because he knows it will get him press.
  • I don’t doubt his newfound commitment to religion. But I also know he has a tendency to say whatever he’s thinking and feeling at the moment, even if that switches completely the next moment. Let’s check back with Kanye in a year or two.
  • If the album flops, will he stay committed to making gospel music?
