Being acknowledged for his overwhelming talent in producing music, Kanye West has naturally been dubbed one of the greatest rappers of all time with his music being anticipated by people all around the world. And just because he has recently embarked on a spiritual journey, it doesn’t mean it will affect his skill in making music. In fact, he fully uses his talent to spread his believe and the results are greater than expected.

“Jesus Is King”, the first album that Kanye released after he started his journey, was well received by the public, proving that it was certainly worth the wait. The album ruled more than twenty Billboard charts in its first week, including Billboard 200, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Rap Album Sales, Top Gospel Albums as well as Christian Album Sales charts.

In doing so, the rapper made history on Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs charts as he became the first artist to monopolize the entire top ten on both charts. “Follow God” came out at the top spot of the chart while his song “Hands On” closed out the top ten. Kanye has also released a music video for the chart-topping song, tapping his father to make an appearance in the visuals as they both were seen riding an ATV in Wyoming.

In addition to unveiling the visuals for “Follow God”, Kanye has apparently planned to bring the entire album on the road. He previously said that he’s ready to kick things off “right away” when asked by reporters in late last month, though he has yet to announce the official dates for the tour. Besides his upcoming tour, Kanye has also been working hard for his upcoming album “Jesus Is Born” that is expected to be released this year.

In an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1, Kanye said, “Sunday Service album, ‘Jesus Is Born’, on Christmas is coming.” He did not elaborate further on the contents of the album, but it’s possible that it will be a live album that is culled from his Sunday Service performances.
