According to vibe, Kanye West and Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated album, “Jesus Is King 2,” has reportedly leaked, creating significant buzz among fans and the music community. The leak surfaced when a social media user shared the full album on the “Through The Wire” Reddit page on Monday (September 25).
“Jesus Is King 2” is believed to consist of 15 songs, boasting an impressive lineup of guest artists. The featured collaborators on the album include Pusha T, Marsha Ambrosius, Eminem, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Anderson .Paak, A$AP Ferg, and Snoop Dogg, promising a star-studded musical experience.
A closer examination of the project reveals that it appears to be a reimagined version of Kanye West’s original “Jesus Is King” album, curated and produced by Dr. Dre. Some of the tracks, such as “Water” and “God Is,” have been given Dr. Dre’s signature touch, enhancing Ye’s original production.
However, “Jesus Is King 2” isn’t merely a retouched version of the previous work. The album also features new content, including fresh verses from Kanye West himself. Notable additions include a collaboration with Travis Scott on “Hand On” and another with Anderson .Paak on “Closed On Sunday.” Fans have been eagerly awaiting tracks like “Blood of the Lamb” featuring Pusha T and “L.A. Monster” featuring A$AP Ferg.
The announcement of “Jesus Is King 2” dates back to 2019 when Kanye West initially shared the news on Twitter, stating, “Ye and Dre, Jesus Is King Part II coming.” Subsequently, during a Sunday Service event, he elaborated on the project, describing it as his “first clean album.” He humorously expressed how he used to strive to match the mixing quality of Dr. Dre’s beats but found that by dedicating his efforts to an album centered around God, Dr. Dre himself became involved in mixing his beats, emphasizing the importance of focusing on faith.
Two years after the initial announcement, Kanye West and Dr. Dre treated fans to an unreleased track titled “Glory,” which was featured in a Beats commercial starring Sha’Carri Richardson, adding to the anticipation surrounding “Jesus Is King 2.”
