WATCH: American rapper Kanye West dropped yet another Sunday Service album on Christmas Day – Dec 26, 2019

Only two months after the release of Jesus Is King, his ninth studio album, Kanye West has dropped another Sunday Service album.

The new album is called Jesus Is Born and was released on Christmas Day.

Though it’s the second Christian-themed album by the American rapper, it’s the first to be released under the artist name Sunday Service Choir. West, 42, is credited as a collaborator.

Jesus Is Born is a gospel album and features 19 tracks backed by the choir. The project was released under the INC record label and runs nearly 84 minutes in length.

The rapper announced Jesus Is Born on Oct. 24 during an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, only one day before the release of Jesus Is King.

The latter record was delayed a number of times before eventually being released this year.

The repeated delays led many to believe that Jesus Is Born would also be delayed prior to its release.

However, it seems that wasn’t the case for the Sunday Service Choir’s official debut.
