Friday came and went without Kanye West's ninth album hitting streaming services. But fans won't have to wait much longer, according to Kim Kardashian. She said on her Instagram Stories that the project will now drop on Sunday, Sept. 29. Kim claimed Kanye is now adding "final tweaks" to the mixes.
Kim had been teasing that Kanye's new album, most-recently titled Jesus Is King, was coming on Friday days before the promised date. Many doubted that was going to happen because of Kanye's history with delays and his uncharacteristic silence. Reports came on Wednesday confirming that Kanye was once again going to be late.
Kanye instead hosted a special Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience—an album listening event with a visual component—at Detroit's Fox Theatre. The Motor City apparently won't be the only metropolis to hear Kanye's new project before Sunday: Kardashian also said Kanye is holding listening sessions in his hometown of Chicago Saturday and New York City on Sunday. Another one of her Stories said that an IMAX film accompanying Jesus Is King will hit theaters in October.
Kanye initially christened his ninth project Yandhi last year before the release dates the Wests announced came and went. Kardashian revealed the ninth album's new title, a tracklist, and since-blown release date late August.
