Kanye West has transformed his Yandhi project into a gospel album called Jesus Is King. Now that Kanye has set a release date for Oct. 25, fans are wondering about the former collaborations that were supposed to appear on Yandhi.

During a conversation with The Shade Room, Nicki Minaj revealed that her feature with 'Ye is trying to work into the new concept of Jesus Is King.


🔊 Sound on! _____________________________________ Earlier this week, #NickiMinaj dropped her highly anticipated #Fendi collection, and we were right there celebrating with her as she commemorated this new milestone that has all of the fashion industry talking. Aside from that, we sat down with Nicki and had an exclusive interview where we talked about what inspired the collection. As well as her upcoming nuptials to her man #KennethPetty, whether or not she’s really retiring, other artists she would love to collaborate with and much more. _____________________________________ If you’re like us, then you’ve been counting down the days since Nicki and Kenneth obtained their marriage license, as we wait for them to officially say their “I Do’s.” Nicki talked to us about their upcoming nuptials and whether or not they’re going to have a big wedding. _____________________________________ She said, “We’ll definitely do the paperwork portion of the marriage, but the actual wedding, I don’t know. You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much because I remember wanting those things with people, where real love wasn’t there. So now I feel like now that everything has finally lined up and matched up being that I’m madly in love with this man, he’s also my best friend, the things that used to matter to me before, don’t matter as much now. So yes, we’re going to have a big wedding eventually.” She also expressed how deeply in love she is right now, and the importance of——click the link in the bio to read more at TheShadeRoom.com

"What’s funny is that I did a song with Kanye, that he now wants to transform into a gospel song," Minaj said in regards to their highly anticipated track "New Body." She went on to explain that Kanye's new direction has caused a creative tug-of-war. "I done wrote three different verses chile, and I don’t know. We ain’t seeing eye to eye on it. I don’t know, but of course, I love and respect Kanye, and Kim, we’ll see what happens with that."

Kanye has been teasing "New Body" for awhile now. In addition to Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign was tapped to provide the song's chorus. Initially, the song was supposed to address the issues of slut-shaming and body shaming. Although the song has a positive message, it doesn't fit into Kanye's new path in life.

During an interview with West's pastor Adam Tyson, he explained Yezzy almost quit rapping because it's "the devil's music." Tyson claims that he convinced 'Ye to rap for God, and it appears he took Tyson's advice to heart. A verison of "New Body" was played during his exclusive listening sessions in September that was reworked entirely, but knowing Kanye, fans could hear an entirely different version later this week.
