If Thou withdraw Thyself from me, where shall I go? Such was the power of the gospel. It is ostensibly a favorite of Kanye West , who sampled Pastor T. As West sells it, figuratively and literally , Jesus Is King is a repudiation of his past sin, an absolution, a blank slate from which to spread the word of a very specific God, one whose blessings rain down on a cul-de-sac in Calabasas and a ranch in Jackson Hole. By most accounts, fewer and fewer Americans identify as Christian, and a steadily growing number describe themselves as atheist or agnostic.
“Is Christ really at the center?”
West has certainly received a fair amount of backlash for his hard turn toward spiritual music. But West has also received a groundswell of support— particularly from gospel artists themselves.

The album missed two initial release dates in September and November under the original title, before being delayed indefinitely. West had formed his gospel group the Sunday Service Choir in January , performing gospel songs and covers of songs from West's discography. The song " Water " was performed live prior to release by the group. In August , Yandhi was reannounced as Jesus Is King , but it missed two planned release dates for late September under the new title. The final release of Jesus Is King was simultaneous with that of a concert film of the same name , which included a number of the tracks as part of the soundtrack. The album received mixed reviews from music critics, with a number of them drawing comparisons between it and West's previous solo album Ye. Some critics complemented the former's composition, while others expressed negative feelings towards the lyrical content and the inconsistency of ideas.
