Kanye West announces ‘Jesus is King’ sequel with Dr Dre

Busy times ahead for Mr West.

Kanye West and Dr Dre are teaming up for Jesus is King Part II, the follow-up to Ye’s ninth album, Jesus is King.

The pair announced their collaborative project yesterday with similar posts on Twitter. “Ye and Dre Jesus is King Part II Coming Soon,” they both tweeted on their respective social media accounts. They also shared the same photo of themselves hanging out in the studio. An official release date for their joint effort has not yet been confirmed.

West dropped Jesus is King in October after facing several production delays. It was initially due for a September release, but was pushed back a month later. The album was then accompanied by the premiere of his new docu-film, also titled Jesus is King. Last month, the rapper revealed that he plans to release another “Sunday Service album,” Jesus is Born, at Christmas.

Ye recently announced that he will stage his first-ever opera at the Hollywood Bowl later this week. Titled Nebuchadnezzar, the performance will feature music by the rapper’s Sunday Service choir, Peter Colins and Infinities Song, and will be directed by Vanessa Beecroft.
