Superstar rapper Kanye West is one of the most prolific musicians of his generation. In a vacuum, to give you an idea of his greatness, Kanye West is an unapologetic supporter of President Trump and it hasn’t hurt his career one iota.
Many careers have been hurt because they’re Trump supporters like comedian/actress/writer Roseanne Barr and actor James Woods who was fired by his agent on July 4th two years ago because he was “feeling patriotic.”
But it doesn’t affect Kanye West and to prove it even further, the prolific rapper just got a huge unprecedented surprise about his new album “Jesus is King.”
Kanye West has somehow, amongst every other prolific artist working today, transcended the political spectrum like no other. Kanye West is a President Trump supporter and those that love him have given him a pass.
You would think like every other Trump supporter there would be consequences to pay but that logic doesn’t apply to Kanye West.
West released his newest album in the most mysteriously awesome way possible because he’s a marketing genius in that respect.
His “Jesus Is King” album was not only crowned No. 1 on the charts but also managed to land every song on Billboard’s Hot 100 this week.
“Follow God” debuted the highest on the chart in the Top 10 at No. 7, followed by “Closed On Sunday,” the 42-year-old born-again believer’s anthem about Chick-fil-A and family values, at No. 17.
The rapper widely known for “Jesus Walks” released his ninth album to debut at No. 1 on Oct. 25th, breaking a personal record with his biggest streaming week and topping the Christian and Gospel Album charts in his faith-based debut.
In the top 25, “Selah” and “On God” came in at 19 and 23, respectively, with “God Is” and “Use This Gospel,” featuring Clipse and Kenny G, Nos. 36 and 37.
Making their first appearance on the Hot 100 are Ant Clemons, who is featured on “Everything We Need” with Ty Dolla $ign at No. 33, and “Water” at No. 50, Fred Hammond, who is featured in “Hands On” at No. 59, and the Sunday Service Choir, who is featured on the first track of the album, “Every Hour” at No. 44.
The final track on the album, “Jesus Is Lord,” comes in at No. 62, giving him a solid lineup.
One Twitter user wrote, “I used to strip dance to the song ‘Gold Digger’ by Kanye West. Now, years later, I am praising and worshiping the Lord while listening to his album ‘Jesus Is King,'” she wrote. “You are never too far gone. God will call you, appoint you and work through you to bring him glory.”
And West, who says he is no longer an entertainer and he plans to stop using vulgar words in his music, shows no signs of slowing down with his current catalogue.
He told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 that he plans to release a “Sunday Service album” called “Jesus Is Born” on Christmas Day alongside of this revelation.
West recently said, “Music is my job. That’s why I’m putting out the album. Serving God in everything that I can do is my job. That’s why I’m here. That’s why I’m on the planet is to be in service and in fear, love, and service to God.”
