Kanye West released a gospel album recently, and boy do people have opinions about it. What can’t be denied is that Jesus is King has been listened to a lot, as the album hit #1 on the Billboard charts, was nearly crossed the 200 million stream mark in a single week, and sold more albums in one week than any other rap or R&B album in 2019 aside from Post Malone’s Hollywood Bleeding.
