Kanye West’s Record Label & Management on ‘Jesus Is King’ Release: Not Tonight

Oh, well.

It is, admittedly, not Kanye West season—yet.

Despite reports that Kanye West’s ninth studio album Jesus Is King will be dropping at 8 PM (no specified timezone), a source at Universal Music Group tells DJBooth there is no album coming this evening. A member of Kanye’s management team, through the UMG source, has also confirmed the album isn’t releasing this evening. All timezones specified.

Of course, it’s entirely possible Kanye does Kanye and releases the album independent of his record label (Def Jam).
