Kanye West Previews ‘Jesus is King’ Album with Free IMAX Concert, Gives Shout Out to Chick-fil-A


Kanye West Wednesday night previewed his upcoming gospel album “Jesus is King” with a free concert in Los Angeles. 

The rapper, producer and outspoken President Trump supporter previewed his ninth solo album at The Forum. The event, featuring a large IMAX screen as the background, was free of charge.

According to ET, Ye's album includes a shout out to Christian fast-food chain, Chick-fil-A.

The lyrics to one song go, "Closed on Sunday, you my Chick-fil-A,” referencing how the chain closes shop on Sunday’s for church.

On the album and during recent performances, West responds to critics of his faith, saying, “Don’t tell me how to really be saved. Don’t tell me how to really follow Christ.”

“The truth is inside the word,” he said, during one of his Sunday Service events in Kingston, Jamaica last week. “It is your personal relationship with God.”
