Jesus Is King was first scheduled for release on September 27. That date was pushed back by two days but the album remained unreleased. West held listening sessions for the album and has continued to host his Sunday Services in the interim period. The most recent Sunday Service took place in Kingston, Jamaica this past weekend.

In the gap between Kanye's original release date and now another unreleased album of his, Yandhi, emerged on iTunes as a series of ringtones. The album was subsequently removed from the service.
