It seems unlikely that Kanye West will release Jesus is King this Friday, as originally scheduled.

According to Variety, a source close to Kanye West says his new album Jesus is King will not come out on Friday, while Hits Daily Double reports that Def Jam executives recently visited West at his home in Wyoming, to either postpone the release or proceed as planned.
