US rapper and music icon Kanye West now claims that from this point forward he will only make "Gospel music", according to a Chicago music promoter who claims that they heard Kanye make the comment.
Andrew Barber, the owner of music media company Fake Shore Drive, reportedly heard Kanye say "Only Gospel from here on out" while attending a private listening event prior to the new album's release.

West reportedly made the announcement on Saturday, during a listening party in Chicago for his new album title "Jesus is King: A Kanye West Experience".
Just heard Kanye’s new album Jesus Is King and saw the accompanying film. My favorite track is the last song and it features the Clipse. Both Push & No Malice. Kenny G is also on it. “New Body” has been cut from the album.— Andrew Barber (@fakeshoredrive) September 29, 2019

Kardashian told "The View" earlier this month that the new album was influential in West's conversion to Christianity.
"Kanye started this to really heal himself and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family”.
This is not the first time the rapper has claimed on one of his albums had a religious overtone, after also claiming in 2016 that his album The Life of Pablo was a gospel album.
