Kanye West has been teasing fans about his new album release for months, leaving super fans shaking in their Yeezys. Finally, the day has arrived. The rapper-singer-songwriter-fashion-designer dropped his new album, “Jesus is King,” today. 

The album (and film of the same name) premiered in L.A. on Wednesday, but left fans guessing until early afternoon today, when it was finally unleashed on the general public.
