Kanye West sent his fans into a festive frenzy by dropping his Sunday Service Choir album Jesus Is Born on Christmas Day (Dec. 25).
"#JesusIsBorn" by @kanyewest is a straight praise break," one fan wrote, while another declared, "These sweet soulful sounds are easily one of the best Christmas gifts I could have ever gotten." Many fans, meanwhile, were simply excited to note that West — a notoriously perfectionist — put the album out on its scheduled day of release.
Featuring original spirituals as well as a choral reworkings of The Life Of Pablo-era tracks "Ultralight Beam" and "Father Stretch," Jesus Is Born arrives just two months to the day after West's more hip-hop-leaning gospel album, Jesus Is King.

If you’re complaining that Jesus is Born doesn’t have Kanye on it, you don’t get the point. It’s SUPPOSED to be a Sunday Service album. #jesusisborn

This album is the missing link of Jesus is King that I was waiting for. Thank you @kanyewest and Sunday Service Choir for bringing it to us on the best day of the year. #JesusIsBorn pic.twitter.com/wA9F3ydj96
