Kanye West released his much-anticipated single “Wash Us In the Blood” mixed by Dr. Dre and featuring Travis Scott off his upcoming 10th studio album God’s Country.
The music video was also launched on YouTube on Tuesday. The video, which is directed by artist Arthur Jafa, contains a montage of viral video clips, some featuring Black Lives Matter protests.
Jafa also created the artwork for the album, which is available in a variety of different formats including a 12-inch picture disc, 7-inch red vinyl, red cassette, CD and a standalone digital single; all featuring artwork by Jafa.
Kanye West’s 2019 album Jesus Is King debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, surpassing the Beatles and once again tying Eminem for the most consecutive #1 album debuts in chart history, with nine.
Jesus Is King also made history with #1 debuts on both the Rap Album and Gospel Album charts.
On the Jesus Is King album, New York Magazine wrote “There comes a time, when musicians devote themselves to big questions, where the biggest question of them all comes calling, the question of what, if anything, orders the universe… Jesus Is King is the man coming full circle.”
On Kanye West, NBC News offered: “It is not hyperbole to call West a genius.”
