Sessions and Recording
The album was recorded in Chicago, Uganda, Miami, and Wyoming between August 2018 and October 2019. Selah, Everything We Need, and Use This Gospel were the earliest songs worked on for the album, all originating from the 2018 Chicago sessions.
The earliest known configuration of the album didn't include the lead single Follow God or some other key tracks on the album.
The Sunday Service Choir comprised of The Samples and led by Jason White appears on three of the album's eleven tracks. This is the first album by West to feature their involvement. The choir would later release a companion album to Jesus Is King similarly titled Jesus Is Born.
West informally toured with the Sunday Service Choir to support the album's release. They started performing with West one Sunday in January 2019 and have continued performing every Sunday since. While West says the goal of these shows is to teach people about God, there's no denying the album's performance was helped by these shows as well.
Jesus Is King debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart. The album sold 264,000 units in the first week, becoming West's ninth consecutive album to debut at number one on the chart. This didn't have much lasting effect, as the album dropped to number two in the second week, declining 73% in sales.
