Thousands, perhaps millions, stayed up late to pray at the altar of ‘Ye for the release of his new album, Jesus Is King.
If timeliness is next to godliness, Kanye West didn’t read the script. The hip-hop star has history with being unfashionably late with releases, and so it was again as Jesus failed to arrive at midnight, as promised.
As the hours rolled by, Kanye was trending on social media as fans and reporters waited. And waited, and waited some more. They didn’t hold back, of course, as West and his broken watch became a lightning rod for memes.
