Kanye West announces 'Jesus Is King Part II' with Dr. Dre, teases opera at Hollywood Bowl

Charles Trepany, USA TODAY

"Jesus Is King" may have just come out last month, but Kanye West says a sequel already is in the works.

West took to Twitter Monday to announce he and fellow rapper Dr. Dre are collaborating on a follow-up to West's latest album.

Along with a photo of the rappers together in a studio, West wrote on Twitter, "Ye and Dre Jesus is King Part II coming soon."

Though West did not provide further details about this project, he has previously discussed an album called "Jesus Is Born," planned for a Christmas Day release.

USA TODAY has reached out to West's rep for further comment.

The day before on Twitter, West announced he will perform an opera at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Nov. 24.

"Invite artwork by Nick Knight," he wrote, along with an image of a gold tablet bearing the words, "A Kanye West Opera"

The performance, slated on the Hollywood Bowl's website as "Kanye West: Nebuchadnezzar - An Opera," is directed by Vanessa Beecroft and will feature "(m)usic with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song," according to West's tweet.

West discussed his musical and personal turn to Christianity, as well as the inspiration behind "Jesus Is King," in an interview with DJ Zane Lowe on Apple Music in October.

"Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me," West told Lowe during a nearly two-hour conversation.

In a video clip of his interview with Lowe, the rapper described how being hospitalized gave him opportunity to reflect.

In 2016, reports emerged that West had been hospitalized due to exhaustion. In subsequent interviews with TMZ and "Breakfast Club" radio host Charlamagne tha God in 2018, West discussed how liposuction, opioid use and his wife Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery contributed to a downward spiral that landed him in the hospital.

"The most space that I had to think is when I went to the hospital," West told Lowe. "One of the things that happened when I went to the hospital is I started reading the Bible and I started writing, copying out Bible verses, and a person came to my house that wasn’t a Christian and told me come over, and 30 minutes later I was in handcuffs headed to the hospital."

He continued: "Now this person very well may have saved my life because, when you’re in an episode you could jump off the side of a balcony, you can stab your eye out. … You can do a lot of things when you’re ramped up like that, but one of the things that people do now is they try to discriminate against my mind and my thoughts because of that moment."

West also described how his life has improved through religion.

"There was a time I was letting, you know, what high fashion had done for me. I was letting, you know, what the Hennessy had done for me," he said, "But now I’m letting, you know, what Jesus has done for me, and in that I’m no longer a slave. I’m a son now, a son of God. I’m free."
