Kim Kardashian West’s Favorite Kanye West Album Might Surprise You
It’s no secret the Kim Kardashian West is a big fan of Kanye West’s music. Over the years, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been spotted many times singing along to her husband’s songs, whether that be at concerts, listening parties, are just in the car.
But despite being a fan of all of the music he’s released, there’s one album of his Kardashian West considers her favorite, and it’s a record we would have never guessed.
Kim Kardashian West is a fan of her husband’s popular hits
In 2016, Kardashian West released a playlist of her favorite Kanye West songs to celebrate the beginning of his Saint Pablo Tour.
The tracklist included the rapper’s most popular hits like “Gold Digger,” “Famous,” “Heartless,” and “Jesus Walks.” The list also included several lesser-known songs like “RoboCop,” “Say You Will,” and “Waves.”
Though she didn’t share which of her husband’s songs is her all-time favorite, someone else in the Kardashian-West family previously shared their favorite Kanye West track.
In 2017, the couple’s oldest daughter, North, revealed that her favorite Kanye song is “Amazing” because, according to her, it’s “so amazing.”
The song comes off West’s less-lauded album, 808s and Heartbreak. Though it is the little girl’s favorite track, it turns out that that’s not the only song of his she likes jamming out to.
Around that time, Kardashian West shared via Snapchat that North’s taste in Kanye’s music skews towards the “Old Kanye,” as she posted a photo of her daughter listening to the rapper’s sophomore studio album, Late Registration.
“Jesus Is King” is Kim Kardashian West’s favorite Kanye album
Although she enjoys listening to songs from his older albums, it turns out that Kardashian West favors his most recent project more.
In 2019, a source revealed to People that the KKW Beauty mogul “much prefers his new album over previous ones,” referencing West’s ninth studio album, Jesus Is King.
Since religion has always been important to the West family, Kardashian West is a big fan of her husband’s gospel album and likes that it’s something their kids can listen to.
“This one is so much more mature and spiritual,” the source said. “Like music that their kids can actually listen to. It doesn’t have any foul language. She loves how Kanye is evolving.”
Before the album’s release, insiders shared that Kardashian West was a fan of her husband’s transition to gospel music as she “understands the importance of being spiritual.”
Since then, the KUWTK star has supported West’s religious journey as he’s delivered his weekly Sunday Services and drew massive crowds during Coachella 2019, where he was the first artist to perform gospel music in the festival’s history.
At the time, an insider told people that Kardashian West was “really his biggest fan” and planned to stand by him as he focused on his spiritual leadership.
“Kim is 100 percent on board with this,” the source said. “She’s a Christian, too, and she understands the importance of being spiritual.”
