Kanye West and Dr. Dre are slated to release West’s Jesus Is King Part II. 

On Monday (Nov. 17), West took to Twitter and shared a photograph of himself standing next to Dr. Dre in a studio.

“Ye and Dre Jesus is King Part II coming soon,” West tweeted with the photo.

The announcement of the collaboration comes less than a month after West dropped his ninth album Jesus Is King, which is West’s first gospel album.

Perhaps, Jesus Is King Part II will be a continuation of the aforementioned album, based off of the title. According to Complex, West is also slated to release Jesus Is Born, a Sunday Service album on Christmas Day.

West has previously praised Dr. Dre. “I first met Dre in December of 2003. He asked me to produce a track for The Game. At first I was star-struck, but within 30 minutes I was begging him to mix my next album,” West once told Rolling Stone.

“He’s the definition of a true talent: Dre feels like God placed him here to make music, and no matter what forces are aligned against him, he always ends up on the mountaintop.”
