Toronto artist, Sean Leon, went from idolizing Kanye West to writing records on his latest album “Jesus is King”.
College Dropout is the first album I ever bought and is the reason I am making music today
stated Leon in an interview with 247HH back in 2016. In July, a Subreddit called YandhiLeaks was constantly announcing updates on a future Ye album; amongst those updates were pictures of Leon in the studio with Ye. And it was only until a month ago that Leon took to his social media to confirm that new Leon and Ye music is on the way.
Leon wrote, “Use This Gospel” in its entirety, excluding the Clipse verses. He also wrote on “Selah” and “Jesus is Lord”. Since the album’s release, it has been projected to debut at number one with nearly 300,000 units. Leon has since expressed his gratefulness to his current life and to Ye on his Instagram by revisiting his journey of trying to get off King St. W.
From writing these records on the Ye album to now being in the studio with Jay-Z and Skateboard P, Leon writes to his fans that he is energized and ready to get back to the release of his own music after working on a few other projects including Daniel Caesar’s Case Study 01.
Listen to his latest and highly anticipated record “Sorry” that released early September.
