Rapper Kanye West revealed in an interview Thursday that he told people working on his new album, "Jesus Is King," to abstain from premarital sex.
"There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album," West told Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio.
Even though the rapper didn't elaborate on that specific demand, he talked about how religion has played a role in his life and music.
"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, 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," West told Lowe.
Recent months have seen the rapper embrace his faith in very public ways. West's Sunday Service, a quasi-religious gathering that's drawn stars like Brad Pitt and Kendall Jenner, has only grown in popularity in recent months.
And West's pastor recently revealed that the rapper almost quit music because he felt rap was "the devil's music."
