Kanye West has been steadily releasing new music that has veered from being overtly religious, but the entertainer’s gospel album continues to gain notoriety.

The 44-year-old artist was nominated for six awards at this year’s Billboard Music Awards: Top Christian Artist, Top Gospel Artist, Top Christian Album, Top Gospel Album, Top Christian Song and Top Gospel Song. He won all of them, sweeping every category in the faith-based music genre.

West’s winnings were announced in the non-televised portion of the awards show, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday. His 2021 album, Donda, took home the top album honors in both categories, and his song “Hurricane” snagged the award for Top Christian Song.
