An official press release naming West as the executive producer of the album also states:

“The Service features gospel-inspired remixes of classic songs of different genres, and also straightforward choir-led gospel tunes. The mix of hip-hop and spirituality has drawn great crowds and continues to inspire globally.”

Forbes Magazine describes the new album as “a rapturous, honest-to-goodness gospel album, a moving proclamation of faith and a reminder of what its creator can do when he gives his ideas time to incubate.”
