The Mystery Code “AR 1331 A” On Kanye West’s Album Cover Art Meaning Revealed

Kanye West dropped his highly anticipated album ‘Jesus Is King‘ a week ago and has been receiving lots of mixed reactions from fans ever since.

The album is an entirely new direction for Kanye West who has been all about his new found faith in God.

The gospel themed album is not really accepted by everyone then Donald Trump co-signed it which made some Black folks try to ignore the body of work.

The album’s cover art also came with a mystery code. The cover art is a blue vinyl with ‘Jesus Is King’ written at the top, 33RPMLP on the right, and Kanye West at the bottom. On the left, though, it reads, “New Songs AR 1331 A.”

Many have been wondering what the AR code stands for, and Kanye hasn’t really addressed it. Thankfully, Third Man Records co-founder and Detroit historian, Ben Blackwell revealed what the “AR 1331 A” stands for.

“It’s the Archer Records (AR) pressing plant code assigned to this 1970 Detroit gospel single,” he revealed in a tweet.

The vinyl is a gospel single. The tweet shared a photo of the A-Side which included two songs from Rubye Shelton, “I Want The World To Know Jesus” and “God’s Going To Destroy This Nation.”
