Almost a year ago this month, Kanye West was supposed to put out his new “Donda” album. The title is in tribute to his late mother, who passed away in 2007. West didn’t end up rescheduling a new release date, as fans wondered when it will finally be out.
This weekend, comedian Justin LaBoy said that West played this album to himself and Kevin Durant, as he was stunned by the content of this project. He also added it will be released this week. A Las Vegas listening party supposedly already happened, as some of the features on Donda are said to include Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Post Malone, and more.
A listening party will also be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday, as tickets will be sold to the public on July 22, at 5PM. The even is titled “Kanye West Presents Donda.” The album will supposedly be out on midnight, on the east coast.
West last released an album in October 2019, with “Jesus Is King.” The gospel-inspired album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and even won a Grammy this past spring, for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
