Kanye West continues to delay his 10th studio album, “Donda.” It was initially set for a July 23 release date, but that didn’t happen. That went down, after having a listening party inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the night before. A second listening event was held at the Benz on August 5, and the album still didn’t drop as planned, on the new August 6 date. This came after Kanye has been living inside this stadium for two weeks, and had also been recording more material for Donda there.
On Apple Music, a new date of August 15 was shown earlier this week. Now, a release for August 22, is what’s on display. 24 tracks are still the plan as of now, with the highly anticipated “Hurricane” collab, featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby, being on the tracklist as well.
At the second Donda album listening event, fans got to hear Kanye collab with stars such as Lil Baby, The Weeknd, Pusha T, Jay Z, The Lox, Jay Electronica, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, and more. That event also set a new Apple Music livestream record, with 4.5 million viewers. That held the previous record, held by the first Donda event, which had 3.8 million viewers.
