Kanye West’s third “Donda” album listening event is still going down in Chicago, as he is playing records from his upcoming 10th studio album. Many of these sound similar, as they were played at the two listening events in Atlanta. There have been plenty of surprise so far tonight though, which include features from the legendary Lauryn Hill, and DaBaby.
The DaBaby collab caught many in attendance off guard, as well as social media. The Charlotte rapper has been getting canceled over the past month, due to anti-LGBTQ comments, along with remarks against people who have HIV/AIDS. DaBaby has since been removed from the lineup of over 10 festivals, and is no longer listed on the credit for Dua Lipa’s remix for her international hit single, “Levitating.”
This is also the same track that Jay Z appeared on, in the last listening event. Many assume that DaBaby replaced Hov on here. This might not end up being the case though, as Kanye has been switching things up for these listening events. Jay and DaBaby could very well both be on this song, when the Donda album is finally out, on streaming outlets.
DaBaby also joined Kanye West and Marylin Manson, on stage, during this event. Check out Twitter reactions to DaBaby being on Kanye West’s “Donda” album, along with footage of them on stage, below.
