Kanye West's 'DONDA' Is Finally Here
DONDA is here.
After a chaotic rollout, including a series of delays and listening parties, Kanye West finally released his long-awaited 10th studio album to streaming services on Sunday morning (Aug. 29).
The 27-track set, named after Kanye’s late mother, has gone through several iterations since he played it for fans at his Atlanta listening event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22. He lived and worked out of the stadium for two weeks before hosting a second DONDA event on Aug. 5.
His third live-streamed listening at Chicago’s Soldier Field on Thursday night included a replica of his childhood home and surprise appearances from DaBaby, Marilyn Mansion, and his estranged wife Kardashian, who appeared on stage in a wedding dress to recreate their 2014 wedding.
In the end, the final DONDA tracklist includes appearances from Kid Cudi, Chris Brown, Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Young Thug, Don Toliver, Roddy Ricch, Lil Yachty, Baby Keem, Conway the Machine, Westside Gunn, Jay Electronica, Pop Smoke, Ty Dolla $ign, The LOX, and more.
After a years-long fallout, he and JAY-Z reunite on “Jail.” DaBaby also guests on a second version of the song called “Jail pt 2,” which was reportedly held up because his manager wouldn’t clear it. However, DaBaby’s manager has refuted the claim.
