Six months after releasing DONDA, Kanye West presents the sequel.
Tonight, he will debut his 11th studio album during his DONDA Experience Performance at Miami’s LoanDepot Park. Like his previous event at Chicago’s Soldier Field in August, Ye has once again erected a replica of his childhood home in the middle of the stadium, where he will be joined by special guests.

The 2.2.22 performance was originally supposed to stream on Apple Music, but Apple reportedly pulled out after Ye turned down their $100 million deal. Instead, Ye put up the $2 million needed to stream the event exclusively via his own StemPlayer.com.
Instead of going to streaming platforms, Ye will release DONDA 2 exclusively on his new Stem Player. The streaming device, which is available to purchase for $200, allows users to customize any song and play four different elements—vocals, drums, bass, and music.
He has also launched a new DONDA 2 merch collection designed with Balenciaga, which includes hoodies, tees, and ski masks.
