After numerous delays, Kanye West has finally released his 10th studio album, Donda, today (Aug. 29). The 27-track collection is stacked with over 30 guest features—more than any of his previous projects.
Among the artists featured includes Jay-Z, Don Toliver, Kid Cudi, Fivio Foreign, Lil Baby, The Weeknd, Pop Smoke, Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Jay Electronica, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, chris brown, Lil Durk, Baby Keem, Playboi Carti, Lil Yachty, Vory, Ariana Grande, DaBaby, ’Ye’s Sunday Service Choir and more.
Additionally, Mike Dean, 88-Keys, Boi-1da, DJ Khalil, Dem Jointz, Audi & Wheezy and Ronny J are a few of the producers who assisted Kanye on the project sonically.
The rollout for the album has been insane. The Chicago-bred rapper-producer initially announced a July 24, 2020 release date for the LP, but that didn’t happen. A year later, fans were given hope that they’d receive the offering, but the release of Donda was to no avail. Nevertheless, Kanye hosted two sold-out listening events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on July 22 and Aug. 4. He then had another in his hometown at Soldier Field on Thursday (Aug. 26). The 44-year-old artist even hunkered down at the stadium in ATL and created a makeshift bedroom for himself so he could finish recording the album uninterrupted.
If that’s not strange enough, on Aug. 5 Kanye livestreamed himself in his living quarters, giving fans an inside view of his daily activities, including him sleeping and exercising.
Before releasing Donda, Kanye held a third listening event at Soldier Field in his hometown of Chicago on Aug. 26. Among the highlights included DaBaby rapping his verse on “Jail, Part. 2,” Kim Kardashian appearing onstage in a white Balenciaga Couture wedding dress and ‘Ye setting himself on fire in a blazing stunt. Yes, it was lit.
