When Kanye West announced that his album DONDA would be released today, Friday, July 23, fans instantly anticipated his new music.
Unfortunately, after back-to-back listening parties, numerous praises for the project, and a few last-minute feature additions, DONDA is still incomplete. This is a fact because the album isn’t out yet, despite the reported release date. West has yet to address why DONDA failed to drop at midnight.
Yesterday the Chicago rapper filled Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium for his second listening party for Donda.
During the Donda show, which is named after West’s late mother, Ye played several tracks with features from some of the biggest names in rap music.
Fans were even able to live-stream the event on Apple Music.
The last track Kanye played featured a verse from Jay-Z. Hov’s verse nearly broke the internet with a bar from his verse. Jay-Z raps: “This might be the return of the throne Throne/ Hova and Yeezus/ Like Moses and Jesus/ You’re not in control of my thesis.”
We all know Kanye is a perfectionist, so the fact that he wants to put out a perfect project is expected from the music and fashion mogul. But fans are still upset that the album isn’t here today.
Fans took it to Twitter to express their frustration.
Do you think we’ll get Kanye West highly anticipated release DONDA before the day is over?
