Yeezus is coming. Music announced on Monday. Man about town Kanye West teased new music this weekend with an invite-only listening party. Lil Baby, Pusha T, Travis Scott, Baby Keem, and more are rumored to be on the album, which still has a focus on religion, according to those who listened. It’s official: Kanye West’s next album Donda will premiere at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday, July 22, Live Nation and G.O.O.D. Twitter gossips posted the registration, which said no cell phones are permitted, as well as images of West wearing a full ski mask and gloves. Clips of the party in Las Vegas circulated online Sunday, amid reviews for the new music. The official date for Donda is unknown, though Justin Laboy of RevoltTV tweeted, “When it drops this week, we probably not going to listen to anything else for a while,” after listening to it on Sunday with Kevin Durant. One track reportedly features a recording of his mother speaking and on one interlude “a woman just says Donda like 50 times.” Footage of Tyler, the Creator in the studio with West surfaced on Saturday, showing a whiteboard with a potential track list.

Update, 3:45 p.m.: No one loves a listening event more than Kanye. ET. Donda will be the rapper’s tenth studio album, following Jesus Is King, his 2019 gospel album. No, it wasn’t YANDHI. Tickets go on sale at 5 p.m. It’s reportedly Donda, the long-delayed homage to his late mother. Photo: Marc Piasecki/GC Images
Yeah, we lost our invite, too. Apparently, he meant 2021. In June 2020, West said his Jesus Is King follow-up would be titled God’s Country, but later said the album Donda would be released in late July. Sorry to every rapper planning to drop soon.
