The title of Kanye’s forthcoming and critically acclaimed album, Donda – bestows a doting sentiment since it is the name of the rapper’s late mother; Donda West, who suddenly passed away at aged 58 back in 2007.
It was a liberating experience to witness Kanye back on the forefront as an entertainer, and even more so when celebrating his album listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA on Thursday night (July 22). The reviews from each song had divulged into a zephyr of bliss from the audience, seemingly appreciative of Yeezy’s eccentric artistry.
However, Donda allegedly was supposed to release this past Friday at midnight (July 23), yet due to the habitual leaking of certain songs – most presumably the collaboration with Jay-Z, the album is now pushed back for another two weeks.
Fans were merely disappointed when trying to locate the newest masterpiece online and couldn’t locate it – nor updates from the Hip-Hop extraordinaire until Justin LABoy made an announcement via Twitter of the new album release date. It is unclear how he knows the official date – but it was clear that fans were disappointed from his apparent lies (gotta check the comments).
Until then, the world must wait patiently – although, many cannot seem to do so since an upload surfaced of a new Jay and Yeezy record alongside their reunion.
Apparently, another highlight of the listening party was Kim Kardashian and mother supported Kanye at his event, even wearing his designed-clad attire. As the sentiment of love and support came from the Kardashian’s, Mr. West in typical fashion – unveiled his disappointment for losing his family.
