When is Donda out?

Today (23 July) marks the date on which Donda, the new record from rap superstar Kanye West, is expected to drop. The album is named after West's mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 aged 58 following complications from cosmetic surgery. nationalworld.comKanye West: Donda album release date and time, is it on Spotify, tracklist – and where to stream it in the UK?

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

KANYE West's new album tribute to his mom debuted at an event on Thursday night in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium as he rapped about "losing his family" ahead of his divorce from Kim Kardashian.

In emotional verses of his song "Love Unconditionally," the Yeezus artist repeated: "I'm losing my family / I'm losing my family / I'm losing my family."

Kanye reportedly told Kim about the personal nature of the song before his performance so as not to "blindside" the TV star.

An insider told E! News: "Kanye did write a song about Kim and their marriage and Kim gave her input about it.

"Kanye respects Kim a lot and wants to keep the family unit. Now that they have had space, Kim feels relieved that they can be cordial and spend time together for the sake of the kids."

His album is named after his late mother, Donda West, who passed away at age 58.

Kanye originally planned to drop his album Donda, named for his late mother, last July, but it was never released. However, he confirmed the album will now be released on July 24.

Meanwhile, rumors are swirling that the album's release has been pushed to August 6.

On November 10, 2007, Donda West died of coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty.

She underwent liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast reduction the day before she died.

She was 58 years old at the time of her death.

Records indicated that in 2001, two malpractice lawsuits against Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who performed procedures on Donda, ended in judgments of $217,337 and $250,000.

KANYE SAID HE HAS 'HIDDEN A LOT OF LIES' AT ALBUM LAUNCH

At the chaotic launch of his new album Donda, Kanye appeared with a stocking over his face as he admitted he had “hidden a lot of lies” and repeatedly ranted: “I’m losing my family” — in scenes likely to spark further concern for his wellbeing.

Taking to the stage in Atlanta, Georgia, to present new track Welcome To My Life, he wailed: “I’m losing my family, God how could you leave? I hid a hundred lies but I repent for everything and I’m going to do it again.”

Kanye, 44, later rapped that he went into “deep depression” after her death, before playing clips in which she says: “Two lessons my father passed along to his children.

“The first is that no matter what, you never abandon your family. The second is that no matter what, you must love unconditionally.”

FAN POSTS SHOCKING TIKTOK OF FAKING A BACKSTAGE PASS

A fan posted a shocking TikTok showing how he forged a press pass to sneak backstage and snag "better seats than Kim."

Journalist Jewel Wicker posted the TikTok, expressing concern at how easy it was for someone to sneak into the concert's backstage.

She wrote: "I had a brief moment while waiting to be credentialed where I thought about how someone could do this. To see someone actually did is pretty terrifying."

Kanye West's new album Donda hasn't been made available to Spotify just yet.

However, fans shouldn't fret as the album - a tribute to the rap genius' late mother Donda - will be dropping on the streaming platform later on.

Yeezy hosted a listening party in Atlanta, Georgia, to preview his new album.

The full release of his album will soon follow.

A flurry of followers were equally unimpressed by the expensive nibbles and took to social media to share their confusion.

Another posted: "This dude has lost his damn mind."

A third commented: "$50 for chicken tenders??!!.... F*** THAT!!!"

One fan cheekily shared: "When a Kardashian leaves you, you have to supplement your income with sweet chicken tenders $$$."

KANYE CHARGED $50 FOR CHICKEN FINGERS

Kanye was blasted by fans for charging $50 for chicken fingers and $65 for a snack basket during the Donda listening party.

The rapper, 44, previewed his new album in Atlanta last night but some fans were left gobsmacked by the pricey refreshments on offer.

Kanye's fan were baffled by the "overpriced" snacks which were on sale during the event.

One bewildered Twitter user shared a snap of the food board with the costs, writing: "Come on Kanye West."

Kim filed for divorce from her husband back in February after separating months before.

They both have filed for joint and physical custody of their four children and have remained adamant about focusing on co-parenting.

While promoting the album, Kanye shared his new music video for the song No Child Left Behind that featured track star Sha'Carri Richardson.

The running star starred in a Beats by Dre commercial for the song during the NBA finals Tuesday night.

In Kanye's video, the 21-year-old worked up a sweat as Kanye sang: “He’s done miracles on me.”

Fans have been eagerly waiting for the album – named after the rapper’s late mother, Donda West – since it was postponed by nearly a YEAR. 

The official release – "Kanye West Presents A DONDA Listening Event" – took place just days after the rapper returned to Instagram after a lengthy hiatus.

He first planned to drop his album DONDA last July, though it was never released.

TWITTER DEFENDS KANYE AFTER 'DONDA' DELAYED

While many on Twitter were complaining about Kanye's album being delayed, some rushed to his defense.

"Trust Kanye's judgment," one person said.

RUMORS THAT DONDA ALBUM RELEASE PUSHED TO AUGUST

As Donda has not yet been released, rumors are beginning to swirl that the release has been delayed yet again.

One person familiar with the album suggested it may be delayed until August 6.

Kim’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian, 37, was also seen spending time backstage as she stunned in a tight black jumpsuit.

On November 10, 2007, Donda West died of coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty.

She underwent liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast reduction the day before she died.

She was 58 years old at the time of her death.

Records indicated that in 2001, two malpractice lawsuits against Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who performed procedures on Donda, ended in judgments of $217,337 and $250,000.

Kanye leaked most of the song titles from his Donda before the release of the album yesterday.

The rapper, 44, shared a black and white photo of himself sitting in front of a partially-obscured whiteboard featuring the track list.

Kanye faced away from the camera and wore a shirt that had "Donda" written on the back.

He shared the photo - which appeared to have been taken in a recording studio - on Instagram on Wednesday.

Although Donda is yet to be released to platforms, Ye's fans will find it easy to stream.

Apple Music and Spotify Premium users can have access to unlimited music for the price of $9.99 a month.

TIDAL users, on the other hand, can have the same opportunity for the monthly cost of $10.99.

Some Spotify users have already leaked several snippets of the album, after it was last teased this Tuesday, July 20, during the NBA finals.

The matching outfits may lead fans to wonder if Kanye styled Kim, which he had been known to do throughout their marriage.

The Sun exclusively revealed in February that the couple's marriage ended when they had a huge blowout fight about where to go for vacation during the summer.

In the court documents obtained by The Sun, Kim cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason why she was ending her marriage to the rapper.

The papers further confirmed that Kim, 40, is seeking joint physical legal custody of their four children: North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one.

Kanye reportedly told Kim about the personal nature of Love Unconditionally before his performance as he didn't want to "blindside" the KUWTK star.

"Kanye did write a song about Kim and their marriage and Kim gave her input about it," an insider told E! News.

"He was respectful and gave her the heads up, and did not want to blindside her.

Kanye West Gets Emotional About 'Losing My Family' at Album Release

Entertainment Tonight 25 July, 2021 - 01:40am

Friends, Collaborators Say Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Is Now Dropping in August (UPDATE)

Complex 24 July, 2021 - 10:33am

TMZ reports the multi-hyphenate decided to stay at the Atlanta venue as he completes his long-awaited 10th studio album, Donda. Ye arrived at the stadium earlier this week to host a second listening party for the project, which was expected to arrive on Friday; however, he reportedly decided to push the effort back after being inspired by the Atlanta crowd.

According to the outlet, Ye also scrapped his plans to perform at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday, presumably to complete Donda. Kanye’s team has yet to confirm the reports.

Kanye has pushed—and completely scrapped—albums in the past, but this latest information from his friends comes just days after Yeezy played a handful of fresh material to fans at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta during an album listening event. With features from Lil Baby, Travis Scott and even a mini reunion with Jay-Z, buzz around the album has been major despite it not releasing on Friday as many anticipated.

“Kanye West will move the release date of Donda to August 6th,” Laboy wrote on Twitter, days after sharing that the album would drop last week. “Thanks for your patience. He wants to give his fans the best possible product without rushing anything. He loves yall with all of his heart. God bless.”

Complex has reached out to a rep for Kanye for comment. 

Collaborator Malik Yusef then reiterated what Laboy wrote in an Instagram caption on Saturday, also teasing the August release date and sharing that Donda will be his ninth effort he’s worked on with Yeezy. 

“We R super grateful, thankful and appreciative of all the love we’ve been getting for the new upcoming album #DONDA,” he shared. “This is the 9th album I’ve worked on with @kanyewest , Me and bro weren’t communicating during the process of Jesus Is King so I missed that one. But in my opinion it’s our best work thus far.Also, as a side note my homie @Justinlaboy is more kind and caring, than he is toxic.”

Kim Kardashian & Ex Kanye West Twin In All Red Outfits As She Supports Him At ‘Donda’ Premiere

HollywoodLife 24 July, 2021 - 10:08am

Kim Kardashian, 40, and Kanye West, 44, may be headed for a divorce but that’s not stopping them from hanging out in the same places in similar outfits! The rapper, who was wearing a red tank top and matching pants, held the launch/listening party for his new album, Donda, at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA on the night of July 22, and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star showed up with their kids to support him in her own red fashionable outfit. It included a form-fitting zip-up jumpsuit with long sleeves and matching platform heeled boots.

The exes were photographed and filmed at the event backstage. At one point, as Kanye was mingling with people and taking photos with people, Kim could be seen smiling in the background. In addition to her and the “Jesus Walks” creator’s kids, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, the reality beauty brought along her sister Khloe Kardashian, 37, to the fun outing. The younger sibling wore her own black zip-up jumpsuit.

While celebrating his new album on July 22, the day also reportedly marked “Kanye West Day” in Atlanta. The talented star was presented with the honor backstage at the event, which you can see above, as Kim walked around not too far behind. She also beamed with delight as he was presented with a certificate for the special day that was named after him.

Kim and Kanye’s latest appearance together comes after they’ve been making headlines for seemingly maintaining a healthy connection while co-parenting their kids. Although Kim filed for divorce in Feb., the former lovebirds have not spoken out publicly about the status of their marriage and were even recently spotted taking their kids to a museum in San Francisco, CA together. Kanye is also still sharing personal moments regarding his music with his soon-to-be ex-wife.

One source told Page Six that the artist previously played an “emotional and personal” song from Donda before a listening party in Las Vegas. [He] “actually played the song for Kim personally before the listening party,” a source told the outlet before confirming the track was “not negative at all.”

Kanye West Pushes Back 'Donda' Back To Sometime In The Future, Just Not Now

HipHopDX 24 July, 2021 - 01:05am

Promises of a new Kanye West album were completely shattered on Thursday (July 22) when Donda failed to arrive on DSPs at the magical hour of 9 p.m. PST. But those familiar with the G.O.O.D. Music founder’s rollouts weren’t surprised — while those who weren’t got a rude awakening.

Now, it looks like Ye fans will have to wait even longer to get their hands on the project.

On Friday (July 23), former Apple Music Curator Dylan Farella fired off a tweet suggesting it would arrive on Saturday (July 24).

“#DONDA been in production all day,” he wrote. “Finishing up mixing right now. Soon to the DSPs. Should drop by midnight. Worth the wait.”

— Dylan Farella (@dfarella) July 24, 2021

But as the hours ticked by, Farella’s subsequent tweets grew increasingly less confident.

“Remember the album drops on Kanye’s time and Kanye’s time alone,” he said roughly an hour later. “Unless this is your first rollout you know anything can happen. One tweet about Kanye and I’ve got a couple dozen death threats in like 30 mins. I’m waiting just as eagerly as everyone else but sheesh, y’all crazy.”

He added, “Nothing is ever confirmed. Not today. Not August 6th either.”

Nothing is ever confirmed. Not today. Not August 6th either.

— Dylan Farella (@dfarella) July 24, 2021

Farella is referring to an Instagram post from media personality and Demon Time creator Justin Laboy, the same person who claimed Donda was an instant “classic” shortly after attending a private listening party at a Las Vegas church last week.

“KANYE WEST WILL MOVE THE RELEASE DATE OF DONDA TO AUGUST 6TH,” he shared. “THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.  HE WANTS TO GIVE HIS FANS THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT WITHOUT RUSHING ANYTHING. HE LOVES YALL WITH ALL OF HIS HEART. GOD BLESS.”

He wrote in the caption, “ALBUM OF THE YEAR WILL BE RELEASED ON AUGUST 6th. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE. TRUST ME IT’S GOING TO BE WORTH IT.”

In all fairness to Kanye’s fans, they’ve already waited over a year for Donda to arrive. Those who were able to tune in to Apple Music’s livestream event on Thursday night were able to at least get a taste of what to expect — lots of gospel-inspired organs and emotive choruses.

One of the biggest surprises arrived toward the end of the show when Kayne’s Watch The Throne collaborator JAY-Z popped up on one of the tracks. The two longtime friends had been embroiled in a cold war for years, which appears to now be a thing of the past.

JAY-Z’s longtime engineer Young Guru confirmed in a tweet JAY-Z had come through in the eleventh hour to get his verse done with, “HOV did the verse today!!! At 4 pm.”

But like Farella pointed out, this is a Kanye album and “anything can happen.”

Kanye West Sings About 'Losing' His Family in Emotional New Song, 'Love Unconditionally'

Yahoo Entertainment 23 July, 2021 - 10:10pm

On Thursday, the 44-year-old rapper held a listening party for his 10th studio album, Donda, at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, previewing a song called "Love Unconditionally" that discusses their ongoing divorce and the impact it's had on him.

The track begins with the voice of the rapper's late mother, Donda West — who died unexpectedly in 2007 at the age of 58 — offering words of advice about love and marriage.

"Two lessons that he passed along to his children," his mother says. "The first is that no matter what, you never abandon your family. The second was that no matter what, you love unconditionally."

West then repeats the lyrics "I'm losing my family" as the track continues.

"She's screaming at me / Honey, why could you leave?" he raps. "Darling, how could you leave? / Come back tonight, baby / Come back tonight, darling, please / Darling, how could you leave?"

West got emotional as the song played on Thursday, dropping to his knees in front of a crowd of supporters.

Kim — who filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage — witnessed the performance in person, having made a surprise appearance at the listening party.

Her four children with the West (daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 3, plus sons Saint, 5½, and Psalm, 2) were also spotted in the crowd for the occasion, as was sister Khloé Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian/Instagram Kanye West and kids

In February, Kim moved forward with divorce proceedings following a challenging period in their relationship last year.

At the time, an insider told PEOPLE that Kim — who began dating West in 2012 and later wed in 2014 — never wanted the 22-time Grammy winner to be removed from their kids' lives and "has made it clear that Kanye can talk to his children anytime he wants."

As they continue to navigate their divorce, Kim and Kanye appear to be a united front as co-parents. A source told PEOPLE earlier this week that the former couple have been spending some family time with their kids.

"Kanye has accepted that Kim wants a divorce," the insider said. "For a long time, it was very hard for him. He was disappointed. He has come around though."

Since his split from Kardashian, Kanye has been linked to model Irina Shayk.

In June, the pair were spotted together celebrating Kanye's birthday in France. At the time, a source told PEOPLE that the duo has "known each other professionally for years" but Kanye "started pursuing [Shayk] a few weeks ago."

Last week, following reports that they were cooling off, a source told PEOPLE that the Kanye and Shayk, 35, are "very much still dating."

As for Kim, she "is fine with Kanye dating," a source told PEOPLE on Monday. "She just wants him to be happy."

Kim attended Kanye's listening party with their children and took in his divorce track herself.

Kanye West's 'Donda' listening event: Everything you need to know | The Atlanta Voice

The Atlanta Voice 23 July, 2021 - 04:27pm

Kanye West premiered his 10th studio album, “Donda,” during a listening event Thursday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

It was the first original material from the provocative rapper since his Grammy-winning 2019 album “Jesus Is King.”

Here’s what you need to know about the sold out event that was streamed globally on Apple Music:

He gave us a bit of Lauryn Hill flavor by not appearing until two hours after the event was supposed to kick off.

West is a known perfectionist when it comes to his art, so it could be that he was just putting some final details in place before he went on stage.

He and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, may be getting a divorce, but she still supports him.

The reality star/entrepreneur was spotted in the house with their kids (they share four).

During the reunion show for her family’s reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which aired last month, Kardashian West talked about the state of their soon to be un-union.

“We have an amazing co-parenting relationship and I respect him so much,” she said. “That was my friend first, first and foremost for a long time so I can’t see that going away. I will forever be Kanye’s biggest fan.”

Her sister Khloe Kardashian was reportedly also there.

West was silent, just playing his tracks.

Given how much he’s known for both his high energy shows and being outspoken, it was a totally different vibe for him.

The album is named for his beloved mother, Donda West, who died at the age of 58 in 2007 following cosmetic surgery.

The pair of superstar rappers go back since the 1990s when West produced for Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records.

They collaborated on the 2011 album “Watch the Throne” album and toured together.

But in recent years things appeared to be tense between the two.

Jay-Z talked about the strain in 2018 while talking to David Letterman on his Netflix series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” in which Jay-Z said West was his “brother.”

“We’re beyond friends. Like literally, my little brother is Kanye,” Jay-Z said. “And like your little brother, things happen sometimes.”

The following month West told radio host Charlamagne The God he had feelings about Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé, not appearing at his wedding to Kardashian.

“I was hurt about them not coming to the wedding,” West said. “I understand they were going through some things, but if it’s family, you’re not going to miss a wedding.”

On Thursday night Jay-Z could be heard rapping, “This might be the return of the Throne. Hova and Yeezus, like Moses and Jesus.”

“Donda” is expected to be released Friday.
