When is Donda releasing?

Donda (originally titled Donda: With Child) is the upcoming tenth studio album by American rapper and producer Kanye West. Named after West's mother, it is scheduled for release on July 23, 2021, after having been delayed since July 2020. wikipedia.orgDonda (album)

Kanye West barely said a word during his album listening session Thursday night, but the mercurial rapper still had most attendees standing on their feet while hanging on every word of his new project.

West unveiled his 10th studio album, “Donda” in front of a packed crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. His album was named after his mother, Donda West, who died at the age of 58 following plastic surgery complications in 2007.

Pulling off the listening session — which was livestreamed on Apple Music — was an impressive feat for West, who sold out the venue after he announced two days ago that the first public listen of his highly-anticipated album would take place. Some of the big names who attended the event were Rick Ross, Khloe Kardashian and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, who showed up in a red jumpsuit with their kids.

Unlike West’s typical high-energy concerts, he appeared more mellow. He let his music do the talking while most attendees listened in silence and applauded at the end of each track of his album, slated for release Friday, that features gospel themes, hip-hop vibes, his Auto-Tune vocals, a track featuring his friend-mentor Jay-Z and recorded speeches made by his mother.

While sporting an all-red outfit with orange shoes, West sometimes walked, fell to his knees, and pranced around on a white flooring about the size of the football field, where the city’s professional football and soccer teams play home games.

The 22-time Grammy winner revealed in a commercial, featuring U.S. track star Sha’Carri Richardson, during the NBA Finals on Tuesday that his album will be released Friday. The commercial, scored and directed by West, featured “No Child Left Behind,” a song from the album.

When West began playing “No Child Left Behind,” he drop to one knee before he slightly lifted up into a track runner’s stance like Richardson, who will miss the Tokyo Olympics after a positive marijuana test this month. The rapper then stood up and pointed his finger into the air as the words “he’s done miracles on me” were heard on the song.

The crowd appeared surprise to hear when Jay-Z began rapping on the final song of the listening session. On social media, the song was lauded for Jay-Z’s verse that included “This might be the return of the throne,” a nod toward the tandem’s 2011 album “Watch the Throne,” which earned a Grammy nomination.

After the song finished, West made his way toward the end zone area, stared at the crowd for a few moments and calmly walked off the floor as the audience collectively cheered for him.

West, 44, is mostly known as being associated with Chicago, but he was born in Atlanta — a Georgia city where there are no restrictions against large gatherings. He gifted 5,000 tickets to faculty, staff and students from some Atlanta HBCUs including Clark Atlanta, Morehouse, Spelman, Morris Brown and the Interdenominational Theological Center.

West’s new project is a follow up to his 2019 gospel-themed album “Jesus is King,” which won a Grammy for best contemporary Christian album.

Last year, West announced on Twitter — with colorful cover art and a track list — that he would release his latest album. At the time, his tweets indicated that his project would release on the same day as his rival Taylor Swift’s project “Folklore,” but his album ended up being postponed.

It’s not the first time Kanye has hosted a listening event for an upcoming album. In 2016, he debuted his album “The Life of Pablo” during a massive event and fashion show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Several big names who attended the show included Kardashian West, 50 Cent, Lil Kim, Caitlyn Jenner, A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.

The last few years have been tumultuous for the Kanye and Drake fans as the two have appeared to be feuding on and off, taking jabs at one another, sneaking in petty references in their lyrical flow. In one of Ye’s Wyoming studio sessions, he offered to send Drake a sample that the Toronto rapper had fallen in love with. However, when the two had their falling out, Kanye barred Drake from using the sample, dropping his “poopity scoop” bars on “Lift Yourself”.

Kanye West Fans Mixed Over ‘Donda’ Album Announcement

Yahoo Entertainment 21 July, 2021 - 01:06pm

West officially confirmed the Friday release of his 10th album titled “Donda” in a new Beats by Dre ad that included a sample from the new track “No Child Left Behind,” as well as an appearance from deferred Olympic sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson.

The commercial, which was broadcast during the NBA Finals on Tuesday, displays Richardson running a 100-meter race in slow motion, while listening to the aforementioned track through the Beats by Dre earbuds.

Fans reaction on Twitter is a complicated swathe of arrogance, delight, apprehension and reflection. Some users have long ago cut themselves off from West due to his association with the Kardashians, as well as controversial political speech and support of Donald Trump. Others are anticipating the rapper’s newest project, insisting that West should be given a clean slate with the public.

swifties i understand your reasons for disliking kanye, i personally don’t like him either, but he has been incredibly impactful on the music industry and released a lot of great albums. the kanye/taylor drama is soooo old, i promise nobody cares anymore. just ignore him 💆‍♂️

And then came the MAGA hat Kanye. Alliance with Trump aside, I found his pseudo-truthing of the Black experience and "the culture" during that wave of interviews problematic and then some. That was a hard line in the sand for me.

Every time Kanye gets ready to release, I feel some type of way because I used to be a huge Kanye stan and now I just… can't. I can't with the antics.

It was also revealed that West will hold a listening party Thursday in Atlanta that will be livestreamed at 5 p.m. PT via Apple music.

The rapper also posted about his upcoming album on his seldom-used Instagram account, with several close-up photos with his face covered, emphasizing the chains resting around his neck. Each of them exhibit the name of a child — North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm —from his marriage with Kim Kardashian.

“Donda’s” title is in tribute to West’s late mother, who passed away on November 10, 2007. The album was initially set to release in 2020 and is the artist’s next effort after 2019’s “Jesus Is King,” which won the Grammy for Contemporary Christian Album.

The ad is also promotional support for Richardson, who failed a routine drug test after testing positive for THC, and was subsequently suspended from the U.S. Olympic team on July 2. Following the suspension, several prominent individuals spoke out in support of the athlete. As noted in the official press release, “Richardson ignited weeks of divisive conversation and in-depth discussions around the expectations and often dehumanization of athletes.”

The release ends with further encouragement for the continued elevation of Richardson’s career, declaring, “whether she’s breaking records or the traditional athlete mold, Sha’Carri’s journey in the global spotlight is only just beginning. “
