Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back 😤 #Respectfully

Kim Kardashian, is a successful entrepreneur, mother, and television personality, who has risen above many obstacles and dramatic moments in and around her, in the past decade.
She is popularly known as one of the stars of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” and for being married to rapper, Kanye West. A few weeks ago, the pair called it quits on their marriage, and began to take steps towards an annulment to the surprise of millions of fans.
Now, it seems like the media personality is trying to give love another chance, as fans believe that there is a new man in the mix. Keep scrolling below for more information.
It has been weeks since Kardashian and West announced that they were planning to get a divorce. However, through all this, both parties did all they could to shield their kids from media attention and scrutiny.
On Saturday, July 17, 2021, Kardashian took to her Instagram page to share a rather confusing post that immediately sent her fans into a speculation frenzy. While supporters were captivated with her beauty, they could not help but notice the caption attached to the photo which translates to “You bring out the best in me.”
Kardashian’s cryptic post has been sparking many rumors on social media platforms, as fans are eager to know who exactly is bringing out the best in the superstar. All roads at this time leads to an unknown male figure that Kardashian may or may not be romantically involved with.
After the post went viral on Instagram, some fans took to the comment section to ask the mother-of-four some personal questions.
“Who’s bringing out the best in you now because we all know Kanye wasn’t doing that,” a fan asked.
Another fan also noted that there was something different about Kardashian, and it may have something to do with a new boo.
Although the 40-year-old has kept to herself since her divorce from West, her fans hope she moves on as soon as possible.
A few weeks after Kardashian and West went public with their decision to be divorced from each other, rumors swirled online that the rapper was in a relationship with 35-year-old Russian supermodel, Irina Shayk.
Following this, Kardashian was also reportedly involved with CNN anchor, Van Jones for months. However, in June, during a sit-down with Andy Cohen, she set the record straight for her fans.
“I’m not dating either one. Not Van Jones, not Maluma. I’ve seen Maluma a few times, always in Miami. Such a nice guy,” she cleared the air during the “KUWTK” reunion.
Despite the continuous dating rumors involving Kardashian since her divorce, the entrepreneur has always noted that her children will always come first in every situation. She disclosed that her and West have a great co-parenting relationship and that her family will always see him as one of them.
Furthermore, the soon-to-be lawyer is now more focused on her business, as she hopes to continue exploring different aspects of the entrepreneurial world.
West, on the other hand, has kept a relatively low profile since requesting for joint custody of his four kids; North West, Psalm West, Chicago West, and Saint West.

The "Get Em High" rapper reunited with Kim Kardashian over the weekend for a family outing in San Francisco, where they stopped by the Asian Art Museum before public visiting hours. Despite their ongoing divorce, Kim, Kanye and their four kids appeared to one big, happy family as they perused digital artwork.
Naturally, fans couldn't help but wonder if the pair had reconciled—five months after Kim filed to end their marriage of six years.
It's true that there was a period of time right after they separated where they "didn't have a lot of contact," a source close to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star exclusively tells E! News. However, the former couple is now "talking and getting along well" as they navigate their new relationship as co-parents.
The source explains, "Kim has always been open to co-parenting together and being able to do things as a family. Kanye needed some time, but he now seems more open to it."
Kim "gave him the space he needed" and Kanye reached out when he was "ready," according to the insider, who says they have recently started to communicate more.
"She knows how important family time is and wants the kids to have a great relationship with Kanye, so she's willing to do whatever it takes to see that happen," the source shares.
So, where does that leave his budding romance with fellow fashion tastemaker Irina Shayk?
In June, Kanye and Irina seemed to be linked at the hip after jetting off to France. He and Bradley Cooper's ex stayed at the luxe Villa La Coste in Provence, where an eyewitness told E! News they looked "incredibly happy and relaxed." A separate source dished, "They have been seeing each other for several weeks... Kanye has been flying in and out of New York to be with her."
Now, E! News can reveal their relationship is still going strong.
It appears the museum date with Kim hasn't changed his feelings for the supermodel, because the first source confirms that Kanye is still seeing Irina.
"They are still in touch and he has seen her a few times," the first insider says. "He is very interested in dating her and seeing her more."
In fact, the entire Kardashian West clan was "excited" to be in San Francisco together, per a third source. "Everyone seemed to be getting along great between Kim and Kanye," the source shared. "They were there for the kids as the museum is a very family friendly environment, and this specific exhibit brings out the childlike wonder in us all. By all accounts they were gracious, appreciative, and had a great time!"
E! News has reached out to reps for Kim, Kanye and Irina for comment.

"Donda," rapper Kanye West's 10th album, follows 2019 albums "Jesus Is King" and "Jesus Is Born." It's named for his mother, who died in 2007.

At last, Kanye West’s “Donda” will arrive. Or, at least a listening event for his long-awaited follow-up to 2019’s “Jesus is King.”
The mercurial rapper will debut the upcoming release – his 10th – at 8 p.m. Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Tickets, priced at $20 and $50, will go on sale at 5 p.m. Monday via ticketmaster.com. About 40,000 to 50,000 tickets are expected to be available at the venue, which holds 71,000.
Though West is long associated with Chicago, he was born in Atlanta and retains ties to the city; there are also no capacity mandates for large gatherings in Georgia.
West named the album after his mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 at age 58. No other details about the album – which West initially announced on Twitter in July 2020 – have been announced.
The album has been teased several times this year from people in West's circle.
The rapper's manager Abou Thiam confirmed the arrival of "Donda" in the comments of a now-deleted Instagram post in June 2020 announcing the launch of West's Yeezy Gap collaboration: "WestDayEver. Album OTW!," he wrote.
"The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again," Laboy tweeted. "Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back."
The initially announced release date was set to be the same day Taylor Swift dropped a surprise album, "Folklore," on July 24, 2020. The two have a long-running feud, dating back to the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when West infamously interrupted Swift during her acceptance speech for best female video.

The rapper's new album was initially set to debut just days after West, 43, posted a series of bizarre tweets in July 2020, some of which he later deleted. In one of the since-deleted tweets, West implied Kim Kardashian had tried to have him involuntarily hospitalized, saying: "Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up."
That prompted Kardashian to ask for "compassion and empathy," posting a rare, deeply personal message about her husband, saying he has bipolar disorder.
"I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions," Kardashian West wrote. "He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions."
West's post-Kardashian tweets came a day after he gave a rambling speech in June 2020 at a rally in South Carolina for his presidential campaign. During the speech, he broke down in tears, shared personal information about his family and made a bewildering comment about abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
Kardashian officially filed for divorce from the "Jesus is King" rapper in February after almost seven years of marriage.

West, with "Jesus Is King" and "Jesus Is Born," dramatically veered away from the kinds of songs that made him famous and toward Christian hip-hop.
In a review of "Jesus Is King," USA TODAY's Patrick Ryan said it was "West's riskiest effort yet."
"Here, he completely abandons his provocative rhymes about fame, women and mental health, and potentially alienates longtime fans with chaste lyrics about God, heaven and staying on the straight and narrow," Ryan wrote. "Interpolating Bible verses and Christian hymns, and frequently backed by a church organ and choir, the album suggests a bold new direction for the now-father of four."

Even though "Donda" was very tardy, West still dropped some new tunes in late 2020, after the announced release date, including posting a "snippet" of track "Believe What I Say" to Twitter in September.
Another song, "Nah Nah Nah," arrived in October. West called it the soundtrack to his future presidential campaign.
West was also recently credited as a producer on Lil Nas X's single "Industry Baby" featuring Jack Harlow, set to release this Friday.
In addition to continuing to churn out music during the coronavirus pandemic, West helped produce a memorial to honor DMX in April, collaborated with Balenciaga to create tribute shirts to raise money for the late rapper's family and released his first piece of the Yeezy Gap collaboration in June with the "Round Jacket."

Back in June 2020, ahead of releasing his single “Wash Us in the Blood,” Kanye West said that his follow-up to Jesus Is King would be titled God’s Country. He quickly pivoted, claiming that the album Donda (or Donda: With Child) would get released in late July. No album materialized.
West has shared multiple proposed Donda tracklists. One tracklist featured “Wash Us in the Blood,” as well as a song called “Tell the Vision.” Notably, West features on a track of the same name on the new Pop Smoke album Faith.
Kanye West famously debuted his album The Life of Pablo at a massive listening event (and fashion show) at Madison Square Garden in 2016. He also held various events surrounding the releases of the 2018 Wyoming albums: Ye, Kids See Ghosts, Nas’ Nasir, and more.

KANYE West broke down in tears on stage at his new album launch after playing a song about his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
In the song, he likens his and Kim’s marital home in Calabasas, LA, to jail. Kanye, 44, raps: “Tell the assassins I escaped from Calabasas.”
A source at the listening party in Las Vegas, said: “It’s a very deep, sad song about Kanye, with him reflecting on his marriage with Kim.
“He talks about the kids and mentions her taking everything. After he played this song he paused for like, two minutes, and cried. It was really sombre.”
Kanye held the party for his tenth album, Donda — named after his late mother — at the US city’s ChurchLV, for Christians. It is expected to be released on Friday.
He described himself as a born-again Christian in 2019, which resulted in a gospel album, Jesus is King.
Select people were sent invites just hours before the listening event on Sunday.
Attendees were made to put their phones in pouches so they could not record songs.
The album also features snippets from his mother, who died in 2007, aged 58. Kanye has previously told of his “deep depression” after her death.
Donda is his first record since Kim, 40, filed for divorce in February, citing irreconcilable differences.
In July 2020, Kanye announced on Twitter he was running for that year’s US presidential election.
Days later, during his first rally, he broke down in tears saying he was almost aborted and he and Kim almost “killed” their daughter North whilst pregnant, also via termination.
