Kanye’s newest project is in the works

Kanye West, expectedly, didn’t release his album on the day he announced that he would. His album, Donda, after his mother, Donda West, was set to release at 9 p.m. on Apple Music but was never actually released.

West premiered the album at an event in Atlanta, which was broadcasted live. He performed alone, on a plain white stadium floor wearing a vibrant puffy red outfit. The album was reportedly unfinished, but people were excited by some of the featured artists, including Jay Z, Travis Scott, and Pop Smoke.

Throughout the premiere, he broke out into prayer while performing songs that addressed his family life, specifically, his divorce from Kim Kardashian, which was announced in February. His daughter, North West, seems to be featured in one song. In another, West sang “I’m losing my family.”

West has a pattern of releasing his albums late, so fans are not surprised, but are certainly disappointed. Many hope that the extra time will allow him to perfect the album or work more on collaborations with other artists because the album’s current features were recorded very shortly before the album’s premiere.

It has been confirmed that West is still staying at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium where the premiere was held, working on finishing the album. The artist has made a space suitable for living, and even hired a personal chef as he continues his highly anticipated project.
