Kanye West to Host Listening Party for Long-Awaited ‘Donda’ album in Atlanta


On Monday (July 19), G.O.O.D Music’s Pusha T took to social media to announce the listening event for Kanye West’s long-awaited album, ‘Donda.’

According to the flyer, the event will take place on Thursday at 8 pm. The showcase will take place at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the home of the Atlanta Falcons.

Pusha’s post is amongst the several recent comments for West’s close friends involving the album.

Over the weekend, the “Respectively Justin” host, Justin Laboy, was spotted attending a basketball game with Yeezy.

Following their public outing, the internet host took to social media to express his excitement regarding the rapper’s upcoming album.

“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 wrote, “Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back.”

According to USA Today, the album’s initial release date was July 24th, 2020. West’s album was delayed due to West’s presidential campaign and ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian.

Donda was named after West’s mother, Donda West, who died in 2007. According to photographer Nigel D, who attended the LA listening party for the album, West’s newest album is “about having faith in God and overcoming adversity.”

Nigel explains that listeners will hear Kanye express “personal struggles and struggles others face.”

The album will also feature some of Hip Hop’s elite artists, such as rapper Lil Baby. A leaked tracklist revealed that Post Malone, Griselda, KayCyy, Travis Scott, and Baby Keem might also be featured on the upcoming album.

Kayne West’s 8th album, Donda, is rumored to be dropping this week.
