Just days after footage of Kanye West in the studio with Tyler, the Creator surfaced online, it was reported that Kanye West held a listening party in Las Vegas to play songs from his new album Donda. Now, Live Nation Entertainment and G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T have pubicly announced that West will be hosting A Donda Listening Event this Thursday (July 22) at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. No further details were provided. Check out the announcement below.
West has repeatedly teased the follow-up 2019’s Jesus Is King, sharing multiple proposed tracklists. After changing the title from God’s Contry to Donda – named after West’s late mother – he claimed the album would be coming out in July 2020, but no album materialized. Last December, West released an EP with his Sunday Service Choir, the five-track Emmanuel.
West has held various marquee album release events in recent years, famously debuting The Life of Pablo at a Madison Square Garden fashion show in 2016, though they have not typically been followed by the album materializing on schedule.
Earlier on Monday, it was announced that West had produced Lil Nas X’s upcoming single ‘Industry Baby’, which is out this Friday. He recently featured on the track ‘Tell Me Vision’ from the new posthumous Pop Smoke album, Faith.
