Kanye West premiered another version of his album Donda last night at the third listening party, which was broadcast live from Soldier Field in his hometown of Chicago. Marilyn Manson, who is currently facing multiple lawsuits for sexual assault, appeared on the stoop of a church-like structure West built in the centre of the stadium. West was also accompanied by DaBaby, who has been dropped by a number of music festivals following his homophobic remarks at Rolling Loud festival in Miami last month. A verse by DaBaby also replaced the Jay-Z feature that was played at the previous listening party.
West has been promoting the release of Donda since last year. The first listening party for the album took place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta last month, while a second event followed on August 5. The album never materialized. Yesterday, West launched a device called the Donda Stem Player that will be released alongside the album. Donda has yet to appear on streaming services — a preorder page on iTunes has a placeholder date of September 3.

"Don't try to test me.
I keep it clean, but they could get messy.
I talk to God every day. That's my bestie.
