Kanye West Claims ‘Donda’ Was Released by Label Without His Approval

    Earlier today (August 29), Kanye West‘s much-delayed album Donda finally arrived on streaming services, a couple of days after his third listening party at Soldier Field in Chicago. But now, West says the album was released without his permission, writing in a post on his Instagram account: “UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THEY BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM.” Though representatives for the label offered no comment to Variety, the publication cited unnamed sources calling West’s claim “preposterous.”
