Kanye West Releases ‘Donda 2’ on Stem Player

    Kanye West has uploaded a total of 16 songs from his new album Donda 2 to the Stem Player, his $200 device made by YEEZY Tech and Kano Computing. The collection, dubbed ‘V2.22.22 MIAMI’, includes what appear to be unfinished versions of songs that he played during the listening event in Miami earlier this week. As NME notes, two songs that debuted at the concert, ‘I’m Finna Love Me’ and ‘Mr. Miyagi’, have not been unveiled yet. At this time, no album artwork has been revealed, either.

    Donda 2, the sequel to Ye’s 2021 album Donda, was reportedly executive produced by Future and features contributions from Travis Scott, Migos, Jack Harlow, Soulja Boy, Don Toliver, Baby Keem, the late XXXTentacion, Sean Leon, and Vorly. It also includes ‘City of Gods’, his previously released collaboration with Fivio Foreign and Alicia Keys. Four songs – ‘Security’, ‘Pablo’, ‘Open Road’, and ‘We Did It Kid’ – were shared on February 23, a day after the album’s announced release date. A prospective tracklist that West posted and later deleted last week shows six more songs that have not yet been made available.

    Kanye West has said that Donda 2 will remain exclusive to the Stem Player, claiming that he turned down a $100 million deal from Apple. “Not on Apple Amazon Spotify or YouTube,” he wrote. “Today artists get just 12% of the money the industry makes. It’s time to free music from this oppressive system. It’s time to take control and build our own.”
