The project doesn’t have an official release date yet, but Kanye fans will get to listen to his long-awaited new album with a listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The award-winning rapper will play the album, named in honour of his late mother, in front of what will surely be a packed stadium.

Images of the cover art from the album were unveiled on Monday just before tickets for the album listening party were released.


Artist Lil Nas X once again used his brilliant social media marketing skills to tease an upcoming single featuring Jack Harlow, titled Industry Baby. Kanye is credited as a co-producer, alongside production and songwriting duo, Take A Daytrip. The song will be released this Friday.

Lil Nas X teased the prelude of the song when he shared a video titled “Nike v. Lil Nas X – Satan Shoes Trial.” The rapper performed a two-minute sketch acting out his own fictional legal battle against the shoe brand for his infamous “Satan shoes” released back in March.


Kanye teased some new songs at the invite-only event listening party in Las Vegas with family and friends on Monday 19 July.

Snippets of the private event surfaced online, artists such as Lil Baby and Pusha T were reportedly heard on West’s unreleased songs.


Pusha T posted the details of Kanye’s listening event for his upcoming project ‘Donda.’ The event will be held at Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The G.O.O.D Music label manager revealed the details of the event in a very simple text-only post, the announcement states that the event will be held this Thursday.

Music personality, Justin Laboy tweeted that West played his new album for him and NBA Basketball player Kevin Durant.

Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back, tweeted Justin Laboy.
