Kanye West releases ‘Donda’ after several delays, controversy

After weeks of delays, Kanye West has finally released his highly anticipated “Donda” album. 

West released his 10th studio album to streaming services on Sunday morning, according to an announcement from his label, Def Jam Records. The album, which experienced a myriad of delays as the artist perfected it, can now be streamed on platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and more. 

Named after the Grammy winner’s late mother, Donda West, the album was initially supposed to come out shortly after a listening event he held at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. However, West wasn’t pleased with how “Donda” was received at the time, later sharing an image of a room he was reportedly staying in at the stadium while he pushed back the release date. He held a second listening party in August at the same venue but still didn’t release the album. However, after a third listening even at Chicago’s Soldier Field on Thursday, he finally deemed the album ready for the public. 

People reports that the album features 27 songs in total, including tracks like “Hurricane,” “Praise God,” “Moon,” and “New Again.” Those who want to listen to it from beginning to end need to block off roughly 108 minutes and 59 seconds.

Fans who rushed to listen to the album early on Sunday were likely disappointed to see that one track, “Jail pt. 2” was listed as a track but wasn’t available to listen to. According to Variety, the track initially credited controversial rapper DaBaby by his real name, Jonathan Kirk, which may have led to legal and copyright issues that had to be rectified. Fortunately for Kanye fans, the track is now available to stream, officially meaning that “Donda” is out.
