A representative for Kanye West has confirmed that the artist has moved the release of his long-awaited new album ‘Donda’ to August 6. Donda had been slated to come out on Friday, July 23, via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam Recordings.
Kanye West premiered ‘Donda’ during a listening event at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22. The event streamed on Apple Music, too, and broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record, with 3.3 million viewers tuning in to watch. The version of ‘Donda’ that West played in Atlanta featured his reunion with JAY-Z, plus contributions from Pop Smoke, Travis Scott, Pusha T, Baby Keem, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, and others. It also included “No Child Left Behind,” which appeared in a new Beats ad starring Sha’Carri Richardson.
