It appears that Kanye West is preparing to release the follow-up to his 2019 album, Jesus Is King. Interestingly enough, it appears that the project he is preparing to release is the highly-anticipated, often talked about project known as Donda. For more than a year, fans have discussed the Chicago native flying to resorts to work on the project and stepping into the studio with Tyler, The Creator to arrange the album. Now, it appears that he is finished.
In preparation for the album’s release, West allegedly gathered together a number of people for an informal listening session in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to multiple reports, phones were confiscated upon entry to ensure there were no leaks and the album was played for a crowd as West stood on stage. Travis Scott, Lil’ Baby, Pusha T, Ty Dolla $ign and Vory are rumored to be a part of the project. In addition, there are snippets of Donda West speaking sprinkled throughout the project.
After the listening session was complete, fans began tweeting out their initial thoughts on the project. At this time, there is no word as to when the album will be released. However, many fans expected it to arrive within the next few weeks.

#Donda is good, kind of an extension of ultra light beam with better beats and a story. He talks about everything on this album.

This may be the most sonically impressive ye album to date. For those wondering he does swear but just n word and bitch. Features I recognized were Travis Scott, Pusha T, Kaycyy, and Ty Dolla $ign. Features 3 Donda West monologues that split the album into 3 parts
