MUSIC – Have you been looking forward to it since 2019? He is coming. Rapper Kanye West’s new album, titled “Donda”, will be released this Friday, July 23, 2021. The singer announced his new album in an advertisement sponsored by the headphone brand “Beats by Dre”.

The excerpt shows one of America’s fastest women, Sha’Carri Richardson, who was not selected for the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for marijuana. The American track and field star appears running a 100m sprint with his headphones in his ears, while one of Kanye West’s new singles titled “No Child Left Behind” plays in the background.

“Donda” in honor of her deceased mother

The commercial has not escaped any fan, not even basketball players. Indeed, the video was shown during Game 6 of the NBA Finals in the United States, which pitted the Milwaukee Bucks against the Phoenix Suns. But that’s not all, the singer will organize an event to listen to his album in preview in the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta this Thursday, July 22. In order not to neglect its fans around the world, the “listening party” will be broadcast live at 2 am (French time) on Apple Music.

The event is not trivial for this singer who has always had a grandiose approach with his fans. In 2016, he released his album “The Life of Pablo” during a fashion show at Madison Square Garden in New York. “Donda” will be his 10th album after “Jesus is King” released in 2019 and promises to be just as breathtaking. The title also refers to the name of his mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 at the age of 58 and to whom he wants to pay tribute with his new album.

A song about Kim Kardashian?

Kanye West will thus be able to confirm or silence the many rumors that run around his album. Indeed, last week fans of the rapper were already impatient when they saw a video of the singer in the studio with Tyler, The Creator. A song about his divorce from the famous Kim Kardashian is also expected to appear. Several rumors said that the lyrics to “Welcome to my life” were negative towards the reality TV star, but according to Page Six the piece approaches the situation with emotion and without violence.

A cover of the album was also broadcast on social networks. It was rumored that it was a work done by the rapper’s daughter, North West. But it would ultimately be a work by artist Louise Bourgeois for her series “Blue heads and red women”. Information that will or not be confirmed by Kanye West this Friday. In the meantime, influencer Justin Laboy has made the singer’s fans mouth watering by describing the album “light years ahead of its time”.
