DONDA is out Friday on G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Records
Tonight, Kanye West revealed the July 23rd release of his highly-anticipated tenth solo studio album, DONDA, during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, in a new Apple spot featuring Sha’Carri Richardson. Scored and edited by West, the spot features “No Child Left Behind,” a brand-new song from the forthcoming album.
DONDA will premiere at 8 pm EST on Thursday at a sold-out listening event at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium. The event is being livestreamed globally on Apple.
Over the weekend, the music world was set ablaze with speculation over the album’s final tracklist and features as West was spotted in the studio with Tyler, the Creator. Cohorts like Travis Scott, Pusha T, and Lil Baby are rumored to appear as well.
DONDA follows West’s 2019 album, JESUS IS KING, which won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Album and made history with #1 debuts on the Rap Album, Gospel Album, and Billboard 200 charts; surpassing the Beatles and once again tying Eminem for the most consecutive #1 album debuts in chart history, with nine.
Alongside the news, Kanye West has wiped his Instagram and shared the clip featuring Sha’Carri Richardson. Watch below.
