Kanye West Holds Second Listening Party for Donda

START body

Just yesterday in Atlanta, Georgia, Kanye West held a follow-up concert to his first one on July 22 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for his new album, Donda, which has yet to be released to the public. The anticipated album named after his late mother was originally said to be released on July 23rd but is still not available to the public.

Thousands attended Kanye’s listening party at the stadium where he has been living at for a few weeks now to finish up his album. His latest album has features from artists like Jay-Z, Lil Baby, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and more. Kanye’s listening party was attended by his ex, Kim Kardashian, along with celebrities like the Migos and Rick Ross.

West has always been inspired by fashion and used that as a major point in the show at the listening party. West’s clothing line, Yeezy, is known for its items such as bombers, slides, and undone-like garments and clothing items. For his Donda listening party, West collaborated with Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia in creating merch for the album as well as directing the creative feel of the listening event. He even wore an ensemble from Balenciaga’s Fall 2020 collection at the show.

West’s creativity shined through during the listening party, with several singers and dancers in all black and brown tracksuits surrounding him in a circle, before being lifted in the sky in a cloud of smoke and lights.

Not only did West offer performance like no other, he also offered the vaccine for COVID-19 at his show, something that no artist has done since the vaccines were readily available to the public.

West also released Donda merch at the listening party which consists of two items: a long sleeve black shirt with a cross and the star of David with the words “Donda” written under it, and the Donda digital album. Merch for the album was previously only available at Mercedes-Benz Stadium but is now available for purchase on Kanye’s merch site at shop.kanyewest.com.

Donda will be available for preorder on Apple Music starting August 7 with a total of 24 tracks.
