Kanye West Is Moving to a Different Stadium to Finish Donda Album
As we previously reported, random things keep happening around Kanye West’s Donda album release.
On Monday (Aug. 9), Kaycyy, a rapper who is working closely with ‘Ye on the Donda project, jumped on his Twitter account to announce that he and Kanye are moving to another stadium to finish recording the album.
“We’re moving to another stadium,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
So what does this mean for the Donda album release? No one knows as of yet.
For the past few weeks, Kanye, along with his longtime producing collaborator Mike Dean, has been working on his new album at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Chicago rapper-producer even created a makeshift bedroom in the 70,000-seat facility just to record the LP. Additionally, Kanye presented two listening events for Donda — one on July 22 and the other on Aug. 5. Aside from a crazed fan bum-rushing the stage, both events largely went uninterrupted.
As for other stadiums in the ATL area that Kanye could move to, there’s State Farm Arena, Truist Park, which is an outside ballpark arena, Russ Chandler Stadium and many others.
Although the Donda album initially was set to drop on July 23, and again on Aug. 6, it appears the LP is still a work in progress. The album’s pre-order page on iTunes now states a new release date of Aug. 15.
Also, the song “Hurricane,” featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby,is featured as track 2 on the project. According to a report on Hypebeast, published on Sunday (Aug. 8), the song is available on select international streaming services, like Japan’s Line Music and Russia’s Yandex.
We’ll have to wait and see what Kanye West is going to do next in regards to his new move.
