Although Kanye is making fans wait for “DONDA” it’s possible people are still trying to process what went down at his Atlanta listening party on Thursday evening (July 22). If you missed it, here are the highlights.
Kanye was ready for all eyes to be on him as he appeared in a red puffer jacket from his upcoming YZY Gap line, a tan mask, red pants, and a pair of unreleased Adidas Yeezy 1020Vs. The outfit was reminiscent of the one he wore for his performance during the 2010 MTV Awards.

Kanye addressed his divorce from Kim Kardashian in a song where he’s heard rapping about losing his family. He did however bring his Chicago brethren to the table with a song featuring Lil Durk and Jeremih.
At the time of the listening event features for the album were still being recorded, a picture of 2 Chainz recording backstage at the event was circulating on social media. And Guru confirmed JAY-Z recorded his verse at 4 pm on Thursday, hours before the event was to take place. It’s been 10 years since they recorded Watch The Throne, and now Hov can be heard teasing a “return to the throne” on the last track of DONDA, sending fans into a frenzy about the former friend’s reconciliation.
