Donda will have its global premiere on Thursday in a live-streamed album listening event.

The new album is the Gold Digger singer’s 10th solo album and follows his 2019 gospel-inspired Jesus Is King release.

Over the weekend, Internet star Justin Laboy claimed he was among the first to hear the new album alongside basketball star Kevin Durant in Las Vegas.

Laboy added: “The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back.”

Kanye had originally planned to release his new album – which is named for his late mother – last summer, but there were several delays, including a failed bid for the US presidency.
