Why did Kanye West delay 'Donda' release AGAIN? Fans feel 'ghosted', start meme fest
Kanye West appears to have disheartened millions of fans worldwide as he did not release 'Donda' on August 5, 2021, as promised before. In true Kanye style, West pulled off a a similar stunt few weeks back as well when he did not drop the album on July 23 despite promising the same. However, this time the hype was even higher as West even started a countdown for the release on Apple Music. West stunned everyone with his performance at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but the album is yet to be available on any music streaming service. However, it is available for pre-order on Apple Music and will be available on August 9, as per the latest update. Named after his late mother, 'Donda' happens to be West's 10th studio album.
With confirmed features from Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, Lil Yachty, Don Toliver, Baby Keem, Lil Durk and Playboy Carti among others, 'Donda' is one of West's most awaited albums. Prior to its scheduled release, rapper Juicy J tweeted a bet of $10,000 that West would not be dropping his album tonight. "10k bet Kanye don’t drop his album tonight," he tweeted, followed by another tweet saying, "Am I high again Or did Kanye not drop his album again ?"

Reportedly, the album might still not be finished, as Yeezus premiered a new version of 'Donda' at the listening livestream event. Even though West fans were not exactly happy with him failing to drop the album once again, they decided to mask their disappointment by sparking a meme fest on social media. Twitter users came up with hilarious memes and jokes about the botched album drop and even prompted 'Kanye' to trend for hours. Some even came up with bizarre logic blaming embattled rapper DaBaby for West not dropping his latest album. A few fans even commented on old tweets by West asking him about 'DONDA'. Here's a look at some of the best memes on 'DONDA' release.
"#DONDA Kanye trying to figure out how to upload donda," a fan tweeted along with a photo of a person staring cluelessly at a meshwork of wires and electrical circuits. "what would happen if you dropped #DONDA ?” Kanye: (in old video clip) I guess we will never know," shared another fan. A third fan wrote, "Why does Kanye keep doing this man we fall for it every time," while another tweeted, "by the time Kanye drops the album b**ch us kids WILL be ghosts." One user tweeted, "How I’m checking Apple Music, Spotify, CashApp, Disney+, and LinkedIn to see if Kanye dropped Donda yet."
