Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ album listening party not only made noise for the people who attended the much-awaited event but also for its purported food menu which went viral after a photo from the venue was shared on Twitter. The event held at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday, July 22 saw thousands of spectators enjoying the listening session of the rapper’s 10th studio album.
Yes, Kanye West eventually ended up not dropping the album but as per the latest updates, he might release it on August 6. The food menu from the event was widely discussed for its eye-watering prices as many took to Twitter to troll the same. The “Event Day Menu” at the venue included all-beef kosher hotdogs for $40 and $45 for cookies and brownies among other items. Speaking of the event, West’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian showed up at the venue with their four kids.

If we talk about why Kanye West did not drop the album then the rapper, who recently returned to Instagram, shared a few pictures from the event as various other snippets also made their way on Twitter. The album was almost confirmed after Kanye West premiered a video of the song ‘No Child Left Behind’ in a Beats advertisement that featured athlete Sha’Carri Richardson. The ad saw subtitles that clearly said ‘Donda this Friday’ referring to July 23. Much to everyone’s surprise, the ‘Life of a Pablo’ hitmaker then did not drop the album. He has not shared any official statement on the same yet but it is rumored that his new full-length record might be still in its final stages. ‘Donda’ is now expected to hit the streaming platforms on August 6, 2021.
