Kanye West ‘Donda’: Is rapper planning a third listening event? Upset fans say 'nobody turn up’
Kanye West has disappointed his fans twice after failing to release his 10th studio album ‘Donda’ on July 23 and then on August 5/6. The ‘College Dropout’ hitmaker has, however, has left no stone unturned to hype his latest full-length record with two mega-listening events at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Now, in the latest updates, it looks like the 44-year-old hip-hop heavyweight is apparently moving to a new stadium to finish his new album, as reported by XXL Magazine. Though it is not confirmed West might drop a third mega listening event for ‘Donda’ from a new venue. If we talk about the release date of the album, Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ is now expected to hit the streaming platforms on August 15, 2021.
Did Kanye West delay ‘Donda’ due to Mike Dean? Fans say ‘there was nothing necessarily wrong’
Will Kanye West plan a third listening event?
According to the website XXL Magazine, a rapper named Kaycyy spilled the beans on Twitter saying that the team was moving to a new stadium. However, the rapper later deleted the tweet. The hip-hop publication reported that the tweet read, “We’re moving to another stadium.” For the last few weeks, Kanye along with his frequent collaborator Mike Dean has been renting out space temporarily. Rumors were rife that the room apparently cost the Chicago rapper a hefty $1million per day. Speaking of the new venue, if the rapper is looking for a change in the same city, he might shift to stadiums like State Farm Arena, Truist Park, and Russ Chandler Stadium among a few other options. Since nothing is confirmed at the moment, he might also move to a different city.
Speaking of ‘Donda’, the recent listening event revealed that artists like Don Toliver, Young Thug, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Jay Electronica, The Weeknd, Roddy Ricch, JAY-Z, Kid Cudi, and a few others have been tapped for their respective guest verses. Though the official tracklist of ‘Donda’ is yet to be revealed, a song called ‘Hurricane’ featuring Lil Baby and The Weeknd is expected to land on leading streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music soon.
‘People should stop waiting for it’
Social media users, who are now tired of Kanye West’s marketing gimmicks for ‘Donda’, did not hesitate at all to brutally slam the rapper. Speaking on the same lines, one agitated user posted, “Stop overhyping Kanye” while another shared, “Yeah we never getting that s**t, ion ever care no more at this point.” One person said, “People should stop waiting for it lol, if it drops then cool, y'all don't realize that's exactly what Kanye doing in his whole life? creating hype for weeks/months saying the project is dropping then he either disappears for a year or he gon drop it on a random Sunday at 15:35.”
The next one tweeted, “Yeah I don’t blame him , $1mln per day was just ridiculous.” Whereas, one shared, “Watch another listening party with more new merch and no album drop, then another party with more merch then no drop, then a new stadium, new party, new merch and no drop. This is a marketing plan.” Speaking on the venue, one fan requested, “Staples center please.” Meanwhile, another concluded, “Nobody turn up to the next stadium listening we gotta teach this mf a lesson.”
