Looks like Kanye West might finally treat his fans with his 10th studio album this week and yes, there are chances it might be ‘Donda’ which he has been teasing for almost two years now. A day after a short video of the acclaimed rapper from a studio with Tyler, The Creator went viral, he apparently held a secret listening party of his new album in Las Vegas over the weekend.

Media personality and former basketball player Justin Laboy was apparently present at the very private listening party along with Kevin Durant and if we believe his most recent tweets, then the 44-year-old rapper is dropping his new album this week for sure. Laboy shared a few insights while an invitation card of the private event also got circulated on Twitter. It is also reported that Kanye is planning for an album release event on Thursday, July 22. The Grammy winner had last dropped his album ‘Jesus Is King’ in 2019.

Is Kanye West dropping ‘Donda’ this week?

Laboy first shared that Kanye played his new album for him and it is apparently groundbreaking. “Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! 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 #Respectfully.” He again posted a tweet that confirmed that Kanye was releasing his new full-length studio album this week. “Kanye West album is really done. When it drops this week, we probably not going to listen to anything else for a while.. Let me go enjoy all the current artist I’m listening to until then. God bles #Respectfully.”
Sharing another insight on the same, he concluded, “Kanye had Kevin Durant at 7 feet tall dancing while the album was playing. S**t was crazy. Ok I’m really out this time.” Another source confirmed the news before the private event saying, “CONFIRMED: Kanye West is previewing his album tonight in Las Vegas! He is also the rapper holding the album release event at Mercedes Benz Stadium this Thursday.” Speaking of the recent viral video of Kanye and Tyler, what caught everyone’s attention was the whiteboard placed on a wall in the background which seemed to be a tracklist of a new project. According to NME, the whiteboard featured West’s upcoming album name ‘Donda’ along with words like ‘Remote’, ‘New Again’ and ‘Come To Life’ which seem to be the names of the songs which might make it to the album. 






‘I’m not believing Kanye’s dropping until I’m 4 songs into the album’

Hip-hop fans, who have time and again faced disappointment with Kanye’s new album release, took to Twitter in disbelief. One user requested, “Please Kanye, give us the Eminem featuring song.” Another asked, “What album is it most similar to? Yeezus? TLOP? JIK?” One fan asked Laboy, “Why is Kanye playing is album to you instead of real music heads? Dave chapelle, Mos Def, Jay Z etc.... I’m not excited by this news.”
The next one shared, “Is it a long album? Last Ye album I really loved a lot was TLOP as it had so many great tracks on it with the different styles he’s done over the years! @kanyewest make it happen!” One added, “He can’t trick us this time, this is like the 5th time he does this to us.” Meanwhile, another tweeted, “Man I don’t believe it’s dropping this week till I hear it but glad it’s on its way.” One concluded, “I’m not believing Kanye’s dropping until i’m 4 songs into the album.”
