Kanye album now “expected” next Sunday

So, is new Kanye West album ‘Donda’ out yet? No, of course not. Don’t be stupid. As of this morning the iTunes Store has the new album – two versions of which have now been played at massive listening party events in Atlanta – as being “expected 15 Aug 2021”. So, who knows, maybe it will actually land next weekend.

Only one of the album’s 24 tracks is properly listed in the Apple Store at the moment, that being ‘Hurricane’ featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on the Kanye-net, fans have been chattering about the ‘Nah Nah Nah’ remix that features DaBaby not being available on the streaming services anymore. Many have concluded that it’s been removed because of all the recent controversy around DaBaby’s homophobic remarks at the Rolling Loud Miami festival.

I should probably have done some digging as to what’s going on there, but, you know, constantly refreshing the iTunes Store for updates on the ‘Donda’ release date and track listings is a pretty time consuming exercise.
