Kanye West Delivers Emotional Performance of Song About “Losing My Family” at “Donda” Listening Event – .


Fans might want to get old Kanye back – but his streak of exit drama is really getting old.

After hosting a listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta Thursday night for “Donda” – an event broadcast live on Apple Music – Kanye West was expected to release his highly anticipated 10th solo studio album around midnight on Friday. .

But hours later, “Donda” was still nowhere to be found on Apple Music and other streaming sites. Of course, with Kanye being Kanye, the LP could still arrive anytime on Friday.

So, yes, we might have hours of waiting and wonder and refreshment ahead of us.

But West, 44, wearing a face mask, actually showed up at Mercedes-Benz Stadium Thursday night to play “Donda” – named after his beloved mother Donda West, who died in 2007. Shaquille O ‘ Neal, CeeLo Green, Big Boi and Jadakiss were among the stars present at the event.

And West also got family support from ex Kim Kardashian, 40 – who brought their children North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 – as well as sister Khloe Kardashian, 37 years.

Still, West clearly didn’t get over the breakup: he became emotional while performing “Love Unconditionally” while crying as he rapped about “the loss of my family.”

“Donda” also features guests such as Travis Scott, Playboi Carti and, surprisingly, Jay-Z – who, apparently crushing the feud with his ex-bestie, reportedly recorded his verse for the album’s last track at the last minute. earlier Thursday.

“Donda” follows the 2019 gospel tour “Jesus Is King,” which won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Album. And like “Donda”, “Jesus and King” – as well as its two predecessors, “The Life of Pablo” from 2016 and “Ye” from 2018 – failed to fall smoothly and punctually.
