It’s the third such event West, who filed to be legally known as Ye in recent days has taken place, the last having taken place in his hometown of Chicago.
Donda, named after his late mother, was originally slated for release last summer, but West’s perfectionist tendencies mean he has has delayed its launch several times.
Not the type to do things by halves, West brought out his ex-wife during the event as she was draped in a Balenciaga wedding dress during the track No Child Left Behind – months after filing for divorce for the rapper.
Kardashian West has been present at every event in West for the past few months, sparking rumors that they could get back together.
Other guests on stage at the 40,000-seat Soldier Field were controversial artists DaBaby and Marilyn Manson.
DaBaby has been widely condemned for the comments he made about gay men and people with HIV at a festival in Miami recently, as Manson faces a number of allegations of sexual assault – which he denies.
The trio stood on the porch of the set that represented West’s childhood home, as an army of dancers and a convoy of SUVs surrounded them.
Elsewhere, The Weeknd and Travis Scott both appeared on the album, while a sample of Lauryn Hill could be heard in one of the tracks.
At one point, West even appeared to set himself on fire inside the stadium.

In true Kanye West style, he appeared nearly two hours late to his event as a screen showed a montage of photos of his mother.
The last two events did not result in an album release, despite himself apparently living inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to finish Donda – but West’s team said the rapper was about to drop him imminently.
Donda West was an English professor at Chicago State University, but died in 2007 at the age of 58 from complications from cosmetic surgery.
