Every Artist and Producer Kanye West Worked With on Donda Album
Today (Aug. 29), ’Ye unveiled the long-awaited album, which was previewed at four different listening sessions—one private and three public—before its arrival. Among the artists featured includes Jay-Z, Don Toliver, Kid Cudi, Fivio Foreign, Lil Baby, The Weeknd, Pop Smoke, Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Jay Electronica, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Chris Brown, Lil Durk, Baby Keem, Playboi Carti, Lil Yachty, Vory, DaBaby, ’Ye's Sunday Service Choir and more.
The rollout for the album has been a wild ride. The Chicago-bred rapper-producer initially announced a July 24, 2020 release date for the LP, but that didn't happen. A year later, fans were given hope that they'd receive the offering, but the release of Donda didn't happen. Nevertheless, Kanye hosted two sold-out listening events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on July 22 and Aug. 4. The 44-year-old artist even hunkered down at the stadium in ATL and created a makeshift bedroom for himself so he could finish recording the album uninterrupted.
Kanye also gave fans an inside look at the creative process by livestreaming himself in his living quarters. A view of his daily activities, including him sleeping and exercising were all part of the show.
Before releasing Donda, Kanye also held another listening event at Soldier Field in his hometown of Chicago on Aug. 26. Among the highlights included DaBaby rapping his verse on “Jail, Part. 2,” Kim Kardashian appearing onstage in a white Balenciaga Couture wedding dress and ’Ye setting himself on fire in a blazing stunt. Yes, it was lit.
