On August 29, Universal Music released the tenth studio album by American rapper Kanye West Donda without the musician’s knowledge and consent. He wrote about this in his Instagram account a few hours after the release.
West also accused the label of blocking the song Jail 2, which is a collaboration with outrageous rocker Marilyn Manson and hip-hop artist DaBaby. It is noted that the latter recently got into a homophobic scandal after separate statements from the stage during the Rolling Loud festival in Miami. By the time of writing the note, the track was again available for listening.
Previously, on the Apple Music streaming platform, September 3 was listed as the release date for Donda, but the release of the record took place earlier. For the first time, West announced his new studio album in the summer of 2020. The artist’s manager promised that the record would be available for listening on August 27 — the day after the presentation in Chicago, but this did not happen.
Before the release of the album, it was reported that a fan of Kanye West from the United States went on a hunger strike until the new record of the musician Donda appears on all streaming services. An American named Patrick Widden recorded a video message to the rapper, in which he asked the artist to release a new release.
