Kanye West ‘Donda’ hits streaming outlets

Donda was named after West’s late mother

After many delays and several listening parties, Kanye West’s highly anticipated Donda has hit streaming outlets on Sunday (Aug 29th), but not without drama. The 44 year rapper and mogul says his label dropped it without his permission.

“UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THEY BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM,” West shares in all caps on Instagram.

“Jail, Pt. 2,” his collaboration with DaBaby, was initially unavailable upon release, but has since been made to stream. West shared some screen shots of texts between his team and DaBaby, but have since been deleted.

The album features 27 songs and is available via Apple Music and Spotify. Lossless and as an Apple Digital Master audio versions are available.

Within the day, the album shot to No. 1 in 130 countries on Apple Music, marking a new feat for the rapper.
