(ReliableNews.org) – Rap lovers have been eagerly anticipating Kanye West’s latest studio album for weeks. The rapper held a handful of listening sessions to preview the album with people. His shows included the rapper sobbing on stage, lighting himself on fire and holding a fake wedding. Finally, the album has hit streaming services but not without drama.
On Sunday, August 29, the world finally had an opportunity to listen to “Donda.” The album, named after Kanye’s deceased mother, features some of the most popular music artists in the country. Jay-Z, a longtime rival of West’s, appears on the track “Jail.” Other artists include Marilyn Manson, DaBaby, Travis Scott, the late Pop Smoke, Chris Brown and many others.
Kanye claims Universal, Def Jam’s parent label, released the album without his approval. The music label denies his claims.

The rapper originally had the album scheduled for release in July, but it never dropped. Recently, Kanye blamed the delay on rapper DaBaby’s management team not signing off on his verse. When the album hit streaming platforms, DaBaby’s song was not on it but later appeared on “Jail Pt. 2.”
Kanye appears to mention his ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian West multiple times. For instance, on the track “Jail,” he raps, “Guess who’s getting ‘exed? / You made a choice that’s your bad, single life ain’t so bad.” The reality star filed for divorce in February. There are unconfirmed rumors the two are back together. “Donda” is West’s 10th studio album.
