Kanye West debuted his tenth studio album, “Donda,” during a listening event at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday.
During the global premiere of the album, which is named after West’s late mother, he presented several tracks with features from some of the biggest names in rap music.
Fans were able to livestream the event on Apple Music.
The final track West unveiled featured a verse from Jay-Z and was one of the most buzzed-about songs from the event. In the verse, Jay-Z raps: “This might be the return of the throneThrone/ Hova and Yeezus/ Like Moses and Jesus/ You’re not in control of my thesis.”
The two famously collaborated on the 2011 album, “Watch the Throne.”
Travis Scott, Pusha T, Roddy Ricch, Don Toliver, Lil Baby and late rapper Pop Smoke are just a few of the artists who are reportedly featured on the album.
West’s ex, Kim Kardashian, and their children were reportedly in attendance during the event.
