After four official listening sessions and millions of words of speculation from the media, Kanye West finally released his ‘Donda’ album to streaming services on Sunday morning. It is unclear when the album was actually posted, but a press release from West’s label, Def Jam, arrived at 8:17 a.m. ET.
The album changed dramatically over the course of the listening events, with drastically different running orders and song selections and featured vocalists. Jay-Z, the Weeknd, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Pusha T, the late Pop Smoke, Baby Keem, Jay Electronica, Kid Cudi, the Lox, and many others appeared on its various incarnations. However, during the third and most recent event, Jay-Z’s fiery verses on “Jail” were replaced by new verses by DaBaby — setting off a firestorm of outrage online — and several other popular verses were dropped. However, the released version reinstates Jay-Z’s appearance and another popular one by Kid Cudi.
