Kanye West Premieres Donda (Deluxe) – Listen
American rapper Kanye West isn’t done with thrilling fans with the music just yet. He’s just released a deluxe edition of his “Donda” album, a project named for his mother who died from complications of breast-reduction surgery.
Unlike the original album, “Donda (Deluxe)” has 32 tracks and features verses from André 3000. And that’s where it gets interesting because the said verse had already been leaked before release.
Kanye West had dismissed the idea of a Verzuz rap battle with rival Drake because it had already been done, with him as the winner. He claimed Drake had leaked the André 3000-featured tune, which ended up the biggest number ever. But that’s by the way
“Donda (Deluxe)” is for those who missed the original project but who have their eyes for something bigger and longer – and oh, more appetizing. The compilation may not smash the record of Ye’s previous project, but as a body of work, there’s no denying its merits.
The project drops amid plans to make up with Drake. Ye had said in a video that he wants his estranged Canadian pal to join him on stage later this year so they can make peace and move on with their lives and careers.
Until then, dial Ye’s number.
