’Ye debuted “Nah Nah Nah” back in October 2020, with the remix following later that month. As fans await the release of Donda following its two listening party events held in Atlanta, Georgia, the remix of “Nah Nah Nah” would show up as the most recent release from him. Now, both versions are nowhere to be found on Spotify, Apple Music, or Tidal.
In the lead-up to the release of the “Nah Nah Nah” remix, Kanye and DaBaby shared screenshots of their text messages and previewed the collab. It hasn’t been revealed why the song was removed, but it’s worth reiterating that both versions were removed, not just the remix with DaBaby.
The Charlotte rapper has been at the center of controversy surrounding homophobic comments he made at Rolling Loud Miami.
Donda missed another release date following its second listening event last week. Initially it was set for a July 23 release date, but the record missed that date and was later bumped back to Aug. 6. It didn’t hit that target either, and now Donda is tentatively set for release on Aug. 13 or Aug. 15, according to the iTunes store and Apple Music.
On Sunday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey suggested ’Ye release Donda as it is now and continue to update it as he puts the finishing touches. “And…this is unlikely and maybe against the creative process…but it would be incredible if [Kanye West] put out Donda as it is now and continued to update it until he feels it’s ‘finished,’” Dorsey tweeted. “So we can all witness the work evolve in real time.”
Fans familiar with the history of Kanye West know he did something similar to this for the release of The Life of Pablo, his 2016 effort. It was hard to keep up then, let alone now.
