On Jan. 27, Ye—the rapper formerly known as Kanye West—announced that his eleventh studio album, Donda 2, will be dropping on Feb. 22. It will be a sequel to his 2021 release, Donda, which was named as a tribute to his late mother Donda West, who passed away in 2007.
As you might remember, the album rollout for Donda was quite elaborate. Over the span of two months, Ye hosted a series of listening events in Atlanta and Chicago, which included guest appearances from artists like Fivio Foreign, Shenseea, Don Toliver, Marilyn Manson, DaBaby, the Sunday Service Choir, and more. According to reports, Kanye earned over $12 million from the listening parties.
It’s still unclear what Ye will do in the lead-up to his next album. But if we know anything about Kanye, it’s bound to be extravagant. While we wait for the next update, in the midst of a very busy news cycle for Ye, here’s a breakdown of everything we know about Donda 2 so far.
