Kanye West isn't exactly known for keeping his promises, but it appears like he's actually set to release his new album, DONDA, later this week.
He's hosted a listening party for the album in Las Vegas, hosting an event at Church LV. It's reportedly set to feature Baby Keem, Playboi Carti, Westside Gunn and Travis Scott, so it's set to be pretty stacked.

He's also announced a listening party event for the album on Thursday, July 22nd at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which has led the iconic Rolling Loud Festival to tweet at him to try and convince him to launch the album at their festival.
You busy next weekend? @kanyewest

Justin Laboy and Kevin Durant have supposedly heard the album, with Justin Laboy tweeting about the experience. It's safe to say that he's impressed.
Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back 😤 #Respectfully

Time will tell if Kanye actually releases DONDA, or if this is more of the same. Whatever happens, it's going to be an entertaining week for Kanye fans - hopefully, he doesn't let everyone down again.
