On Saturday night (July 18), Kanye West shared a tracklist for a new album that is titled after his late mother Donda.
The project, which would serve as his 10th studio album, is slated to drop next Friday (July 24). According to what appeared to be the official tracklist, the LP will include songs “24,” “Off the Grid,” “In God’s Country” and his highly-anticipated Nicki Minaj-featuring track “New Body.”
Shortly after sharing the exciting news to Twitter, the father of four deleted the post. If the announcement is legit, it will mark the rapper’s first solo album since the release of Jesus Is King last year.
Earlier this month, Ye dropped a freestyle titled “DONDA” on what would’ve been his mother’s 71st birthday. “In loving memory of my incredible mother on her birthday,” he wrote. “My mom [is] reciting KRS1 lyrics. This song is called ‘DONDA.’”
At the moment, West is juggling a lot on his plate. As REVOLT readers might recall, he previously announced that he is working on an animated TV series with his Kids See Ghosts collaborator Kid Cudi. He is also cooking up a Dr. Dre version of his Jesus Is King LP.
During a recording session for the aforementioned project, Snoop Dogg shared a video of himself in the studio with both Ye and Dre. “Kanye West got some hot music. Shhhhh,” Snoop whispered. “Only I can get exclusive footage...It’s finna come out. Dr. Dre touched it.”
On the business front, West most recently signed a 10-year partnership deal with Gap. The venture will allow him to design apparel for men, women and kids at an affordable price point. “If anyone knows Kanye they know how much the Gap and Yeezy means to him so this partnership is his dream come true!” Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter last month. “I am so proud of him. You guys are going to love what they have in store for everyone! From working at the Gap to this partnership is so inspiring.”
