Kanye West has made more changes to his Donda album — including removing Chris Brown from the project entirely.

On Tuesday (Sept. 28), an updated version of the LP was available on streaming platforms. Fans quickly noticed that Breezy’s vocals on the “New Again” chorus were eliminated. He was replaced by Ye’s Sunday Service Choir, who sang, “Thank You, thank you, thank you for your mercy/Make me new again, make me new again.”

Following the release on Donda, Brown called out the “All Of The Lights” emcee for leaving his verse off the track and only featuring his vocals on the chorus.

He shared his frustration with the move on social media, writing, “Kanye a whole hoe” on his Instagram Stories. After deleting the comment, he followed up with another post addressing Ye. “Nah he tweakin’,” he wrote. A source reportedly told The Shade Room that the Virginia native “was a little heated about his verse being removed from one of the songs on the new album.”

A week later, the “Go Crazy” singer shared part of the scrapped verse to his Instagram page, in which Breezy sang, “Is it too late for second chances?/Give my life a gang of blessings/Trade my pain for all the pleasure/Let your peace sustain my mental.”

Breezy wasn't the only person who expressed their disappointment with Donda. Soulja Boy also took to social media to slam Ye for leaving his verse off the album. “This nigga Kanye smh,” he tweeted. “Tell homie don't hit my phone no more.”

The “She Make It Clap” emcee then leaked the version of “Remote Control” that included his verse on Twitter. “If he didn’t like the verse he should of said that don’t text me acting like u fuck wit it then secretly take it off,” he wrote. “What kind of shit is that? I was working on my album too. I don’t got time for this shit.”
