Kanye West’s new album (44 years old) is named after his late mother.
“Donda released this Friday” says in a video Kanye West posted on his Instagram profile on Wednesday.
The album is announced in connection with a commercial for “Beats by Dre” and gives a taste of the upcoming song “No Child Left Behind”.
West also announces a live event on Apple Music that will air internationally on Friday night, Norwegian time.
Thus, it appears that the Donda album is named after West’s mother, Donda West, who died suddenly during an operation in 2007.
The famous rapper has repeatedly talked about his close ties to his mother, who raised him alone after his father left the family when West was only three years old.
Her mother was also the inspiration behind the song “Hey Mama”, from the album “Late Registration”.
In 2015, West released the song “Only One,” with Beatles legend Paul McCartney on the piano, which was an exciting ballad about his mother.
According to Variety, the announcement of the release of the album comes a few days after videos appeared on social media of what looks like West and Tyler, The Creator together in the studio.
“Donda” will be West’s tenth studio album, and the latest project from the album “Jesus is King,” which was released in 2019.
Kanye West has not only received attention for his music in recent years. Among other things, he has been in the spotlight with controversial declarations, divorce and presidential elections:
