Kanye West re–premiered his “Donda” album last night again at the stadium in Atlanta. From the videos it looks like either he flew around or a stand in did, or it was an illusion.
Either way, no “Donda” appeared last night. There is some idea that the album drops today at 1pm on streaming services. Or it’s coming on August 9th. Or sometime in the future.
When it does drop (if), “Donda” will have a big moment and fade quickly. Even with 30 guest stars, the album will suffer from Kanye’s “Slavery is a choice” declaration, his presidential “run,” and his backing of Donald Trump. Unless, of course, his fans have amnesia, which is always possible.
So we wait for 1pm, and Godot, who is also coming then.
