And so here is “Donda,” a PR spectacle for the summer of 2021.
It’s a hit, and it’s pretty good, the tracks are excellent, highly listenable and accessible.
But now: how short are memories?
It was only a year ago that Kanye West was running for president, supporting Donald Trump, meeting him in the Oval Office.
Everyone was outraged as Kanye melted down, carried on, ranted on Twitter like a loony toon.
Is all forgiven? Do we forgive and forget and just move on? “Donda” will be a referendum on short term memory loss.
