Kanye West Drops 'Donda;' With Jay-Z, The LOX, More Featured

Kanye West dropped his tenth album Donda on Sunday (August 29) after three massive listening events and some album delays.

The highly-anticipated project features a bevy of guest stars; with Kanye enlisting everyone from Travis Scott to The LOX, The Weeknd to West's formerly estranged friend/mentor, Jay-Z.  The album boasts  27 tracks, and most are listed on streaming playlists for the album. Fivio Foreign, Playboi Carti, Kid Cudi, Ariana Grande, Lil Yachty, Jay Electronica, Conway the Machine are all among the features on the album.

The song "Jail pt. 2," which features DaBaby, was initially unavailable. Marilyn Manson also guests on the track. Both DaBaby and Manson have been at the center of highly-publicized controversies this year: DaBaby for homophobic comments made onstage at Rolling Loud in July; and Manson is accused of sexual assault by former female associates. 

Donda was originally anticipated to drop in July. 

West holed up at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium to complete the album before holding a final listening event in Chicago last Thursday. At that listening, appearances by DaBaby, Manson and West's estranged wife, Kim Kardashian West, drew headlines. Kardashian West filed for divorce from West in February.

Kardashian West appeared at the listening in a wedding dress. She shared the event on her Instagram page.
