Kanye West has announced a listening event for Donda 2. It’ll take place at LoanDepot Park in Miami on Tuesday, February 22—the prospective album release date.
After former G.O.O.D. Music associate Steven Victor teased the news of a sequel to Donda, West confirmed Donda 2 and its executive producer, Future, on January 27. (West and Future had previously collaborated on “I Won” in 2014.) Little else is known about Donda 2, other than that it likely won’t feature Kid Cudi, with whom West is now feuding. Last year, Cudi appeared on Donda’s “Moon,” as well as Donda (Deluxe)’s “Remote Control Pt 2.”
West, who legally changed his name to Ye in October, rolled out the first Donda with three stadium listening events: two nights at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, plus another at Chicago’s Soldier Field. He lived in the arena’s practice facilities in Atlanta, and invited Marilyn Manson, DaBaby, and more to join him on a recreation of his childhood home in Chicago.
After the first Donda events and the album’s release, the rapper co-headlined the Free Larry Hoover benefit with Drake at in Los Angeles. West is also the subject of the new documentary Jeen-Yuhs. He’s also likely to headline Coachella in April
