The August 6 release date for Donda has been speculated since the original July 23 release day came and went. REVOLT‘s Justin LaBoy, Kanye associate Malik Yusef and TMZ have all labeled August 6 as the next chance for Donda, but now it’s reportedly official.
The Chicago-bred mogul took over Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium for a listening party for the album and TMZ revealed that the sold-out event was the most-streamed affair in Apple Music history. The livestream peaked at over 3.3 million viewers on Thursday night (July 22).
Yeezy fans in the New York City area could be in luck. Popular Instagram celebrity gossip page Deux Moi posted a pair of anonymous tips regarding Kanye West renting out Madison Square Garden this week for another listening party and the reveal of his Yeezy Gap line.

The event would be reminiscent of what Kanye did in 2016 when Kanye held a fashion show for Yeezy Season 3 and debuted The Life of Pablo at MSG.
Kanye’s Donda album is rumored to feature JAY-Z, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Roddy Ricch, 2 Chainz, Pop Smoke, Pusha T, Chris Brown, Don Toliver, Baby Keem and more.
