We've entered Yeezy season once again.
Kanye West premiered his highly anticipated new album DONDA on 23 July after announcing the record earlier this week. The long awaited follow-up to his 2019 gospel LPs Jesus Is King and Jesus Is Born, it was delayed for almost a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
