Kanye West's highly anticipated 10th studio album DONDA has yet to be released, though Apple Music has revised its release date to August 13.
At Kanye West's recent listening event for his forthcoming album DONDA, only four attendees out of the 40,000 took up the stadium's offer of receiving a vaccine.
On August 5, West held the second listening event for his 10th studio album, DONDA, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Prior to the event, it was publicized on social media that fans would have the opportunity to get a dose of the Pfizer vaccine. This offer came as a surprise to many due to the fact that West has been vocal about his feelings in opposition of the vaccine.
A representative from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium told Billboard, however, that only four attendees at the event took up the offer to get vaccinated.
Both listening parties, including the first on July 22, were Apple Music's biggest livestreams to date. Despite their success, DONDA has not yet been released. Many believed the highly anticipated album would be available on August 6, but Apple Music has revised the release date to Friday, August 13.
DONDA follows West's 2019 album Jesus Is King and 2020 track 'Wash Us In The Blood' with Travis Scott. His other 2020 single 'Nah Nah Nah' has been removed from streaming services after the recent controversy with rapper DaBaby, who remixed the track.
