Kanye West is planning to hold a third listening party for his upcoming "Donda" album, reports Variety. The listening session will take place at Soldier Field in Chicago on Thursday, August 26.


As with West's prior two listening parties, the third listening party is likely to be livestreamed on Apple Music.


West held a public listening party for the "Donda" album on July 22 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The event was publicized in a Beats Studio Buds ad that aired during the NBA finals.

The initial listening party ended up breaking Apple Music livestreaming records with 3.3 million viewers tuning in. Even more Apple Music listeners participated in the second streaming event, which was held in Atlanta on August 5.

So far, West has been playing dramatically different versions of the album at each event, featuring new songs and new mixes.

West was initially expected to release the album after the August 5 Atlanta event, but that did not happen. There continues to be no release date for "Donda."

This guy does not respect his fans. Selling $100 tshirts and $50 chicken tenders to people in a stadium who want music from him, then he comes in playing music too loud for anyone to make anything out, and then when he said he was going to release his album, he just… doesn’t.

I used to like his music, but now I just can’t separate the music from the artist, so it’s all trash to me now.

Let's be positive here. He's a nice lad who has a lot of money :D

He's also OCD and few other things, but he seems fairly harmless.

I mean, with the hyper OCD thing, disssapoiting a fan base is fairly understandable.

I get some people don't like his music but people still choose to be salty.

Like if you dont like his music, move along.
I don't comment on any article that has to do with a person/artist/subject that I dislike (unless maybe if the article is bashing them). The people in these comments reply to EVERY Kanye article without fail lmao it's sad. I just move right along.

Anyway... This is going to come out in September at this point.

Presidential candidate and artist. Respect.

No - but seriously, who's writing music for this guy? And why is Apple still hitching their wagon to someone like Kanye?
