Kanye West Confirms Release of New Album Donda in Beats By Dre Commercial
Kanye West confirmed the impending release of his new album, Donda, in a Beats by Dre commercial aired during Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The album, Kanye’s 10th solo album to date, will arrive this Friday, July 23rd.
The accompanying ad features American track and field sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who recently became infamous after she was banned from Olympic competition after testing positive for marijuana use. While it’s great to see Richardson getting paid after such a ridiculously outdated rebuff, the exciting part of the commercial is obviously the new Kanye music that soundtracks it.
The tease comes days after Kanye held a surprise listening party in Las Vegas over the weekend. Another listening event is set for Thursday in Atlanta. Although those in attendance will get to hear more of the LP, we all got a taste thanks to the NBA. Check it out below.
