Kanye West’s Donda

-

As we close this issue, Kanye West’s latest album, Donda, is topping the charts and set to become one of the most successful albums of the year. However, it isn’t West’s best work – according to the artist himself. West asserted that the much anticipate­d album was released without his consent. Singers who collaborat­ed with him on various tracks were also unhappy about the tracklist. Donda has caused further controvers­ies, as singers DaBaby and Marilyn Manson – both currently the subjects of controvers­y – were invited to its listening party. Manson is currently accused of sexual abuse by several of his former partners, while DaBaby was blackliste­d by many festivals this Summer, after making homophobic comments on stage.
