Kanye West to release new album Donda this week, shares No Child Left Behind

The rapper and producer's tenth studio album is named after his late mother.

Kanye West will release his new album Donda this Friday (July 23), the rapper and producer's record label has confirmed. 

A new Kanye song titled No Child Left Behind premiered last night (July 20) on an advert for Beats starring Sha’Carri Richardson, America’s fastest woman.

Def Jam then announced on Twitter that Kanye's tenth studio album will be out this Friday, following a listening event at Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium on Thursday which will be livestreamed via Apple.

Donda is named after Kanye's late mother, Donda West, who died in November 2007. 

Kanye first teased news of the album last summer, sharing a track listing of song titles including Praise God, God's Country, and Off The Grid, but it was never released. 

Donda is Kanye's first new music to be released since 2019's Jesus Is King, which peaked at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart. View Kanye's Official Chart history here, which includes three Number 1 singles and two chart-topping albums.
