After causing a spectacle at two different events in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz stadium, Kanye West is taking the show on the road to Chicago.
The rapper announced on Wednesday, August 18, he would be holding a third listening event for his highly-anticipated album Donda at Soldier Field on August 26.
Although fans were excited at the chance to see the “Heartless” rapper in action, many demanded that he finally release the album he’s been talking about all summer.
“CAN YOU JUST DROP PLSSSSSS,” a fan emphatically wrote on his Instagram announcement for the listening event, while another wrote in all caps: “BRO JUST DROP THE ALBUM. IT'S NOT THAT HARD.”
“Nobody show up we gonna teach him a lesson fr,” an angry fan commented, while a fourth said, “Stop kanye please stop doing this to me.”
Another one of his over 7.1 million followers dropped a conspiracy theory that the 44-year-old Gap collaborator is just messing with everyone and won’t physically drop a whole album. “Y’all don’t get it, he isn’t dropping a physical album. No streams, no radio, none of that. You hear the album with him and he takes the listening party on tour,” they explained.
The “Runaway” crooner vowed to be holed up inside Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz stadium until his album was complete, but it appears he's changed his mind. The controversial singer moved into the venue after being inspired by the crowd after his first listening on July 23.
Donda will be West's tenth studio album and named after his late mother, who tragically died in 2007.
The “Good Morning” rappers estranged ex-wife, Kim Kardashian and their children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, were in attendance at the first listening event in Atlanta, but it is unclear if they will make the trip to Chicago.
