Donda 2 was announced by Kanye West on his Instagram. As for the new album, it will be executive produced by Future and released on February 22. A recent live performance by Future and Kanye West took place at Rolling Loud, California. The rappers collaborated in 2014 on the Honest song “I Won.”
Def Jam Recordings executive vice president and former head of A&R Steven Victor considered developing ‘Donda 2’. Victor was formerly the chief operating officer of G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam Recording’s executive vice president and head of A&R. “Donda 2” is Ye’s next masterpiece, according to Victor.
‘Donda 2’ will be the sequel to West’s last album, which was released in August. Of late, West has been busy: He co-headlined the Amazon-sponsored Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert with Drake, put out a song with the Game, and was announced as a Coachella headliner. Plus, the first part of the Jeen-Yuhs documentary about his life premiered, and he’s been a mainstay in the tabloids due to his new relationship with actress Julia Fox.
