Theophilus London has given an update on the whereabouts of Kanye West's Donda album, saying he may have been working through the night as he still had "verses to finish" and "new features" following the Atlanta listening party.
Fans were expecting to wake up to Kanye West's highly-anticipated new album Donda today (23 July) following last night's listening party in Atlanta, but it's still nowhere to be found.
While many believed he would be pushing back the release date like he has done previously (Donda was originally due for release on 24 July 2020), Theophilus London has provided an update, revealing that Ye and producer Mike Dean have likely pulled an "all nighter" to finish it.
Theophilus London wrote in an Instagram comment, "Mike Dean and co. hitting an all nighter u could bet that! Kanye definitely inspired by tn [tonight] and still has verses to finish and a bunch of new features today just based off the roll out hype."
He added, "Rick Rubin lending his ear also! COULD B[E] READY BY AM GUYS ... like TLOP [The Life of Pablo]. And keep in mind he's the only artist who can turn in his album to DSP's 1 hour before it's released. When the streaming service companies want it as bad as we do ... that's power!"
