Kanye West reportedly held an exclusive “DONDA 2” Listening Party at Nobu in L.A. on Monday night (Feb. 7).
Pictures began emerging on Tuesday of the event attended by a whole host of Ye’s celebrity pals, including one billed as a Kim-Kardashian lookalike.
Did Kanye Just Confirm The Event?
Now, it appears Kanye West has confirmed there was indeed a DONDA 2 event. Ye posted two images on his official Instagram account with the caption, “DONDA2 2 22 22.”
The first photo was so widely circulated that pretty much everyone pictured began trending on Twitter at one time or another on Tuesday. It features a fully masked Kanye West posing alongside Drake, Travis Scott, Baby Keem, and Swedish rapper Yung Lean.
Furthermore, the second image was a report from Complex, which Kanye West appeared to co-sign.
Will “Donda 2” Arrive On Time?
However, Rumors began swirling that Kanye was teasing his collaborators from his upcoming album.
Fans on social media also took the event and Kanye’s so-called confirmation as a sign that this project could arrive on time, unlike the original much-delayed Donda album. If the project does arrive on schedule, Ye will go head-to-head with his fellow Chicagoan, Lil Durk. Durkio is also due to drop his album, “7220,” on the same day.
However, others focused on the presence of a woman who is said to bear a striking resemblance to Kim Kardashian. Reports noted model Chaney Jones was allegedly in attendance while Julia Fox, girlfriend of Kanye West, was not.
Meanwhile, Kanye West made a cameo in the video for “Diet Coke,“Pusha T’s new song. He also produced the track alongside 88-Keys. Watch the video below.
