- Donda 2 is the rapper's 11th studio album and Ye held a listening event and live performance for it at LoanDepot Park in Miami, Florida
- The event was attended by celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Pusha T, the Migos, Marilyn Manson and Jack Harlow
Kanye West debuted his 11th studio album Donda 2 during his much-awaited event DONDA experience, held in Miami, Florida. Earlier this month Ye announced the event, which he dubbed the 2.22.22 performance.
Just like his event for Donda at the Soldier Stadium in Chicago six months ago, the rapper erected a replica of his childhood home engulfed in flames for the DONDA Experience.
NME reports that fans who tuned in for the event via Livestream were played a pulsating heartbeat for over 45 minutes. The publication further states that about 45 minutes of previously unreleased songs such as Flowers, Diet Coke by Pusha T and Easy featuring The Game were also played.

Stars who were featured on the album were also in attendance and some performed alongside the Praise God rapper. Another remarkable moment was when Ye played Kim Kardashian's monologue from Saturday Night Live where she referred to him as "the richest black man in America" and "the best rapper of all time". Many fans believe that this was a diss to both Kim and her boyfriend Pete Davidson.
According to Rap-Up.com, fans can access Ye's new body of work via his new streaming platform Stem Player. According to media reports, the streaming device is available to purchase for $200. It also allows users to customise any song and play four different elements—vocals, drums, bass, and music.
