Kanye West Releases 'DONDA 2' to Stem Players
Dubbed “V2.22.22 Miami” tracks from the Kanye West DONDA 2 listening event in Miami on Tuesday have officially released to stem players.
Unfinished tracks from new Kanye West album DONDA 2 are now on stem players. The release follows his Miami DONDA Experience Performancelistening event at LoanDepot Park on Tuesday, where guests Fivio Foreign, Alicia Keys, DaBaby, Playboi Carti, Pusha T and Jack Harlow made cameos.
Executive-produced by Future, DONDA 2 features Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Baby Keem, Migos, Soulja Boy, the late XXXTentacion and more. Some songs, including "Mr. Miyagi" which features Playboi Carti have not been shared to stem players yet, but the rough version of "V2.22.22 Miami" includes 16 tracks.
Fans can still purchase the $200 stem player from its website. To get Ye's new music, listeners can plug the stem player into their computer, visit the device's website and sync new songs.
Earlier this month, Ye revealed on Instagram that he turned down a $100M deal with Apple Music for DONDA 2 to be heard on the handheld device.
"Donda 2 will only be available on my own platform, the Stem Player,” Ye wrote. “Not on Apple Amazon Spotify or YouTube. Today artists get just 12% of the money the industry makes. It’s time to free music from this oppressive system. It’s time to take control and build our own.”
Despite demanding an apology from co-headliner Billie Eilish, Ye is still slated to perform at Coachella in April, where he reportedly plans on bringing Travis Scott.
