Published Jul 21, 2020Has Kanye West finally given up his futile presidential run? Following an erratic Twitter rant (which itself followed a bizarre campaign speech), the rapper has now indicated that he plans to focus on music and will release an album called DONDA this week.
Last night (July 20), Kanye unloaded on his Twitter account, tweeting, "Ima focus on the music now," and adding, "DONDA coming this Friday." He also shared the current album tracklist — though, given the rapper's penchant for last-minute changes, this might not be final.
Those tweets are a couple of the only ones that remain of a mostly-deleted Twitter spree in which Kanye alleged that his family members were attempting to send him to a mental hospital, comparing his situation with the Kardashians to Get Out. This follows reports that his family are concerned for his well-being as he experiences an alleged bipolar episode.
In since-deleted tweets, he wrote, "Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor," and, "Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday."
See DONDA's tracklist below. The album features recent single "DONDA" but does not appear to feature "Wash Us in the Blood." DONDA — which is the name of Kanye's late mother, as well as his creative company — has apparently replaced the previous title of God's Country.
