Kanye West has dropped another surprise for fans but, sadly, it’s not the Donda album which has been delayed yet again.
It was expected that the Grammy-winning rapper would release his 10th studio album last Friday after a string of agonising delays.
However, release day came and went and rumours began circulating that it would arrive on Monday.

Now in bittersweet news, Donda appears to have been given another release date on streaming platforms but fans will have to wait at least another week.
iTunes currently has Donda listed as a pre-release with the date set for August 13 aka this Friday. Interestingly, Apple Music has the release date pegged as August 15.
Reacting to the latest delay, one fan tweeted: ‘This gotta be the wildest Kanye rollout to date.’
Sharing their theory on how to force Kanye into dropping the album, another said: ‘Drake just needs to tweet a date or something and drop the cover on that date so Kanye can fold and gives us the album,’ in reference to the feud between the two rappers.

One fan was amused by the chaos and laughed: ‘Why is everyone acting surprised that Kanye isn’t accurate with his release dates lmao.’
Donda was originally set for release on July 23 and Kanye, 44, even hosted a listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia for fans to attend.
Following the first delay, the All Of The Lights rapper seemed determined to complete the album and even moved into the stadium to continue working on it. However, he failed to release it a second time despite throwing a second listening party at the venue for another 42,000 fans.
Donda, named after Kanye’s late mother Donda West, is expected to feature 24 tracks with collaborations featuring the likes of Jay Z, Pusha T, Playboi Carti and Travis Scott.
It’s also said to feature lyrics about his split from wife Kim Kardashian, who has supported the album release by attending the listening events with their four children; North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
