WASHINGTON: The Grammy winner is all set to release his first sequel album for recent hit ‘Donda’ on February 22, 2022.
The 44-year-old rapper confirmed the news on his Instagram handle by sharing a photo of his Chicago home on fire, the same home he rebuilt for one of his Donda listening parties in 2021.
“DONDA2 COMING 2 22 22 EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY FUTURE,” he captioned the post.
‘Donda 2,’ which marks West’s 11th album, is executive produced by Future.

Ahead of the release of ‘Donda 2,’ a documentary about the musician premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23, before it hits Netflix on February 16. The documentary will showcase West’s rise in music, from young producer and wannabe rapper to Grammy winner and global superstar.
The documentary also covers the 2007 death of West’s mother, the rapper’s mental health struggles and his failed presidential bid in 2020, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed.
