Less than 24 hours before Kanye West is supposed to release DONDA, Apple Music has launched a 24/7 livestream where fans can watch Ye finish his 10th studio album live.
The stream went live at 1 a.m. ET on Thursday from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where Ye has taken up residency. His modest living quarters include a bed in the corner of the room and a clock on the wall counting down to tonight’s event start time.
His collaborators came in and out of the room, including Fivio Foreign, Chance the Rapper, Steve Lacy, and Mike Dean. At various points in the livestream, a masked Kanye lifted weights and did push-ups while wearing a DONDA bulletproof vest, Justin Laboy was seen getting a haircut, and Chance greeted Ye. Lil Yachty also showed up to the stadium. As of noon ET, Kanye was taking a nap.
DONDA was supposed to be released following Kanye’s livestream at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 23. The album is now slated to arrive Friday following a second Apple Music livestream, which will air starting at 9:30 p.m. ET tonight.
