After weeks of delay, Kanye West has finally released his highly anticipated album “Donda”.

West released his 10th studio album on the streaming services Sunday morning, according to an announcement from his label, Def Jam Records. The album, which experienced a myriad of delays as the artist perfected it, can now be streamed on platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and more.

Named after the late Grammy-winner’s mother, Donda West, the album was originally slated for release shortly after a listening event he hosted at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. However, West was not happy with how “Donda” was received at the time, later sharing an image of a room he allegedly stayed in at the stadium as he pushed back the release date. He organized a second listening party in August at the same location but still hasn’t released the album. However, after a third listen even at Soldier Field in Chicago on Thursday, he finally deemed the album ready for the public.

People reports that the album contains 27 songs in total, including tracks like “Hurricane”, “Praise God”, “Moon” and “New Again”. Those who want to listen to it from start to finish have to block out about 108 minutes and 59 seconds.

Fans who rushed to listen to the album early on Sunday were probably disappointed to see that a track, “Jail pt. 2” was listed as a track but was not available to listen to. According to Variety, the track initially credited controversial rapper DaBaby with his real name, Jonathan Kirk, which may have led to legal and copyright issues that needed to be addressed. Luckily for Kanye fans, the track is now available to stream, which officially means “Donda” has been released.
