Kanye West Donda listen LIVE – Stem Player launched to ship with new album before Ye's Chicago listening party TONIGHT

KANYE West has released a new "Donda stem player" ahead of his listening party for his new album this week ahead of its much-anticipated release.

The player, which costs $200, allows listeners to easily loop tracks, speed or slow down the pace of a recording, and isolate different instruments.

On August 24, 2021, West officially filed legal documents in Los Angeles to change his name which he has previously revealed is connected to his religious views.

West first changed his name to Ye back in 2018, however, he did not file for it to be legal.

Kanye has been in the throes of planning his third listening event, after hosting the first two at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The legendary record producer formerly promised fans he would drop Donda on August 6.

However, after the first and second live stream events ended, the album was still not released.

    WHY DOES KANYE WANT TO BE NAMED YE?

    West has previously stated that Ye, is in connection to his religious views.

    "I believe 'ye' is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means 'you,'" West said earlier that year in an interview with Big Boy ahead of his 8th studio album.

    "So I'm you, I'm us, it's us. It went from Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye – just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything. The album is more of a reflection of who we are."
