The return of Kanye West is expected this week with a new album entitled LP10 as a preview leaks.
Originally announced to be called “Donda” in ode to his deceased mother, it is now being reported the album will be entitled LP10. Some song snippets have leaked online. Despite cell phones being banned from the Las Vegas listening session, it appears as though somebody managed to capture audio and video from the event, sharing a snippet of a new song with Baby Keem, as well as a second preview, which sounds like classic Kanye.
The first snippet includes solely Baby Keem’s feature on the album, which sounds introspective and hard-hitting. The second preview includes Kanye West‘s lyrics about a father skipping a baby shower, his daughter turning one year old, and family trauma.
According to multiple attendees of the Las Vegas listening party, the upcoming album is one of Kanye’s most ambitious production-based projects to date. It has significant religious influence, but it’s allegedly more sonically realized than Jesus Is King. There are rumors that one of the new songs will premiere as part of a commercial airing during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, which will feature a cameo from Sha’Carri Richardson.
Listen to the leaked snippets below.
