Kanye West publishes by surprise his new album, Donda: 27 songs and 108 minutes

It had to be on Sunday. Kanye West, the rapper obsessed with the idea of God, chose a Sunday day to launch his new album, Donda, a work of 27 songs and constant references to Jesus who has begun to sound in streaming services since the dawn of the United States . The waiting of the album, intended incially for July 22, last year, has been long and confused. They have had to pass several evidence in public for the album to see light.

Donda, like everything that West touches, comes wrapped in a crown of spines and roses, a mixture of expectation, morbid and controversy. The last shooting session of him, last Thursday in Chicago, called by West Listening Party, did not stop anyone indifferent. In addition to building in the middle of the Soldier Field stadium a replica of the home in which his childhood passed, with a great cross crowning the house, the singer shared stage with Marilyn Manson and Dababy, two colleagues fallen in disgrace this year: one by sexual assault and the other for his homophobic statements.

Manson, whom his label has already left in La Cuntoa and who is being investigated by the Los Angeles police, was charged by actress Evan Rachel Wood of sexually abusing her for years.

Dababy, on the other hand, won his moment of Infmia during a music festival in Miami, the Rolling Loud, when he asked to connect the light of his cell phones all who were not making coullations in the parking or those who did not have AIDS or «Any of those sexually transmitted diseases that kill you in two or three weeks». The comment has cost him, at the moment, that he expels him from a few festivals.

Both shared a stage with a West dress in black and covered with foot toe - a mesh covered the face - and the two have collaborated on the album. "Marilyn Manson's voice appears in Donda and he will continue doing it," a spokesman for the singer, cited by People magazine.

Nor has it been imported that at its tenth disk of study, although the reaction in social networks has been furious and immediate, in a mixture of insults and indignation. To date it has gone more than good, at least in terms of sales. The nine previous albums have achieved at least the gold disk label in the United States.

The album itself maintains an undoubted parallelism with its Sunday actions of recent years, a kind of religious tour all over the country in which it has not stopped kneading worshipers from its creed. It is also a tribute to her mother, who gives name to the album. The first topic is a dizzy repetition of her name for almost a minute, without any background music.

Donda lasts 108 minutes and has collaborations to give and take. There are Jay-Z contributions, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Baby Keem, Jay Electronica, Young Thug, Pusha T, Pop Smoke, The Lox or Kid Cudi, among others, scattered on 27 issues that have sounded at their previous concerts of the Vegas, Atlanta and Chicago, with some variations with respect to those appointments.

Jesus Lord, almost nine minutes, is one of the most striking issues of the album. 88-Keys, BoogzDabeast and Jeff Bhasker are part of a production where West says it is difficult to be "an angel surrounded by so many demons", after a difficult year in the personal aspect for the singer. Material There is plenty to deliver even more into the figure of one of the great rap, beloved and detested equally.
