If current plans hold, a Donda sequel will be making its way out into the world in just two short weeks, making the latest whisperings surrounding the album from the artist formerly known as Kanye West all the more intriguing for fans.
Tuesday morning, both TMZ and Page Six shared reports claiming that a Donda 2 listening party took place last night. Per the latter, this alleged event—which is said to have counted Travis Scott (confirmed this week to have recently welcomed a second child with Kylie Jenner) among its attendees—went down at the oft-referenced Nobu in Malibu.
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner was also spotted arriving at Nobu on Monday evening, with Offset and French Montana said to have stopped by as well. After the Nobu-based festivities, several attendees reportedly extended the evening by dropping in on a Stas Karanikolaou-hosted party at Nice Guy in West Hollywood. And that’s where additional names, including Drake, get brought into the reports. It’s unclear, however, whether the Nice Guy visit marked a true extension of the alleged listening party that began at Nobu.
Mentioned frequently amid Tuesday’s coverage is model Chaney Jones, who’s been billed as a Kim Kardashian “lookalike.” Amid Monday night’s proceedings, Jones—whose Instagram currently boasts more than 104,000 followers—donned a look that some have argued bears clear inspiration from a Kim K outfit circa 2021.
The latest updates on Donda 2 follow a public exchanging of words between Ye and Kim K, with Ye most recently posting and deleting a demand for an apology from the entire Kardashian family. Julia Fox, meanwhile, recently shut down Ye split rumors on Instagram.
