After sifting the censored CDQ copy of
Donda On streaming services, check out our song ratings for LP below.
26. “Tell the Vision” (with Pop Smoke).
A different version of “Tell the Vision” originally appeared on Pop Smoke after his death
Faith album. Here, Pusha T’s hair has been cut and Pop’s vocals altered with Kanye adjusting the tempo. Yeezy pays homage to Pop, who is more of a terminator or bridge than a legitimate track from a fallen Brooklyn drill soldier.
25. “No Child Left Behind” (feat. Immediate)
This is the closest fitting album. Anyone who watched the broadcast or was on social media during the second listening party in Atlanta will have to connect the movie “No Child Left Behind” with the scene of Kanye – or Kanye stunt double – soaring into the sky on a light beam by opening the roof of a Mercedes-Benz stadium .
24. “God Breathe” (feat. Immediate)
One of the most biblically inclined records
Donda. “GBOT” is a deep and unforgettable long-term cut of the project as it gets swallowed up by other illustrious records and mega stars lending their talents to the LP. Although it’s funny to hear Kanye compare God being the father to an episode of More.
23. “24” (Feat. Vory)
By this point in the album,
Donda It moves to a quieter ending. Time and time again, Kanye tells listeners that everything will be fine and he will continue to overcome the obstacles life has thrown his way, whether it be the loss of his mother, relationship issues with Kim Kardashian, or something else. While he was singing on the song “Reborn,” he kept moving forward.
22. “Ok Ok, Pt. 2” (with Fivio Foreign, Rooga & Shinseea)
In the sequel to the second installment, Kanye hires his first collaborator on the record with rising dance star Shinseea. But it’s the original that won’t top it, thanks to the standout feature from Lil Yachty.
21. “Jonah” (feat. Forrey and Lil’ Dork)
After he missed the private plane to put his music on
Donda In July, Lil Durk made up for it in a major way by making the final cut for his first collaboration with the Chicago legend on “Jonah.” Crone Vory appears on another track where Kanye essentially transforms the Houston artist’s voice into another instrument to spread throughout the project. It’s probably no coincidence that you heard Kanye decry “smoking on a packet versus” at the same time that your role said he would stop naming the dead in his music.
Kanye looks inward and mingles in an inspirational speech from the late Donda West, as Kanye reflects on his parents’ relationship and his origin story with the help of the Sunday Service choir. Erasing help from GOOD Music head Pusha T lowers the track ceiling.
19. “Remote Control” (feat. Young Thug)
Another unexpected treat for listeners is Young Thug’s reunion with Kanye on a recording. Thugger steals the show, navigates smooth productions without worrying the world, and flaunts his fortunes while Yeezy mocks how far the world’s future is with remote controls and skateboards. However, ‘Far’ is somewhat disappointing, as it wouldn’t be one of the
18. “New Again” (feat. Chris Brown)
Kanye brings listeners on an uptempo psychedelic journey during “New Again”. With everything Yeezy and Chris Brown have been through, they know a thing or two about getting rid of their skin and feeling rejuvenated again. The home-influenced movie “New Again” would have been a hidden gem
Donda You were sure to get your head wobble if Yeezy was left alone hearing fans in Atlanta with the help of Ty Dolla $ign.
17. “Heaven and Hell”
Starting with Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny From The Block” Sample, “Heaven and Hell” Rarely Cut Kanye Solo
Donda. Yeezy rides massive production providing one of the most exhilarating drops soon after the one minute mark. If only Kanye channeled the “No More Partying in L.A.” flow, this could easily be a classic cut.
16. “Junya, Pt. 2” (feat. Playboi Carti and Ty Dolla $ign)
This is a breath of fresh air with Ty Dolla $ign tapping into his rap bag with ease. While Ty, unfortunately, was cut short for “New Again,” he’s getting his shine here.
15. “Jesus Lord, Part 2” (feat. Guy Electronica & Lux)
The last track of what would have been a double disc effort from Yeezy. This version played at its second hearing in Atlanta as The LOX continued its hot streak out of
Dominates the victory of Virgos More from Dipset. Kanye couldn’t quite cut them off, it wouldn’t be right.
14. “Keep My Soul Alive” (feat. Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, KayCyy)
Griselda and Kanye West are an unlikely combination, but it worked again. Keep My Spirit Alive is linked together by the wonderful singing of YZY Sound artist KayCyy. The track likely stems from when Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, and Benny The Butcher visited Kanye’s Wyoming farm in 2020.
13. “Jesus Lord” (feat. Jay Electronica)
One of the strongest tracks on the entire album. Kanye talks about the pain he went through with his divorce and the trauma of losing his mother that never heals. Bars like “Suicidal thoughts made you wonder what’s new” or “If I die tonight, shall I see her in the afterlife” are sure to pierce any listener’s soul. And that was just one part, as rap super hero Jay Electronica delivers boosts in the second half of the nine-minute marathon. The cut culminated in a letter from Larry Hoover Jr., who thanked Kanye for trying to help his imprisoned father and demanded his release.
12. “Jail” (with Jay-Z & Francis and the Lights)
“This could be the return of the throne,” Jay-Z Rap. The most anticipated reunion happens in all of hip-hop today
Donda Kanye also reconnects with older brother Huff. “Hova and Yeezus, like Moses and Jesus,” Jay continues to add more hype to his former Roc-A-Fella teammates. While Watching the throne It remains the gold standard, there may be more in store with the transformation of social media personality Donda Insider Justin LaBowie has claimed that a project for a sequel of Ye and Jay is on track for later in 2021.
11. “Lord, I need you”
One of the tracks with strong religious themes with Kanye being a man of God. The Smoother Track features co-production from Wheezy and serves as an angelic transition to the final chapter of
Donda. It wouldn’t be anyone’s favourite, but it’s also not anyone’s favourite.
10. “Moon” (with Don Tolliver and Kid Cody)
After he said publicly that he wasn’t present in the original version of
DondaKanye gave his best friend Kid Cody a call to have him fly to Atlanta and contribute to multiple tracks on the final album. Cudder and Cactus Jack’s Don Toliver chime in as “Moon” holding the middle part of the Donda.
9. “Junya” (with Playboi Carti)
An amazing extension of three songs
Donda Crowned as “Junia”. Yeezy teams up with one of the new school leaders at Playboi Carti and doesn’t flinch. Kanye gives Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee a shout out to win the championship and smokes for anyone (maybe Drake or Nas) who wanted to conquer the day of his release. The rapper sings: “Go away, let me go.”
8. “Prison Part 2” (with Dababi)
The Chicago-born millionaire sent shock waves through the industry when
Joined by Dababy and Marilyn Manson In the new version of the balcony of his childhood home in Soldier Field for the third audience Donda listening party. He replaces Baby and Jay-Z, which is usually an impossible task, but gives an A+ effort with a gritty, crowd-speaking verse he’s received in recent weeks. Helping a native Charlotte is one of the first guest appearances on the album, and it’s over and he’d never have sung if it wasn’t for Kanye.
7. “Come to life”
Kanye warms up his vocal cords and uses his singing voice while introspection with an inward look. Grief begins when Yeezy expresses regret with potential love notes for his wife Kim Kardashian West and fades into the distance with an inspirational piano solo to let everyone know he’s finally free.
6. “Thank God” (with Travis Scott and Baby Kim)
Kanye reunites with Travis Scott for the first time since “Wash Us in the Blood” of the space track. Baby Kim, who’s been a mainstay in Atlanta for the past two weeks, tells us he’s still out of the pandemic cursed because of the ill-fated organ-laden production.
5. “Ok Ok” (with Lil Yachty & Rooga)
Donda Outstanding path. The Chicago-born magnate looks inward and claims he’s not feeling well at the moment. Yeezy checks out his rap game admitting he’s been inspired again and gets to know those who try to copy his scheme all the time while calling on artists to follow trends and not stand out.
Lil Yachty provides a welcome feature, making it a complete moment, as he kicked off Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show during
Pablo’s lifeMadison Square Garden listening party in 2016 when he was not yet known to be into rap. Lil Boat pays tribute to the late Juice WRLD during the stifled ’80s and hands the wand to Rooga of Chicago, aimed at those who don’t want to see him win.
4. “Be true to what I say”
Lauryn Hill and her clutch come labeled with the “Doo Wop” sample removed. In fact, Kanye raised “Believe What I Say” in 2020 while enjoying a boat trip. The soulful cut makes a welcome addition to
Donda Fold and it might be a slight hit on Drake, who used a similar sample of “Doo Wop” on his 2014 “Draft Day.”
3. “Pure Souls” (feat. Roddy Ricch & Shensea)
Another track, another five-star collaboration. Kanye hooks up with one of Roddy Ricch’s top Compton stars and rookie dance singer Shinseea for “Pure Souls”. While production has been shaky on Kanye’s recent projects, his songwriting is where he stumbled for the latter part of his career. “Pure Souls” features some high-quality writing from Yeezy as he battles friendly enemy Drake by weaving “Mob Ties” and “God’s Plan” into his songs, which is sure to get God’s attention.
2. “Hurricane” (Lil Baby and The Weeknd work)
A fan favorite off the shelf
yandy Era in 2018. “Hurricane” has gone through a series of developments and reached nearly its final form at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta when Kanye showed off the track polished with The Weeknd’s adorable chorus rather than himself, which takes nearly a three-year-old song to a level. Another on the Richter scale.
1. “Off the Grid” (with Playboi Carti and Fvio Foreign)
Who would have thought that there would be a collaboration between Kanye West, Playboi Carti, and Fivio Foreign in 2021, he’s likely to play the lottery as well. Fivio helps make it one of the
Dondabest efforts. He pours his soul into this verse and leaves no mold missing.
It’s almost as if he knew just how important this verse was in propelling him into the mainstream in rap, something Kanye’s feature was strong enough to do at one point. As one of the torchbearers of the Brooklyn pit scene after Pop Smoke’s death, Fivio Foreign didn’t take this moment for granted and featured in the final product.
The revitalized Kanye taps on another frequency and ends up adding the best rap verse since then
Pablo’s life To take the track to a fan-favorite level.
