Donda, named after West's late mom, who died at age 58 in 2007, features several new songs, including collaborations with Jay Z, Pop Smoke, Travis Scott, Pusha T, Baby Keem, Lil Baby and other artists.

Jay Z's former music streaming service Tidal shared a clip of "Throne."

West's estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and their four children, daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2, attended the listening party. Kardashian filed for divorce in February after seven years of marriage.

Other guests included Shaquille O'Neal, CeeLo Green, Big Boi and Jadakiss.

West will release Donda on Friday. The album is his first since Jesus is King, released in October 2019.
