Last week, Ty – real name is Tyrone William Griffin Jr. – announced that the event was happening tomorrow (November 3) on his Instagram but sources have now told Billboard that it will not be held nor will they release the album on the night.
This is the second time that a release date for the record has been pushed back. It was originally set to drop on October 13, but that date also fell through.
Speculation about a collaborative album arose when West reportedly held an intimate listening party at a recording studio in Italy to debut his new album on October 1.
A new album would mark Ye’s first release since his spate of controversial comments last year that were criticised as anti-Semitic. Back in October 2022, it emerged that West is no longer signed to record label Def Jam.
West also reportedly filed several trademark applications for the use of ‘Yews’ last month.
In September, ‘Jesus Is King 2’ – West’s follow-up to his 2019 gospel album – was leaked online. Earlier in the month, it was revealed that the rapper was suing an unknown Instagram user over music leaks.
The post Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s “multi-stadium listening event” cancelled, says report appeared first on NME.
