Kanye West says his new album Donda 2 will be available exclusively on his platform, Stem Player.


The American rapper said that the album, which will be released later this month, will not appear on Apple, Amazon, Spotify or YouTube. Sharing a video on Instagram, which appeared to feature music playing on a Stem Player, West wrote: “Donda 2 will only be available on my platform, Stem Player. Not on Apple Amazon Spotify or YouTube. Today artists receive only 12% of the money the industry earns. It’s time to dump her and move on. It’s time to take control and build our own. Go to stemplayer.com now to order.”

Stem Player is a small device that allows users to share songs into “stems”, according to its website. The small disc-shaped device can control vocals, drums and bass, as well as isolate song tracks and add effects. Stem Players retail online for $ 200 (14 147), according to the site. West Donda’s latest album, a huge record of 27 songs, was released in August last year after long delays.

The 10th recording in the studio bears the name of his late mother, Donda West, and is a sequel to the 2019 album Jesus Is King. It features collaborations including those with Jay-Z, The Weeknd, Lil Baby, Playboi Carti, Kid Cudi and the late rapper Pop Smoke, as well as other material by artists Marilyn Manson and DaBaby.

His late mother named Donda West was an English professor at Chicago State University, who passed away in 2007 at the age of 58 after complications from cosmetic surgery.

Her death had a devastating impact on West, who like his latest album, also named a creative content company after her of the same name.

West’s latest announcement on social media comes after the release of the first part of a Netflix documentary about his life Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, which contained clips of his mother. The series was directed by director Clarence “Coodie” Simmons alongside Chike Ozah.
