Kanye might be making a comeback sooner than later.

On Sunday, famed photographer, Nigel D. Presents, issued a play-by-play of the invite-only listening party to Kanye’s new album on a thread posted to Twitter.

“So they took phones of course. Was about 10 feet from Kanye while Usher sat across from me,” Nigel began his series of tweets. “Came out with a full mask and gloves. Took off one glove to control the laptop and play music. Before the show started they played 2 commercials that will come on during the NBA finals featuring Sha’Carri Richardson. So for the first song they had 4 young prodigies play pianos in the center. Featured some audio from his mother I believe.”

After, the photog spoke on some of the features that the G.O.O.D music founder will be having on the album including rappers Pusha T and Lil Baby.

Nigel continued: “Kanye then played a track with him and Pusha T rapping back and forth. Fireeeeee. Then he had a track with Lil Baby and I was ready to party. The music is still centered on God but there is a variety in sounds. Some slow, some trap, etc. Some songs could be played in a church, some in a club. So Kanye had a long a–playlist on his laptop he was playing from. So I wonder what songs will really be making the final version.”

From the description of Nigel’s tweets, it seems as if the album will have a lot of versatility. The rumored album is said to be titled Donda after West’s mother, who passed in 2007. As for the release date, there is no public comment from the rapper or his team as of yet but rumor has it that it will be released sometime this week.
