West drew attention online after music from Donda premiered in a Beats By Dre commercial featuring Sha’Carri Richardson that aired during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on July 21, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

After the ad’s premiere, the Chicago artist had his first listening event for the album Thursday (July 22), a day before its originally scheduled release date, July 23. However, the album was pushed back to August 6 after Kanye moved into the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to finish the album. 

The album was named for his mother, Donda West, who died at the age of 58 in 2007, according to the report. Donda will be Kanye’s album following his gospel-inspired album Jesus is King.
