West premiered the album at a listening event at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on July 22.

The album featured the reunion of West with Jay-Z. The special guests also included Pop Smoke, Travis Scott, Pusha T, Baby Keem, Lil Baby, and many others.

The show also included a song that appeared in a new Beats ad. The event also prompted the City of Atlanta to proclaim July 22nd as Kanye West Day. This album follows West’s 2019 album Jesus Is King. His previous solo record Ye arrived in 2018 and was followed by Kids See Ghosts, which included a collaboration with Kid Cudi.

That same year, West produced records by Teyana Taylor, Nas, and Pusha T. There was another album in the planning which was supposed to be called Yandhi which took many setbacks and postponements, and Kanye sadly announced that he had to push back the production of the album which later never released.
