Kanye West has confirmed that a sequel to his 2021 album is in the works. Moneybagg Yo revealed the news by sharing a text from Ye where he spoke about collaborating with him on DONDA 2.
“I got to lock in with you on Donda 2,” Ye wrote in the text conversation, while also seemingly discussing a separate collaboration.

This is the first time Ye has acknowledged DONDA 2. G.O.O.D. Music COO Steven Victor previously announced that DONDA 2 was happening. “Ye has started working on his new masterpiece DONDA 2,” he told Complex.
Ye was recently photographed in the studio with Moneybagg, The Game, and Antonio Brown. He also reunited with Hit-Boy during a studio session.

DONDA was finally released to streaming services in late August after a series of delays. It topped the Billboard 200, with appearances from JAY-Z, Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Roddy Ricch, and more.
Ye also has plans to meet with Russian leader Vladimir Putin and wants to start doing Sunday Service in Russia beginning this spring or summer.
