Kanye West has finally released his new album, Donda, after an eternity of waiting and three parties to listen to the album. It came out on August 29, 2021, and was named after his mother, Donda West. So far, fans on Twitter seem to like it.
One Question That Has Arisen About The Album Is Why It Was Released Without A Cover Picture. While Album Covers Are Often An Important Part Of An Artist’s Visual Brand, “Donda” Was Released With No Visual Representation. In This Article, We see a black square instead of the album art. Why doesn’t Donda have a cover, though? What do we know?
Why Does Donda Music Album Have No Cover Picture?
Donda is Kanye’s 10th album, so fans might have thought things would go more smoothly. The release date kept getting pushed back, and now there needs to be album art. The rapper hasn’t said why a black square was chosen for the release, but it may not have been that way from the start. When he first put some expensive art online, people started talking about what it might be.
Earlier in 2021, Kanye posted a picture of The Incomplete Truth, a sculpture by Damien Hirst that was made in the early 2000s. In work, a white dove is in a solution of formaldehyde.
A Reddit post:
When Kanye posted this, fans wondered how the artwork would help show what the album was about. People online talked about themes like “Destroying Something You’re Trying to Preserve,” even though Kanye never said that The Incomplete Truth was meant to be album art (A Quote From Hirst Regarding His “Natural History” Art Series).

The fact that Kanye’s marriage to Kim Kardashian has been rocky in the past few years, to say the least, could make that theme very telling. But now there are rumors that the two are trying to improve their relationship. “Love Unconditionally” is the name of a song from a listening party that is not on the version of Donda that is out in the world. It’s said to be about the rapper’s family dying.
The fact that Kanye bought the Hirst sculpture for £1 million ($1,375,640) in August 2021 doesn’t help according to The Sun.
Is Kanye West’s “Donda” Released Without His Permission?
Donda was first scheduled to come out in July 2020. Then it was moved to July 23, 2021, August 6, August 15, and even later that month. Even though we finally have the music, if Kanye had his way, we would still be waiting. Just a few hours after the album came out, he posted on Instagram that his music had been put out without permission.
“Universal put out my album without my permission, and they didn’t let “Jail 2″ be on it,” the post says. Neither Def Jam nor Universal Music Group, which owns the record label, have responded to the center.
When Kanye says “Jail 2,” he talks about the song “Jail Pt. 2” on Donda. As soon as the album came out, “Jail” and most other songs were available to stream. But the song’s second part was added to the list after the fact. But this could have also led to the need for cover art on the album.
