Kanye Wests DONDA has yet to be released, but hes holding fans over with new music in the meantime.
The song Hurricane featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby has started to appear on streaming services in international markets including Japan and Russia, while a U.S. release could be imminent. The 4-minute-long track is listed as track No. 2 in the 24-song DONDA tracklist that appears on the iTunes Store, which lists an Aug. 15 release date for the album.

Kanyes manager, Bu Thiam, also seemed to hint that Hurricane would drop before the album. Still locked in, he wrote in an Instagram Story that has since been deleted. Never rush the process.

Additionally, Spotifys RapCaviar account alluded to Hurricane on Twitter, tagging Kanye, The Weeknd, and Lil Baby alongside the clock and eyeball emojis.
Kanye debuted Hurricane during his live-streamed listening event from Atlantas Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday night, along with collaborations with JAY-Z, Young Thug, Pusha T, Playboi Carti, Lil Durk, and more.
Hurricane has been around for at least three years and has gone through several changes. According to HipHop-N-More, the song was originally titled 80 Degrees and was first previewed back in 2018 when Kanye was working on his scrapped Yandhi album.
