After a successful Livestream on July 23, fans who could not attend the Apple event rushed to Spotify to catch hold of West's new studio album. However, shortly after queries on 'Why Kanye West's Donda is not on Spotify yet' began to emerge on social media after they realized that the album had still not dropped on the platform. So when does Donda drop on Spotify? Well, it is expected to drop very soon. While there has been no official confirmation from the music-streaming platform, a definitive release date will be provided shortly. 

Why Donda is not on Apple Music yet

While several artists have had glitches with the timely release of their songs on Spotify, this time, Apple Music is also lagging behind in releasing West's latest numbers. Even though Kanye West dropped his new album Donda at an event telecasted via Apple Music’s live stream, his fans were disappointed to see that the album had not been published on the music streaming platform. 

Apple Music listeners who managed to witness the listening event held at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium were in luck.

However, those who missed the stadium event, and the Livestream, have to continue waiting for some more time. For those wondering why Donda is not on Apple Music yet, there has been no confirmation on the delay.
