Here’s What the Imagery at the ‘DONDA’ Chicago Listening Event Meant

Kanye West hosted a third listening event for his upcoming album DONDA at Chicago’s Soldier Field on Thursday evening, this time employing theatrical elements like a recreation of his childhood home, a motorcade of cars and Kim Kardashian in a wedding dress to visualize his new music.

The Chicago event began with a track tentatively titled “Jail,” which replaced a verse previously given by JAY-Z. Dozens of cars and hooded figures shrouded in black began circling West’s childhood home installation that was placed center stage.

The latest DONDA recording included a sample of Ms. Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” and featured new verses and multiple new songs. The event concluded with West exiting his childhood home engulfed in flames; a woman in a white bridal gown walked out and they met briefly for a tender moment.

A source involved in the event confirmed to our Correspondent in America that the woman in the wedding gown was Kardashian, (Read story here) with the moment shared between the estranged spouses reflecting healing love and moving on to the next stage.
