Kanye West held his third listening event for his forthcoming album Donda on Thursday, and brought out some unexpected surprise guests.
During the event, this time held at Soldier Field in West’s hometown of Chicago, the artist appeared on the front porch of a recreation of his childhood home, alongside two children who appeared to be his kids North and Saint, whom he shares with estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
The first song West played during the livestreamed event was the track “Jail,” which fans had excitedly embraced during the previous two listening parties as it included a verse recorded by JAY-Z.
This time around, however, the song instead featured a verse by DaBaby — who also joined West on the porch of the reconstructed home, alongside Marilyn Manson.
The appearance by the artists comes shortly after DaBaby faced a wave of backlash for making shocking, anti-LGBTQ remarks about people with HIV/AIDS during the Rolling Loud festival in July. He later apologized in several different statements, and subsequently deleted his own apologies.
Manson, meanwhile, is currently facing multiple lawsuits filed by numerous women accusing him of sexual assault, rape and sexual misconduct. Manson has denied all claims leveled against him.
Many fans watching the event took to social media after the track played, and voiced their strong opinions about swapping out JAY-Z’s verse with DaBaby’s.
