Kanye West‘s Donda album has finally arrived but not without a host of controversies and allegations.
After a delay of more than 13 months, fans of the 44-year-old rapper were happy to learn that his much-anticipated 10th studio album, Donda, had finally dropped on Sunday morning, August 29.
However, one person that’s none too thrilled after getting a first listen was singer Chris Brown, who was seemingly cut from the album.
The 32-year-old singer believed he would be featured in a verse of the song New Again, which was listed as track 18 of the 27 song album, as Ye later revealed the project was released ‘without my approval.’

Just hours after Donda was available on streaming platforms, Brown seemingly blasted West, writing, ‘Kanye a whole h*e,’ in a message posted on his Instagram Stories.
Apparently, feeling no regret with his initial post, the Say Goodbye star followed up with the message: ‘Nah he tweakin.’
While Brown didn’t go into detail about his collaboration on New Again, The Shade Room is reporting that a source close to the situation revealed he was ‘a little heated about the verse being removed’ from the song.

According to the lyrics posted on Genius, West is listed as the vocalist in the intro, verse one and pre-chorus.
Brown and West are credited with both being the performers for the chorus.
‘Thank you, thank you, thank you for your mercy, make me new – Make me new again, make me new again – Make me new again, make me new again,’ it reads in the chorus, which like most choruses is beefed up with added sining tracks.
‘I repent for everything that I’ma do again – Make me new again, make me new again – Make me new again.’
Brown and West had previously collaborated together on two songs over the years.
Collaborators: Brown and West had previously collaborated on the song Down, which was featured on Brown’s second studio album Exclusive (2007), and Waves that was released on West’s acclaimed seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo (2016)
Ye co-wrote and performed on the tune Down, which was featured on Brown’s second studio album Exclusive (2007).
Brown and Kid Cudi were featured on West’s song Waves that was released on his acclaimed seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo (2016).
Rapper Soulja Boy is also speaking out with claims that he too had a verse in a song that wasn’t included in the final version.
‘Idk how to feel, Kanye sent me that song “remote control” and I don’t hear my verse on it. Hmm f**k that n****a,’ Soulja (born DeAndre Cortez Way), 31, tweeted.
‘This n****a Kanye smh. Tell homie don’t hit my phone anymore.’
Allegation: West called out Universal, claiming Donda was released ‘without my approval’
Not long after Donda, named after West’s late mother – Donda West, dropped, West took to his Instagram page and called out his record company.
‘Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked Jail 2 from being on the album,’ he wrote.
Representatives with Universal reportedly told Variety that the allegations are ‘preposterous.’
