Singer’s second listening party explored
Kanye’s second listening party had up to 40,000 attendees.
Around 10:30 PM on Thursday, August 5, the lights at the Mercedes Benz stadium went down and Kanye walked on a bare platform that had a mattress on the ground with a grey comforter on it. A few pairs of shoes and Kanye’s famous spike-covered jacket were scattered around the mattress.
Fans swayed to the music as the titular track boomed. Kanye had his bondage hood mask with zippers over the eyes and mouth on. Songs like We gonna be okay, No Child Left Behind and He’s done miracles on me were played at the event.
Popular personalities like Quavo, Offset, Chance The Rapper, Kanye’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian and many more attended the show.
Despite the magnanimous event, the singer’s exit from the stadium became the highlight of the evening. Kanye levitated out of the arena as the show came to a close.
