[Intro: Kanye West with Stalone]
Forever, yeah
Can you hear me? Yeah
Forever, yeah
Forever, forever, no
Oh yeah, glory, glory, glory
Glory, glory, glory, glory

[Spoken Word: Donda West, Kanye West, Kanye West & Stalone]
It feels good to be home
And to all of you, I thank you so much for your support
For your support of me for so many years
And more importantly, for the work you continue to do
What do you want me to talk about?
Well, he said something that was a little bit dangerous
He told me I could talk about anything I wanted to
And you know, I am my son’s mother
The man I describe in the introduction as being so decidedly different
My son (When you’re runnin’ outta timе and you’re not outta time)
And what made thе project extra special to me is
I got a chance to share not only what he has meant to me
But what he has meant to a generation (Change the time)
As one writer said, we came from somewhere
Not just from the wombs of our mothers and the seeds of our fathers
But from a long line of generations who came before us

[Chorus: The World Famous Tony Williams & Sunday Service Choir]
It’s the kingdom (It’s the kingdom)
And the power (And the power)
And the glory (And the glory)
Forever (Forever)
It’s the kingdom (It’s the kingdom)
And the power (And the power)
And the glory (And the glory)
Forever (Forever)

[Outro: Kanye West & Stalone, Donda West]
Forever, yeah
Forever, yeah
Forever, forever, no
Oh yeah, glory, glory, glory
What did I teach him? (Glory)
And why Kanye ain’t scared?“Donda” is the title-track of Kanye West’s tenth studio album Donda, and it serves as more of an interlude on the record, allowing room for Kanye’s late mother Donda West to continue her talkings about Kanye following the intense “Heaven and Hell”. The song features The World Famous Tony Williams, who does the chorus, and Stalone, who helps with the intro and the background vocals.The track was played at multiple public listening parties for the album, which happened in Las Vegas and Atlanta. The major difference between the song’s versions and one released in the album is that a trading verse between Pusha T and Kanye was removed. The verse was based off of a reference track Pusha had recorded for Kanye, but the words were edited to sound like a conversation.Even though this song is titled “Donda”, another track of the same name was recorded and intended to be on the original version of the album.
