On Monday (Oct. 23), Ty Dolla $ign announced a “multi stadium listening event” for his reported joint album with Kanye West.

The simple IG announcement — the lone post on Ty’s otherwise-wiped-clean account — has a black background with white text that shows the yen “Y” symbol with a dollar-sign symbol and the words “multi stadium listening event November 3rd.”

Billboard reported on Oct. 13 that Ye and Ty were shopping a joint project to distributors and that West would “make a decision soon.” The album would mark the first release for Ye since a series of antisemitic comments late last year, which led to Def Jam parent company Universal Music Group distancing from the artist. “Def Jam’s relationship with Ye as a recording artist, Def Jam’s partnership with the GOOD Music label venture and Ye’s merchandise agreement with Bravado all ended in 2021,” a label rep told Billboard at the time.

On Oct. 15, Billboard reported that West’s team was working to produce a concert in Italy to promote the collaborative album. The rapper was spotted in Italy with wife Bianca Censori and a stage was even built at RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia, but the plan appeared to have fizzled as of late last week, with Billboard Italy conceding via sources that it was “very unlikely” to move forward.

According to Ty’s post, it appears that the promo plan has pivoted to a “multi stadium listening event” on Nov. 3, though that could still potentially include international locations.

Ye and Ty last collaborated on “Junya Pt 2” from West’s 2021 album, Donda. Before that, they worked together on Ty Dolla $ign’s “Ego Death” (2020) and on West’s “Everything We Need” (2019), “Real Friends” (2016) and “Only One” (2014).

West is no stranger to massive listening events for his new albums, hosting three sessions at stadiums for Donda back in 2021: two in Atlanta and one in his native Chicago.
