The enlightened experience that is Kanye West’s Donda is certainly one that will be discussed for many years to come.
With four separate listening parties, a plethora of delays and album edits galore, West’s god-given musical talent is on full display yet again — curating a spiritually uplifting 27-track LP that delves into his personal life while paying homage to his late-mother.

Now, West and company have released the visual for the album’s ethereal track “Come To Life.” As a reproduction of his performance at Soldier Field last week, “Come To Life” is one of Ye’s most intimate performances on Donda, complementing beautiful piano progressions and robust singing from the Chicago-based icon.
Already achieving immense commercial success, Donda is currently on track to sell over 350,000 units in its first week and is expected to claim a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200.
