Kanye West’s Donda Album Decoded: All the Lyrics About Ex Kim Kardashian, Love and Heartache


While Kanye West and soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian may no longer be a couple, it appears their breakup did inspire parts of new album.

The rapper’s highly anticipated record Donda was released on Sunday, Aug. 29. This past February, the reality star and mother of their four children—North West, 8, Saint West, 5, Chicago West, 3, and Psalm West, 2, filed for divorce from him after six years of marriage

Despite their split and her filing, which was made following months of private turmoil between the two, Kim has supported Kanye in his efforts to promote Donda, which he finished making just weeks ago while living inside a stadium. The SKIMS founder, accompanied by their kids, attended all three major listening parties for the album, including the most recent one held at Chicago’s Soldier Field last week. There, Kim wore a new wedding dress as she appeared alongside her ex.

While many fans speculated that her gesture symbolized a reconciliation, it was not. “She knew how much this meant to him and was honored to be involved,” a source close to Kim told E! News. “The wedding dress was symbolic of their relationship and for the song. It was not a vow renewal. There is still so much love between the two, but they aren’t reconciling.”

See how Kanye raps and sings about Kim, love, heartache and family on Donda:

The two cooled things off after a couple of months. A source close to her told E! News , “It was never serious. [Kanye] wanted to pursue something with Irina that wasn’t going to happen. He got very busy with work, and they were in different places. It kind of fizzled out from there. They are still friendly and there’s a lot of mutual respect. It just was never going to turn into a full-blown relationship.”

Architectual Digest featured it in a 2020 issue, along with an interview with the couple. ” Architectural Digest , but I needed home improvement,” Kanye raps. “Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it.” In 2019, Kanye purchased a $14 million ranch in Wyoming . He later spent much time there away from his wife and children. In January, a month before the divorce filing, a source told E! News that it had gotten to the point where the pair hadn’t spent time together as a married couple in months, adding, “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.” In February 2021, a source close to Kim said Kanye remains “a big part” of his kids’ lives, who have “primarily been with Kim and living at the house” in Southern California. “Any time Kanye wants to see them, he can,” the insider added. “She is not stopping him.”

The track includes the lyrics, “Startin’ to feel like you ain’t been happy for me lately, darlin’ / ‘Member when you used to come around and serenade me, woah / But I guess it’s gone different in a different direction lately / Tryna do the right thing with the freedom that you gave me.”

News that Kanye “changed his phone number,” adding, “Kim can’t reach him directly. He will communicate with the kids through their team and coordinate sleepovers and such.”
