Kanye West was set to release his tenth studio album "Donda" on Friday — but fans are having trouble finding the new tracks on music streaming platforms like Spotify (SPOT) or Apple Music (AAPL). 

Despite a sold-out listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday, where a whopping 42,000 fans attended, Kanye's latest record is still nowhere to be found as fans eagerly await the new music drop.

Representatives for West did not immediately respond to Yahoo Finance's requests for comment about the album’s release plan.

Kanye West has been a bit quiet on the music scene, although his 2019 album, "Jesus is King," did go on to win Best Contemporary Christian album at the 2021 Grammys. 

On "Donda," the 44-year-old rapper has several celebrity features, including Pusha T, Lil Baby and even a verse from Jay-Z. 

Social media was ablaze on Friday over news of the Jay-Z collaboration, as the two have been honest about having a strained relationship over the years. It’s the first time the duo has collaborated since 2011's "Watch the Throne" album.

West has established himself as a notable brand outside of the music scene. 

Most recently, the rapper signed a 10 year deal with Gap (GPS) — and debuted his second product in the collection on Friday. 

The new product, a black iteration of the $200 blue puffer jacket that was released for pre-sale orders last month, will be available for shipping this winter.

Gap has struggled with an identity crisis in recent years but the retailer's big bet on Kanye West looks like it might just pay off. 

According to a recent note from Wells Fargo, the new Gap Yeezy line could bring in nearly $1 billion in incremental sales in 2022. West's Yeezy brand, which was valued at $3 billion in 2019, has helped lift his net worth significantly. 

Yeezy sneaker sales have held up significantly well over the years with revenue growing 30% in 2020 — despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

Various reports say his net worth could range anywhere from $1.8 billion to $6.6 billion.
