DONDA day is here, or at least, it was: today was the day that Kanye West previously shared would be the release of his highly anticipated record. Instead, the rapper spent much of August 5 livestreaming from his room inside the Mercedez-Benz Arena, where he's reportedly been living to finish the album before the DONDA premiere later that day.

Apple Music shared a link to the livestream across its socials, and fans have since been watching the rapper do everything from doing push-ups and lifting weights, to getting a visit from Chance the Rapper, Steve Lacy, and Vic Mensa. The audio has also intentionally been muted, so we can only imagine what conversations are going on inside the small room.

Thus far, Kanye himself has mainly appeared on the stream wearing a mask – something that's become an outfit staple throughout the DONDA era. He's also revealed some of the Demna Gvasalia-designed merch that was on sale at the event.

Fans are eagerly anticipating the album, and have taken to Twitter to share their fascination (and confusion) with the livestream, sharing screenshots and updates from the ongoing stream. There's yet no information as to what will happen following the stream, but a list of international locations has been shared on the rapper's website, alluding to potential listening party locations and/or viewings.

If you're looking to watch Kanye being Kanye, the live stream is available exclusively on Apple Music though enterprising fans have uploaded plenty of clips to social media and YouTube.
