Ye took to Instagram to share a screenshot of his recent call log, and fans were quick to point out the three calls from The Weeknd timed at 1:14 a.m., 2:17 a.m. and another one from the day before. He also tagged Mike Dean in the post, and the producer posted the same photo on his Instagram with the caption, “IF I DONT ANSWER U SEE WHY #DONDA @kanyewest.” To add even more fuel to fire, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, The Weeknd’s manager, dropped by the comments section of Dean’s post to write “XO” in emojis.
West is set to hold another listening party for DONDA at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on August 5, and the artist has been staying there since the first listening party on July 23 in order to properly finish the album. Justin LaBoy previously claimed that the album will instead drop on August 6.
