Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey offered a possible release plan for Kanye West‘s highly-anticipated record DONDA, which has been delayed twice this year alone.

Taking to his platform to make a suggestion, Dorsey shared that the release of DONDA could be similar to that of The Life of Pablo‘s. “And…this is unlikely and maybe against the creative process…but it would be incredible if @kanyewest put out #DONDA as it is now and continued to update it until he feels it’s ‘finished,’” he wrote. “…so we can all witness the work evolve in real time.”

Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe agreed in his response, noting the similarities with the 2016 record: “Pablo. It’s a great thing. Pure process.”

Ye held his second DONDA listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on August 5, under the presumption that the record was going to drop on August 6. HYPEBEAST was present at the listening party and delivered live updates, photos and videos as the event rolled out, but the album itself failed to materialize. A pre-order for DONDA did appear on Apple Music, however, with a release date scheduled for August 9 before being pushed back to August 17. As of writing, there is still no official release date from West’s team.

In related news, Mike Dean confirmed that Kanye West actually called him while on stage during the DONDA listening party.
