Kanye West has began work on a follow-up to his Donda album, which will be released in 2021.
Last year, West, who now goes by the moniker Ye, released his tenth studio album, which is dedicated to his late mother.
According to Steven Victor, the rapper's G.O.O.D. Music label's chief operating officer, the star is already working on a direct follow-up, which will be the first time he has published a sequel to any of his recordings.
"Ye has started working on his new masterpiece, Donda 2," Victor told Complex.
West was spotted in the studio with fellow hip-hop star Scarface last week, but no details on the new project have been released.
Following a series of weird public listening sessions and delays, the 44-year-old dropped Donda in August.
But its surprise launch and controversies surrounding the inclusion of DaBaby and Marilyn Manson as guest artists didn't harm its success, as it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and topped the U.K. albums chart.
Donda also set a new record by reaching the top spot on Apple Music's top albums chart in 152 countries in 24 hours.
