Kanye West held his second listening event for his album Donda at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday with Kim Kardashian and their children in attendance.

The rapper revealed the newest song from his 10th studio album, possibly titled “Lord I Need You,” which appears to reference the 44-year-old’s relationship with the Kardashian, specifically their ongoing divorce.

The song’s lyrics implied that West’s wife was still in love with him. He rapped, “Time and space is a luxury / But you came here to show that you’re still in love with me.” Kardashian has attended both of the artist’s listening events, along with their children: daughters North, eight, and Chicago, three, as well as sons Saint, five, and Psalm, two.

At the second listening event, he introduced updated lyrics to the track “Love Unconditionally,” which he originally debuted at the first event. It featured a recording of the rapper’s late mother giving advice about love, marriage and commitment. She said, “Two lessons that he passed along to his children. The first is that no matter what, you never abandon your family. The second was that no matter what, you love unconditionally.”

During the first listening party, West had rapped, “I’m losing my family,” but  the lyrics changed to, “I’m losing all my family / Darling, come back to me.”

Some of his other lyrics include: “She’s screaming at me / Honey, why could you leave? / Darling, how could you leave? / Come back tonight, baby / Come back tonight, darling, please / Darling, how could you leave?”

Even though he debuted the album to sold-out crowds, the rapper has delayed the highly anticipated release of LP several times. It had been pushed back to last Friday, but, as of late, has not reached streaming platforms.

Donda will be West’s first album since Kardashian filed for divorce in February, after four kids and six years of marriage.
