Kanye West and Jay-Z have reunited for a new track on Kanye's Donda album.

On Thursday, Kanye hosted a listening event in Atlanta, previewing some of the tracks from the project.

While the album includes collaborations with artists like Pop Smoke, Pusha T and Travis Scott, it was the surprise collab with Jay-Z that had everyone talking.

Jay-Z and Kanye famously worked together on their 2011 Watch the Throne project and had a close working relationship for years prior to that.

While there was some "beef" between the stars for a bit, they seem to have put that all behind them - and their fans could not be happier.

According to a tweet shared by producer Young Guru, Jay-Z had recorded his verse for the track at 16:00 on Thursday, just hours before the listening party.

Kanye's Donda album is expected to arrive on Friday, 23 July. Though, at the time of publishing, the record was still not available on streaming services.
