Not only is he dating supermodel Irina Shayk -- the 44-year-old rapper is reportedly set to drop a new album this week.

Kanye has yet to make any announcements, but album rumors sparked over the weekend after social media influencer Justin Laboy claimed he was part of 'Ye's private listening party.

Laboy says the super-secret event went down in Las Vegas, just hours after Kanye was spotted with Kim over 500 miles away in San Francisco.

The influencer even posted a photo with Kanye and NBA star Kevin Durant as proof.

"Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back #Respectfully," Laboy tweeted Sunday.

"Kanye West album is really done. When it drops this week, we probably not going to listen to anything else for a while.. Let me go enjoy all the current artist I’m listening to until then. God bless," he continued.

Laboy isn't the only one who enjoyed the album.

The album is rumored to be named after Kanye's late mom, "Donda," and will be his first album since his 2019 one, Jesus Is King.

Kanye proved to be a jet setter over the weekend because hours before his listening party in Sin City, he was in San Francisco with his soon-to-be ex-wife and their four kids.

Radar has learned, Kimye put their differences aside to take North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, to the Asian Art Museum.

We spoke with Zac Rose, the associate communications director for the museum, who told us, "We opened a little early for them, to avoid a spectacle, and give them some independence and privacy."

Despite their ongoing $2.1 divorce battle, we've learned the two were cordial during their family visit.

Kimye was "gracious" and "appreciative" of the tour, with Rose telling Radar the estranged couple had a "great time" with their kids.
