Drake’s newest offering was released on Aug. 2. and features songs fans have already vibe to like “Jodeci Freestyle” featuring J. Cole and “Free Spirit” featuring Rick Ross. Yet, Drizzy fans still gave massive support to the project in a major way. Care Package moved 109,000 equivalent album units in the U.S., reports to Nielsen Music. Of that tally, 16,000 were made up of traditional album sales.
Following this album’s No. 1 placement, Drake continues his streak of chart topping projects since 2010 with nine straight up. Drake is just now a spot behind Elvis Presley who owns 10, but still nine No. 1 albums behind the all-time leading Beatles (19).
Other hip-hop artists in this week’s top 10 include Chris Brown (Indigo) No. 5, NF (The Search) No. 6, Lizzo (Cuz I Love You) No. 8 and Chance The Rapper, whose The Big Day album slipped from No. 2 last week to No. 9 currently.
After touring in the spring, Aubrey is working on a new project that could add to his run.
