Drake has officially scored his ninth No. 1 album with Care Package, according to Billboard reports. The compilation album, consisting of 17 tracks previously unavailable on streaming services like "Dreams Money Can Buy" and "Girls Love Beyoncé", topped the Billboard 200 albums chart with 109,000 equivalent album units earned, with 16,000 in pure sales. As the songs on the project were never official singles or featured on any of his previous albums, they were previously only available on Soundcloud or Youtube.
