Care Package features 17 tracks, many of which were never officially released. Since the release on Aug. 2, 109,000 equivalent album units were earned in the United States.

Out of Drake’s 11 entries on the list, only two haven’t made it to the top. So Far Gone mixtape and So Far Gone EP- a distillation of the mixtape landed at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.

This new top honour does mean that Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project falls to second place.
