Final Numbers Are In: Drake’s ‘Care Package’ Sold…

Published: Wednesday 14th Aug 2019 by Rashad

Drake‘s no stranger to enjoying views from the top of the Billboard 200 and, thanks to his recently delivered ‘Care Package,’ he’s revisiting the tally’s perch.

As we reported here, Drizzy sprung a summery surprise on fans last week with the release of his affectionately titled compilation project (comprised of early musical gems that, prior to now, hadn’t been available to stream on the leading services).

After just a day of availability, industry analysts predicted the set would top this week’s album chart to the tune of 100,000-120,000 sold.  Now, with its first full week of sales tracking behind it, look inside to see if they were close to the mark:


Drake’s ‘Care Package’

First Week Sales (SPS):  109,000

First Week Sales (Pure): 16,000

Chart Placement #1

‘Care Package’ is the 6 God’s 9th career chart-topper (the most of any artist this decade).  The feat puts him in legendary company, according to a Billboard report:

He’s tied with Garth BrooksEminemMadonna and The Rolling Stoneswith nine each. Ahead of them: The Beatles (19), Jay-Z (14), Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand (11), and Elvis Presley (10).
