Drake’s record smashing continues as he receives another #1 album. According to Billboard, the Toronto rapper’s late release of Care Package got the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart this past week, earning 109,000 equivalent album sales.
This gives Drizzy his ninth #1 album, Care Package that is a collection of 17 previously released Drake records, most of which were never officially released on outlets such as Itunes or Spotify. It is also the first time Drake’s newly formed OVO Sound label has a No. 1 album.
Lil Durk scored his first top 10 album ever with Love Songs 4 the Streets 2, which debuted at No. 4 with 44,000 equivalent album sales.
Drake is in the record books with Garth Brooks, Eminem, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones with nine #1 albums each. The Kings are still The Beatles. The men who were the founders of BeatleMania have nineteen (19) #1 albums. Drizzy did just beat The Beatles Hot 100 record and got a tattoo to celebrate the monumental event.
