On Thursday (August 1), Drake surprised all of his Instagram followers with a picture of the
cover for a brand new album. He stated that the album was dropping in less than 24 hours and
fans were going crazy on social media for it.
The album was titled Care Package with 17 songs. However, it wasn’t 17 new songs and some
fans were a little disappointed on social media. Drake released an album with songs that had
been released before at some point in time. These songs were never made available for purchase
and they never made their way to streaming platforms like Spotify, or Apple Music. Fans could
only really find these songs on Soundcloud or YouTube, if the songs weren’t removed, but it was
still hard to hear them clearly.
The new album consisted of songs that made up the greatest hits that never were actually apart
his career. “The Motion”, was one song on the album that originally came out in June of 2013 in
a four-pack on Drake’s SoundCloud to get fans ready for Nothing Was The Same album.
However, the Sampha-assisted tune was actually a bonus track on Best Buy’s exclusive version
Other songs on Care Package included: “Paris Morton Music,” “Draft Day,” “Jodeci Freestyle,”
and freestyles like “4PM in Calabasas”, “5AM in Toronto” and more.
Drake clearly didn’t let these songs on his new album go to waste and has actually made a smart
business move. Many musicians would disregard these songs and consider them as throwaways,
but Drake is looking for gold and to top charts again.
“Care Package” is Drake’s first solo compilation album, and his first full-length release since
