Drake gave us some music to stream this weekend on Apple Music and Spotify in the form of “Care Package” album.
Apple Music plans to take away all the songs we downloaded for free, and Drake is giving some of them back. On Thursday, Drizzy announced that he will be releasing “Care Package,” a compilation of songs that never made his albums, and therefore, were never available for streaming. Aubrey is known for giving his fans some losseys – singles that he drops between projects just for the heck of it, but never actually count as singles on projects. Remember when everyone was upset that “Marvin’s Room” was on Take Care back in 2011 but “Trust Issues” wasn’t? Well now die-hard Drake fans will have the chance stream that classic jam and more freely without having to dig into their iTunes library for a Limewire download.
Drake announced the new-ish project on Instagram Thursday evening. “Some of our most important moments together available in one place. Care Package,” he wrote in a caption with a list of the songs that will be featured such as “Dreams Money Can Buy,” “The Motion,” “How Bout Now,” “Trust Issues,” “Draft Day,” “4 PM in Calabasas,” and more.
This isn’t the first time the Canadian rapper has re-released mixtape-ish music on streaming platforms. In February Drake put out his classic mixtape So Far Gone on it’s 10th anniversary that was only available on YouTube or if you downloaded it in your iTunes library. But Apple recently announced that it’s getting rid of the iTunes library, and users will be solely reliant on Apple Music.
All the while the “Scorpion” rapper has been hinting for months that he’s working on an album and, as recent as Thursday, told social media that he and producer Boi1da are working together on something big. Aubrey also revealed plans to work with his longtime friend NBA star Lebron James on expanding the athlete platform, Uninterrupted, to Canada.
Drake is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
