Those in the know suggest his new Care Package odds 'n' sods compilation could earn more than 100,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 8. The set, which was released on Aug. 2 via OVO Sound/Republic Records, collects 17 of Drake’s stray tracks -- many of which were never officially released and only available via SoundCloud or YouTube.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the Aug. 17-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Care Package may bow at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Aug. 11.
