Drake poses with the awards for Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for “Scorpion,” in the press room during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 1, 2019, in Las Vegas.

(CNN) - Drake got a special delivery with his new album, "Care Package."

The rapper has extended his own record on the charts with the CD, which has earned him his ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.

"Care Package" gathers 17 of Drake's tracks that were never officially released, some of which listeners could find in the past only via Soundcloud or YouTube.

Drake currently holds the title as the artist with the most No. 1 albums this decade.

All nine of his albums on that list have been released since 2010.

Drake is tied with Garth Brooks, Eminem, Madonna and The Rolling Stones, who also have had nine each atop the Billboard 200.

He has a bit to go to overtake some chart legends, including The Beatles (19), Jay-Z (14), Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand (11), and Elvis Presley (10).
