Drake released Care Package on Friday Aug. 2, a compilation of deep cuts that diehard from “I Get Lonely” to “Days in the East” and “How Bout Now”

so while you reach for the nearest Kleenex and a bottle of Merlot, Billboard ranked every song on the album based on how deep they take you down the rabbit hole of self-pity.

Drake released his second song in two days, “Days in the East.”
Drake changes the pace from the subliminal-charged “Draft Day” to the slow, affair-themed PARTYNEXTDOOR and Noah “40” Shebib-produced track.

The Toronto rapper-singer’s latest surprise offering, “Days in the East,” produced by October’s Very Own label roster members PARTYNEXTDOOR and co-produced by Drake’s regular sonic auteur Noah “40” Shebib, the slow, spacey track dramatically switches up its feel about halfway through.

“I Get Lonely”

TLC’s 1999 FanMail song Drake managed to push it even further with his 2010 rendition, it becomes a soundtrack for those nights when you’re clutching your pillow in hopes that special someone calls you back.

“Days in the East”
Back in 2014, Drake and Rihanna were still going through the motions of their alleged on-off relationship. And boy, did the rapper feel a way about it (the song samples Rihanna’s “Stay”).

“How Bout Now”
2014’s “How Bout Now,” this vengeful track still remains an inspiration for those Instagram captions dedicated to ex-flames.

The New York Times
When Drake posted “Dreams Money Can Buy” on his label’s blog in May 2011, two historic events were just over the horizon: the U.S. launch of Spotify in July and the inauguration of “YOLO” as the national catchphrase in November.
