Care Package has arrived. The 17 track collection rounds up all the loose Drake favorites from over the years, not found on any of his official album releases. From songs dropped on the way to Take Care to leaked tunes in the lead-up to Views, these are well-worn and coveted classics. Enjoy some off-season Drizzy and rewind to some songs he calls “some of our most important moments together.”

As you unwrap Care Package, here’s a reminder of when these “moments” first took place.

“ Dreams Money Can Buy”

2011. One of four songs released before Take Care.

“The Motion”

2013. Arrived as part of a four song set in advance of Nothing Was the Same.

“How Bout Now”

2014. From a three song collection called Views From The 6, Drake insisted wasn't an EP. “Just three songs I knew some hackers had.”

“Days In The East”
