    Released: June 15, 2019
  2. "Money in the Grave"
    Released: June 15, 2019

The Best in the World Pack is the third extended play by Canadian rapper Drake. It was released on June 15, 2019 by Frozen Moments, Republic Records and OVO Sound. It contains the dual singles "Omertà" and "Money in the Grave", with the latter featuring a guest appearance from American rapper Rick Ross, and later becoming Drake's 26th and Ross' 2nd number one (as well as their 87th and 35th career charted single), respectively, on Billboard's Rhythmic Songs chart in August 2019.[2][3] Multiple publications noted that the EP marks Drake's first release outside of the Cash Money Records and Young Money Records record labels.[4][5][6] Instead, on streaming services, the release lists "2019 Frozen Moments, LLC, under exclusive licensing to Republic Records, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc".[5] Billboard confirmed that Frozen Moments has previously been listed on additional OVO projects.[5]

Background[edit]

Drake posted the cover of both songs on his social media on June 14, 2019. After the NBA Championship win of the Toronto Raptors, the songs served as a "celebration release".[7][8] Drake was named Global Ambassador of the team and was previously seen attending the 2019 NBA Finals.[9]
