Frank Ocean Kicks Maroon 5 & Chris Brown off Top 3 on Billboard 200

Frank Ocean's new album, Channel Ocean, was released last week and topped charts over seas and has seen huge success, but however country group Zac Brown Brand kicks him to number-two with their new album Uncaged. Also, making Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Maroon 5 fall out of the top three on the Billboard 200.

Maroon 5's fourth album, Overexposed, debuted and peaked at number-two a couple of weeks ago while Linkin Park took the top spot with their new album, Living Things. Maroon 5 first sold over 240,000 copies within it's first week and that number has fell 3x in the past three weeks, but with Amazon's help bringing the price of the new pop-infused album down to $4.99 the album is looking at huge success over the next week possibly taking a spot in the top three again next week. It currently charts at No. 4 on the Canadian Albums chart as well as the U.S. Billboard Digital Albums chart.
