The surprise iTunes-exclusive release of Channel Orange sold 131,000 copies, landing Ocean the No. 2 spot on the Billboard "200" — behind country group Zac Brown Band, who had an Amazon MP3 deal working in their favor. Justin Bieber held at No.3; Chris Brown dropped to No.4; and Maroon 5 rounds out the top five. Anyway, congrats, Frank!
