Country group Zac Brown Band's third studio album, "Uncaged," has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, toppling R&B and pop star Chris Brown's record "Torture."

"Uncaged" is the second album released by Zac Brown Band to debut in first place and has sold more than 234,000 copies since it hit stores on July 10, Billboard said. Its second studio album, "You Get What You Give," topped the chart at 2010 and sold 153,000 copies in its first week.

The new album contains the single "The Wind," which was released in June.

Debuting at No. 2 is R&B artist Frank Ocean with his first studio album, "Channel Orange," which has sold at least 131,000 copies since its July 10 release. The singer made headlines earlier this month when he penned a Tumblr blog post in which he opened up about his sexuality and his first love - who was a man.

Justin Bieber remains at No. 3 with "Believe," his third studio album, which was released on June 15. Ocean, under his birth name Christopher Breaux, co-wrote Bieber's 2009 song "Bigger."

Chris Brown's fifth studio album, "Torture," is at No. 4. It was released on June 29. No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart is Adam Levine's rock and pop group Maroon 5's fifth studio album, "Overexposed," which was in fourth place last week. The record, which contains the single "Payphone," was released on June 26.
