Chris Brown’s newest disc may be called "Fortune," but Lady Luck didn’t smile down on his latest collection of tunes. The embattled R&B singer’s fifth studio record flopped in its first week out, wheezing into sixth place.

Following last year’s "F.A.M.E.," this marks the controversial star’s second consecutive debut out of the top five in Canada.

At the other end of the spectrum, Sunshine state rapper Flo Rida shot to the top of the charts selling 14,300 of his fourth studio album, "Wild Ones," according to data from Nielsen SoundScan.

Justin Bieber fans rallied around the Canadian popstar for a third week, keeping his latest disc, "Believe," in second place with 10,600 in sales. His Timberlake-esque third studio album has now sold over 85,000 and is well on its way to platinum status.

After 2010’s "Hands All Over," Maroon 5 continues to impress as their latest, "Overexposed," held steady at No. 3.

Last week’s No. 1, Linkin Park’s "Living Things," slipped to fourth spot, and MC Mario’s "Summer Anthems" debuted at No. 5.

One Direction’s platinum-selling "Up All Night" came in seventh, while Adele’s juggernaut sophomore disc, "21," finally showed signs of slowing down as her latest dropped three to No. 8.

Nineties punkers The Offspring slipped to ninth with "Days Go By," and Canadian folk rocker Neil Young rounded out the top 10 with "Americana."

In the U.S., Brown managed to take the top spot, but his latest sold almost 140,000 less than the singer’s previous album. Katy Perry’s "Teenage Dream," released almost two years ago, was in second, and Bieber’s "Believe" held tight at No. 3.
