Elvis Presley will forever be the King of Rock and Roll, but according to him — or at least his estate — Justin Bieber is the King of Pop, 21st century edition.
When Justin’s new album, Changes, debuted at number one recently, it made him, at age 25, the youngest artist ever to score seven number-one albums. The previous record holder was Elvis, which is why his estate tweeted its congratulations Tuesday to Justin on the chart achievement.
“Yesterday, music history was made. What does the King of Rock n Roll have in common with the 21st century King of Pop?” the Elvis account wrote, re-tweeting Justin’s tweet about the chart stats. “Congratulations on setting a new record.”
The tweet brushed the fans the wrong way and frankly, for the right reason! Of course Elvis will always be the King of Rock and Roll and in the same way, Michael Jackson will always be the King of Pop.Yesterday, music history was made.

EPE [Elvis Presley Enterprises] runs the Estate of Elvis Presley but as many artist, the socials are ran by the Record company (here is Sony… Just to make it worse).
To note, John Branca used to run the Elvis Estate and both Michael’s and Elvis’s Estates are signed to ABG for licensing and merchandising! So it is hard to understand such a goofy mistake on social media!
A silly inaccuracy made by a young overzealous intern or a purposely done-mistake to attract social media attention, we let that to you to decide!
But be sure that Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, yesterday, today and tomorrow! No offence to Justin Bieber!
