Michael Jackson was an American singer born in the year 1958 and died in 2009. Jackson was a star child and the lead singer of the Jackson 5, which included his older brothers. He was regarded as the king of pop because he was the most influential and significant figure of the 20th century.

His music achievements helped to bring a new era to the music world in the united states; he completed the desegregation of popular music in the united states and introduced multiculturalism for the new generation.

He also extends his influence to the fashion world. Since the era of Michael Jackson, we are yet to see a great pop artist with great influence and recognition. He brought new dance moves, meaningful and catchy music, which was received all over the world.

Michael Jackson is universally known as the king of pop for a number of reasons. Firstly, Michael Jackson is perhaps the only pop artist up till now who has gained unmatchable global recognition by selling millions of records all over the globe. Apart from catchy music, Michael Jackson also introduced an all new form of dance.

Together, both of these contributions set him apart from the rest of the pop artists of his time. This is one of the main reasons why Michael Jackson is universally considered to be the king of pop. However, while this is not the only reason, it is certainly the main one!
