50 Cent is convinced Chris Brown is the new king of pop, this after CB reached a milestone in his musical career.

And, of course he has a little shade to add.

Fifty posted a message on Instagram Saturday morning pointing out to his fans that Brown has just become the 7th highest selling artist for singles in the US.

According to the message, "Chris Brown has sold 69.5 Million singles in the US, making him the 7th best selling singles artist of all time. He has now total 100M RIAA certified units!"

In the music biz, RIAA is "Recording Industry Association of America" and awards certification based on the number of albums and singles sold through retail and other ancillary markets.

So, Fifty declared "CB better then [sic] MJ to me now."

The rapper also decided to add his two cents on the allegations against Jackson for child sexual assault, writing, "I can’t believe mike wanted to touch the little boys booty."

MJ was acquitted in 2005 on charges of child molestation.

This comes on the heels of the documentary "Leaving Neverland," based on two alleged victims of Jackson's.

As we reported, the Jackson estate has come out firing against the two men, saying they only made the film after they failed to write books or succeed in other avenues of their own careers.

It's interesting the 'Power' star would reference any criminal allegations against either pop star. Just a reminder, Brown was convicted of brutally beating Rhianna when the couple dated years ago.

Either way, it is a huge accomplishment for the singer and he joins company like Elton John, Elvis, Garth Brooks, Mariah Carey and Pink Floyd.
