Selena Gomez’s Instagram post has just surpassed all others, receiving the most likes in Instagram history. The pop star has beat out ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, who currently held the title for most Instagram likes from a picture he posted back in March, coincidentally of the two of them.
Selena Gomez’s Instagram post is currently at just over four million likes. With 89.2 million followers and counting on the social media platform, the 23-year-old just set a record.
Posing in a red tank top, seen below, she’s drinking from a Coca-Cola bottle with the words “You’re the Spark” on the label, which happen to be lyrics from her 2015 song “Me & the Rhythm” from her album Revival.
It’s one of two Gomez songs featured in the soda’s “Share a Coke and a Song” campaign — “Love You Like a Love Song” is on another one of the labels.
Selena Gomez’s Instagram post was put up about two weeks ago. Her photo got about 300,000+ likes more than the social media platform’s previous most-liked photo.
Sporting her newly colored hair, long red nails, and her signature music note tattoo, Selena sips Coca-Cola from a striped straw. Can it get any more picture perfect than that?
Selena has a dedicated fan base and is currently on tour after releasing a new album Revival.
Her earliest of fans may always think of Gomez as little Alex Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place in our hearts, but this girl is a major success in the music industry, selling more than 6.7 million albums and 22 million singles worldwide, according to Billboard.
Selena has made some big transformations over the past few years. She has moved out of her Disney “good girl” image and has blossomed into a beautiful and confident young woman. Her latest album is a testament to that.
However, Selena is not one to leave people from her past behind. Disney friends Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale have remained close with the star since her overwhelming success.
The two High School Musical stars even came out to support Gomez at one of her shows on her latest tour, according to Teen Vogue.
With her outstandingly loyal fans, lively music, and entertaining personality, it is no wonder that Selena has become one of the most loved celebrities of our time.
Selena Gomez’s Instagram post raked in over four million likes — that is a lot of people!
Whether it’s the waves in her hair or sultry eyes, there’s no doubt that this pic is hot, but what makes it the most-liked Instagram post in history?
The previous title holder was an image of Kendall Jenner with her hair formed into hearts that has 3.6 million likes. Jenner made headlines with the multi-million likes back in 2015 and once more last spring when she was dethroned by Bieber.
But there is a new Instagram Queen in town, and it does not seem like Selena is going anywhere anytime soon.
Selena Gomez’s Instagram post is certainly not the last of the great pics we will see of the star in the near future.
Selena has been on the road for her “Revival Tour” since May, which means we can look forward to more Insta pics as she heads to Asia and Europe later this year.
You can also catch Gomez in the latest Netflix original movie The Fundamentals of Caring. Gomez co-stars with actors Paul Rudd, Bobby Cannavale, Jennifer Ehle, and more.
Director Rob Burnett said some impressive things about Selena in an interview with Just Jared.
“Selena brought a visceral understanding to the part of Dot. She adds a compelling energy to the film at just the right moment.”
“Of Selena’s many great qualities, I think my two favorites are that she works hard and has no ego. She auditioned three times for the part, which is unusual for someone of her stature. I really enjoyed our collaboration.”
