Selena Gomez is setting social media records without even breaking a sweat.
According to E! News, the 23-year-old singer/actress just set a new record on for most “liked” photo in the network’s history. In the photo, which was posted two weeks ago, Selena is sporting carefree waves in her hair, a red top, red nails and sipping from a Coca-Cola bottle. This pic, though nothing extraordinary by Instagram’s photographic standards, has amassed 4.1 million likes (and counting)!
“When your lyrics are on the bottle,” Sel captioned the pic.
The pic is actually a reference to Coke’s “Share a Coke and a Song” campaign which features song lyrics on select soda bottles. Everything about the pic, from Selena’s wardrobe to the Coke bottle featuring lyrics from her song “Me & the Rhythm,” is perfectly tailored and yet comes off as casual as can be. That’s the key to the photo’s success.
Before this, the title-holder for “most liked” IG pic was Justin Bieber, but Sel had a little something to do with that too. Back in March of this year, Biebs posted a throwback pic of him and Selena – also known as Jelena ‑ captioning the lovelorn snap, “Feels.”
Even though the couple broke up back in 2014, the low-res throwback gained 3.7 million likes. Of course, it helped that Selena herself liked the pic.
With 89.2 million followers, Selena is also currently the most followed person on Instagram, beating out other big names like Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Bieber and her friend Taylor Swift. Gomez is currently on her Revival World Tour and will no doubt keep gained follows as her show heads to Asia and Europe this summer.
