All hail, Selena Gomez, the queen of Instagram!

Gomez not only has the most followers on the social media site, she also garnered the most “liked” posts on Instagram in 2016.

According Instagram’s analysis of the year via Entertainment Weekly, the “Good For You” singer has 103 million Instagram followers, which puts her at the top of the list above the likes of Taylor Swift (93.6 million), who has the number two spot, and Ariana Grande (89.6 million) in the number three spot.

For reference Queen Bey aka Beyoncé is number four at 88.9 million followers and Kim Kardashian, the self-appointed queen of social media, has 87.8 million to round out the top five.

Gomez also has eight of the top 10 most liked posts on Instagram, which is just insane. Her most liked photo for the whole year is this sassy Coca-Cola shot.

Honestly, the only thing she didn’t win, according to Instagram’s report, was Instagram stories. The top Instagram stories instead went to Brooklyn Beckham, Chrissy Teigen and Dwayne Johnson.

Way to go Selena, we just love you!
