Los Angeles, July 13 (IANS) Singer Selena Gomez has reportedly broken the record for the most liked Instagram post ever, attracting 4 million likes for a photograph of herself sipping Coca-Cola.
The “Come and get it” hitmaker — who is followed by 89.1 million people on the social media site — shared the image two weeks ago and it has already garnered 4 million-plus likes, over 300,000 more than the previous record-holding image, which she also featured in, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The photograph showed the 23-year-old singer wearing a red top and staring at the camera as she sipped the carbonated beverage through a striped straw.
Referring to the fact that her song “Me & the rhythm” is quoted on the bottle as part of the drinks company’s ‘Share a Coke and a Song’ campaign, Gomez captioned the post: “When your lyrics are on the bottle”.
The record was previously held by a blurry throwback photograph posted by Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber in March that featured them kissing, and had attracted 3.7 million likes.
Prior to the former couple’s record-breaking photographs, the most liked image on the photo-sharing website was of Kendall Jenner with her hair formed into hearts that had attracted 3.6 million likes.
