Selena Gomez has broken the record for the most liked Instagram post ever.

The ‘Come and Get It’ hitmaker – who is followed by 89.1 million people on the social media site – shared a photo of herself sipping Coca-Cola two weeks ago and the image has already garnered over four million likes, over 300,000 more than the previous record-holding image – which she also featured in.

The record was previously held by a blurry throwback photo posted by Selena’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber in March that featured the former couple kissing, and had attracted 3.7 million likes.

The new most popular picture showed the 23-year-old singer wearing a red top and staring directly at the camera

as she sips the carbonated beverage through a striped straw.

Referring to the fact her song ‘Me & the Rhythm’ is quoted on the bottle as part of the drinks company’s ‘Share a Coke and a Song’ campaign, Selena captioned the post: “when your lyrics are on the bottle.”

Prior to Selena and Justin’s record-breaking photos, the most liked photo was a 2015 image of Kendall Jenner with her hair formed into hearts that had attracted 3.6 million likes.

Selena recently admitted she is “done” talking about her on/off relationship with Justin, who she was with from 2011 to 2014.

She said: “At first I didn’t care. To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared.

“Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go. I’m so exhausted. I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
