Los Angeles - Selena Gomez has broken the record for the most liked Instagram post ever.
The Come and Get It hitmaker - who is also the most followed with 89.1m followers 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 3.7m 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. (sic)"
