Selena Gomez is officially the queen of Instagram.

The "Good For You" singer took to Snapchat, ironically, to share the good news with her fans on Saturday.

Gomez now has 69.1 million followers on Instagram, followed closely behind by her BFF, Taylor Swift, who has 69 million people watching her every move.

Despite their popularity, the massive number puts the actress-singer a few million followers ahead of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The leading ladies of the family, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, have a healthy 63.4 million and 54.1 million people keeping up with them, respectively.

While we can't imagine that she's competing with Swift, we have a feeling Gomez might enjoy the fact that she also has more fans on the social media site than her ex, Justin Bieber. The Canadian crooner isn't too far behind, however, as he has 61.3 million loyal Instagram Beliebers.

It's probably safe to say that it's photos like this sexy snap, taken during Gomez's current trip to Europe, that keep her fans coming back for more.

That and her musical updates, of course.
