Justin Bieber Dethrones Kendall Jenner as the Queen of Instagram -- With a Little Help From Selena Gomez!

By
Justin Bieber is the new King of Instagram, as his steamy throwback pic with ex Selena Gomez has overthrown Kendall Jenner’s reigning snap.
Although Bieber and Gomez ended their relationship in 2014, it seems the Internet still has not gotten over “Jelena.” The singer’s Instagram pic, posted in March, features the young couple locking lips, and has captured the hearts of millions—literally. Receiving about 3,569,000 likes since it was first posted, Bieber’s snap is currently ahead of Jenner’s photo by roughly 7,000 likes, including the one that really matters—a stamp of approval in the form of a double tap from Selena Gomez.
“Feels,” Bieber captioned the winning throwback snap.

Jenner’s photo has occupied the most-liked spot since June of last year. Her peaceful heart hair pic took top honors with 3.5 million likes, defeating sister Kim Kardashian’s 2014 wedding pic with Kanye West.

While Bieber’s victory may be a shock for some, it seems the key to those Instagram likes lies in nostalgia—you better get ready for Throwback Thursday! It’s only a matter of time until the next celeb reigns supreme!
