The true Instagram queen! The social media app released its list of the most-liked photos of 2016, and it’s no surprise Selena Gomez had eight of the top 10. The other two spots on the list went to soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Even though the “Hands to Myself” singer, 24, took a 90-day break from her cellphone and the internet, she’s still the most-followed celebrity on the app with more than 103 million followers.

Here are the 10 most popular pics of 2016 in order:

The most-liked Instagram photo of all time — with more than 5.9 million likes — goes to a June ad of the pop star sipping a Coke from a bottle. It features lyrics from her 2015 track “Me and the Rhythm.”
