Selena Gomez attends the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted By Graydon Carter at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 28, 2016 in Beverly Hills, Calif. 

A new front-runner has emerged in the closely watched bid for world domination. No, we're not talking about the 2016 election: Instagram has a new most-followed person!

Beyonce is No Longer the Most Followed Person on Instagram

Selena Gomez snagged the unofficial social-media honor Monday (March 14), when she notched 69.4 million followers. Taylor Swift, the previous record-holder, follows with 69.2 million and Kim Kardashian currently pushes content to 63.6 million followers.

How does Gomez win it all? Check out her most recent Instagram post, with the singer and a bunch of sweet kids. Who wouldn't like that?
