Queen B is Queen of Instagram no more. Beyonce has officially been dethroned by the one and only Kim Kardashian.
With a total of 44.1 million followers, Kardashian surpassed Beyonce’s 44 million as of Monday (Aug. 24), reports Tech Insider. The site shared Kardashian and Beyonce’s exact numbers of followers, and the difference isn’t even 70,000 (Kardashian is at 44,005,604 with Beyonce at 43,935,648).
Although the two have been neck and neck for a long time, Kardashian seems to be gaining followers at a faster rate — perhaps thanks to her chest selfie to celebrate 42 million followers just a couple of weeks ago. Kardashian has also posted about three times as many pictures as Beyonce, sitting at a whopping 3,022 posts when she took over Instagram’s top spot.
But it’s not just Kardashian that Beyonce should look out for while she tries to regain her InstaQueen status. Creeping up on both Beyonce and Kardashian is Taylor Swift, who isn’t far behind with 43.7 followers.
