Impressively, the "Wolves" singer clocked in with over 130 million followers, besting soccer superstar Christiano Ronaldo's count of 116 million. Other pop stars in the Top 10 include Ariana Grande (115 million), Beyoncé (108 million), Taylor Swift (104.6 million) and Justin Bieber (93.9 million).
From the hills of Hollywood, Kim Kardashian West (104.9 million), Kylie Jenner (99.5 million), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (96 million) and Kendall Jenner (84.8 million) rounded out the Top 10.
Narrowing in on Instagram's most-followed Canadians, however, gives Bieber the top spot. Drake (38.6 million), Shawn Mendes (26.9 million), the Weeknd (15.9 million) and Ryan Reynolds (15.7 million) came in as runners-up.
As for the individual 'grams that got the most love, Beyoncé slayed the competition with her pregnancy announcement in February. The photo of Bey with her unborn twins shattered Gomez's previous record for the most likes on a single photo — within just 11 hours. To date, the post has racked up a whopping 11.1 million little hearts (and inspired cheese sculptors around the world).
Bey also unveiled the first photo of twins Sir Carter and Rumi one month after they were born, and that post landed as the fourth most-liked photo of the year.
Gomez clocked in with an impressive five photos in the Top 10 most-liked, garnering 10.3 million likes for the post in which she revealed that she had undergone a kidney transplant, and a few million more a piece for a couple photos showing off her then-beau the Weeknd.
Ronaldo filled in the remaining three spots on the list of most-liked 2017 posts.
Bieber once again proved the most popular Canadian celebrity, racking up all three of the top posts by a Canuck (none of them featuring shirts).

I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
