Artist Awol Erizku can claim the most popular Instagram photo of the year, posted by Beyoncé in February. The shot is insanely popular with 11.1 million likes and counting. Of course, this is due to the fact that the image doubled as a pregnancy announcement for twins Rumi and Sir Carter born in July. Besides taking the top post for 2017, the photo ranks as the most liked Instagram post EVER.
#Love reigned supreme as the year’s top hashtag, but #art saw the fifth largest growth in use on the app for the year, after #photography, #2017, #travel, and #instagood.
