Shakira is at an all-time high!

The musician broke a major barrier this past weekend when she became the most followed person on Facebook with an astonishing 86.7 million likes! The Colombiana narrowly beat out Rihanna, who fell to second place with 86.3 million likes. 

In response to the news, Shakira took to Facebook to thank her fans for their endless support.

"Wow... I was just told I now have the most-followed page on Facebook in the world! I still cannot believe it!" she wrote on her page. "I always wanted to have a lot of friends but never imagined it would be so many... 86 [million]! So humbled, can't thank you guys enough for your support. I feel so fortunate to have you. Giant kiss! Forever thankful." The post was accompanied by a picture of the gorgeous Latina blowing a kiss to the camera.

The announcement is just the beginning of a big week for Shakira. On March 25, her self-titled new album hits stores.

Congrats, Shak! You deserve it!
