Not only do Shakira’s hips not lie, her ‘Likes’ don’t either.

Facebook announced last week (Mar. 21) that Colombian singer Shakira was the most liked musician on the social site, clocking in with over 86.3 million Likes. The Latin songstress beat out Bajan beauty/ “Can’t Remember To Forget You” duet partner Rihanna for the top spot, who had 86.2 million likes.

The Voice coach shared a post on Facebook, thanking her fans in English and Spanish.

“Wow… I was just told I now have the most-followed page on Facebook in the world! I still cannot believe it!” she said. “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 “Hips Don’t Lie” singer is gearing up for the release of her self titled tenth album, set to drop March 25.
