Reigning supreme as the most-followed music artist on Instagram of all time, Beyonce has a staggering 260 million followers on the platform. Interestingly, Beyonce doesn’t follow anyone on her account and doesn’t post anywhere near as frequently as other aforementioned artists.

Having left her page dormant since March, the RnB icon returned to Instagram on June 5, with no caption in her post.
