February, the month of love is soon going to be over, and this month Instagram was filled with the content of love, singlehood and so much more. We chose the top 7 trends that you must have seen on the gram while mindlessly scrolling through. 

1. Flowers 

Let us start with Miley Cyrus's song, Flowers, which she released on January 13, but the song made it to everybody's Instagram feed by February. 


People went crazy over this song (especially people like us who were single exhausted with the so-called 'love week').

What made it so famous? The song had everything in it: Relationship Drama (IYKYK), revenge and well, finally, some self-love. 

If you haven't heard the song nor felt the lyrics yet, check it out here:

The song, with the iconic lyrics "I can love me better than you can" has more than 3.2 million Reels on it. 


2. Grainy Film Aesthetic Reels 

Instagram today is all about ~aesthetic~ and our love for retro; and going back in pictures is clearly visible. This month, people on Instagram were making Reels on various songs that were trending, like Escapsim or Fall in Love Alone

3. Pedro Pascal Thirst Traps

This month, the most talked about series was undoubtedly The Last Of Us, and it made headlines and inspired a lot of Instagram trends for the right reasons.

Yes, we get it that the series is famous for its plot and its accuracy in replicating the game, and the soundtrack; but we cannot forget the cast... Pedro Pascal.

When the series dropped, he came to be known as the 'Internet Daddy', and everyone was simping over this man for his accent, his savage replies, his SNL debut and well, him.


4. 'Don't be ridiculous Andrea, everybody wants this'

Remember the 2006 Hollywood classic The Devil Wears Prada? This month, the movie's most famous dialogue, 'Don't be ridiculous Andrea, everybody wants this', went viral on Instagram Reels, with people making Reels with something that is overrated and widely accepted... like having kids. 

Jokes apart, who else loves this film?

5. Tum Tum Challenge 

The song Tum Tum is one of the latest sensations this month, with various stars including Madhuri Dixit and Vidya Balan jumping on the bandwagon dancing to it. The foot-tapping number is from the movie Enemy and was released in 2021.


6. The Kardashians 

If you are aware of The Kardashians, you know that they are always making headlines. Instagram is flooded with people mimicking them. This month, the audio, "Oh my god it's perfect" is all over Instagram. People are using it on their Reels for mostly displaying their own products. 


7. Big Boys

It's Cuffing Season and all we need is a big boy -- the song which was sung by SZA on Saturday Night Live. After the song went viral, people posted Reels with their favourite heroes or cinema stars on this song. By the way, another of SZA's songs, Kill Bill, which has the lyrics, 'I might kill my ex', is also trending on Instagram.
