Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ Breaks Most Watched Video Record on YouTube

Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s hit single “See You Again” has been dubbed the most-watched video of all time on YouTube. With 2.894 billion views, the video featuring the artists and clips from the film Furious 7, “See You Again” dethrones Psy’s smash hit “Gangnam Style,” who took the world by storm back in 2012.

According to Forbes, a representative for the video-sharing site says that “See You Again” is pulling in clicks “left and right,” despite the fact that the song has been out for almost two and a half years. Since its release, the song has continued to receive views every day throughout 2017. The track featured on the seventh installation of the Fast and the Furious saga was an instant hit going no. 1 on the charts and tied for longest-leading rap no.1 song on the Billboard Hot 100.

Both Wiz and the “We Don’t Talk Anymore” singer shared their excitement about the gigantic achievement.

“I remember when I signed up for YouTube in 2007 and had hopes of uploading a video and it reaching 10,000 views,” Puth said in a statement per CNN. “Now a decade later, it feels incredible to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube.”

“I’m super excited and grateful to everyone who supported the song and video on YouTube, and happy to inspire and impact so many lives,” the “Black and Yellow” rapper said. Wiz also took to Instagram to thank fans for their love and support.

The touching video directed by Marc Klasfeld paid homage to the star of Fast and the Furious, Paul Walker, whose untimely death occurred during the filming of the Furious 7. Throughout the video, there are mixed scenes of Walker with fellow cast mates and friend Vin Diesel. The end of the video, which features both Walker and Diesel driving alongside each other, pans into the sky with a dedication to the late actor. Both the video and track served as a ballad for fans and cast members to mourn the unfortunate death of Paul Walker.
