The music video for Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” featuring Charlie Puth just became the most-viewed YouTube video of all time. The video currently has more than 2,895,915,000 views, pushing it ahead of Psy’s 2012 song “Gangnam Style” which held the record previously.
While “See You Again” doesn’t have the same goofy choreography and catchiness that made “Gangnam Style” a viral hit, it does have a few things going for it. The song was commissioned for the soundtrack of the seventh installment of one of the most popular film franchise in history – Fast & Furious. “See You Again” also serves as a tribute to the late actor Paul Walker; the video is interspersed with Walker’s scenes from the Furious movies and was uploaded in April 2015 following the death of the muscle-car franchise’s star.
Meanwhile, the dance-move spawning, Auto-tuned “Gangnam Style” has notched 2.894 billion views since it was uploaded in July 2012. Trailing more than 250 million views behind it is the video for Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.”
