It will be fair to say Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Putt are the new kings of YouTube as their duo, Fast and Furious 7 homage, See You Again, has overtaken Psy’s Gangnam Style for the title of YouTube’s most-watched video ever. Yes! Like ever in YouTube’s history.
The music video, which serves as a tribute for the late Paul Walker with various scenes from his role in the Fast and the Furious movies, has garnered more than 2,909,210,181 views. The video was released in April of 2015 and it also encourages hope.
Gangnam Style held the title of most-watched video on the service for nearly half a decade, being the first video to skyrocket past one billion views just a few months after it was released on July 15, 2012.
Sadly Wiz Khalifa won’t hold this record for quite the same time or even long enough, as Luis Fonsi’s Despacito (not the version with Bieber) has racked up nearly 2.6 billion views in just five months and seems poised to overtake See You Again in short order.
Funny how I don’t even know what they were saying, but I’m in love with the song….
YouTube announced recently that it has 1.5 billion monthly logged-in users watching on average more than one hour per day of video on mobile alone and we are glad to be on that list…lol….
Wiz took to Instagram to thank his fans for this great achievement.
