Back in 2015 this was one of the most loved hit singles of all time, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again” which was the soundtrack for the block buster “Fast and Furious 7” and also a tribute to Paul Walker, who tragically died in November 2013 in a fatal car accident.
“See You Again” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, staying there for over 12 weeks, and eventually going eight-times Platinum with it’s music video unveiled in April of 2015, became the first hip-hop video to hit one billion views on YouTube.
It just broke another record as it hits 2,902,764,763 views and counting making it the most-viewed YouTube video of all time, this comes in after it surpassed the former leader PSY’s “Gangnam Style” to take the top spot.
Charlie Puth took to his social media page to share the great news with his fans in a post saying.
For the record, I joined @YouTube in 2007 hoping to make a video that would reach 10,000 views. Just heard about See You Again…wow.
