Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” Passes PSY’s “Gangnam Style” as Most Viewed Video on YouTube
Written by stylemonument on July 12, 2017
Wiz Khalifa‘s emotionally charged anthem, “See You Again,” featuring Charlie Puth is now the most watched video on YouTube. The song, which belongs to the Furious 7 soundtrack, recently overtook PSY’s “Gangnam Style“ for the top spot on the video sharing platform. “Gangnam Style” currently has 2,894,635,846 views, while “See You Again” has 2,896,029,111 — nearly a 1.5 million view difference.
After debuting on YouTube in April 2012, “Gangnam Style” was lauded in the U.S. for its infectious dance and energetic beat. Within a few months, the K-pop hit had become the most watched video on YouTube, breaking a Guinness World Record while surpassing Justin Bieber‘s “Baby” — it was a viral smash. “See You Again” was less of a crossover sensation. Uploaded in April 2015, Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” struck a chord with listeners who enjoyed the Fast and Furious franchise, and those still grieving over the death of one of the movie’s main characters, Paul Walker.
