Wiz Khalifa Now Has the Most-Watched Video on YouTube Ever

Wiz Khalifa Now Has the Most-Watched Video on YouTube Ever

Whizzing past the competition!

Published July 11, 2017

If you thought you’d seen the last of Wiz Khalifa’s Charlie Puth-assisted “See You Again” single in 2015, a tribute to fallen film star Paul Walker, who is best known from the Fast and Furious movie franchise, you were terribly wrong.

In fact, two years after its release, it’s now the first visual leading YouTube’s most-viewed videos ever.

One-upping the viral “Gangnam Style” dance sensation of 2012, Wiz zipped past the 2012 single’s five-year YouTube streak with nearly 3 billion views on Tuesday (July 11). The nearly four-minute long video and song is a heartfelt ode to Walker, featuring several pivotal Fast and Furious moments from his very first appearance in 2001 up until 2015’s Furious 7, the last we’d unfortunately be able to see of him in the film series.  

"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," Khalifa said in a statement.

Puth also shared his gratitude for the new digital honor, tweeting his thanks to Twitter and remembering his first days as a YouTube member.
