Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ overtakes ‘Gangnam Style’ to become the most viewed YouTube video

By : |July 12, 2017 0

Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ has overtaken K-pop’s viral sensation Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ for the title of YouTube’s most watched video of all time. Gangnam style held the record for the most viewed YouTube video after surpassing Justin Beiber’s “Baby” in 2012 and held the record for five years.

‘See You Again’ featuring Charlie Puth, which also served as a tribute video for the late Paul Walker hit nearly 2.9 billion views on YouTube on Tuesday morning, taking the top spot for most viewed video from Psy. The video was released in April 2015. It averaged over three million views per day, just this year alone.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa said in a statement,”I’m super excited and grateful to all those who supported the song and video on YouTube and happy to inspire and impact so many lives.” Charlie Puth too tweeted to commemorate the occasion,”I remember when I signed up for YouTube in 2007 and had hopes of uploading a video and it reaching 10,000 views. Now a decade later it feels incredible to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube.”

Gangnam Style held the record for the most watched video on YouTube for nearly a decade and became the first video to cross 1 billion views just a few months after it was released on July 15, 2012. But don’t expect ‘See You Again’ to hold this record for the same time since Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ ft Daddy Yankee (the Spanish version without Justin Beiber ) has already racked up more than 2.5 billion views in just five months and seems poised to snag the crown in short time.
