Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ Music Video Has Been Viewed More Than One Billion Times
Until this week, no hip-hop video in music history has surpassed the one billion viewers mark in YouTube.
So send your congratulations to Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth. “See You Again,” their tear-jerking hip-hop ballad to Paul Walker from the Furious 7 soundtrack (and consequently, the track that played at too many funerals this summer), is now the 10th most watched music video on YouTube with 1,009,829,612 views and counting (as of 5:30 p.m. EST on Oct. 9, 2015).
The video, released in April, successfully surpassed OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” this week to nab the 10th spot behind Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” music video.
Psy’s “Gangnam Style” still leads the whole pack, which includes Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” by at least 1 billion, with 2.4 billion views to date.
