Billboard reports that the Furious 7 song titled “See You Again” has surpassed Psy’s “Gangnam Style” as the most most-watched video on YouTube.
Performed by Wiz Khalifa and featuring Charlie Puth, the music video currently has 2,905,415,941 views and counting. Written as a tribute to the late Paul Walker, the song accompanied the tear-jerking closing moments of Furious 7 as the series retired Walker’s character named Brian O’Connor.
Puth reacted to the news in a post on his official Twitter account.
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.

Of course, Psy’s “Gangnam Style” still holds the honor of being the first video to reach one billion views and the accumulated views of both videos forced YouTube to rewrite its code to increase the number of maximum views.
