Wiz Khalifa's music video for "See You Again," featuring Charlie Puth, has surpassed Psy's "Gangnam Style" as the most-watched video on YouTube.
"See You Again" has amassed close to 2.896 billion views, only slightly ahead of "Gangnam Style's" 2.895 billion views.
Released in April 2015, "See You Again" is a part of the soundtrack to Furious 7 and acts as a tribute to late Fast and the Furious franchise star Paul Walker. The clip features clips of Walker from throughout his time starring in the series.
"Gangnam Style" released in July 2012, was the first video on YouTube to hit one billion views and was responsible YouTube to upgrading its views counter to accommodate the higher numbers.
