Move Over Gangnam Style, This Is YouTube's Most Played Song

With the recent news, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth still can't believe that their "See you again" song for Paul Walker has overtaken "Gangnam Style". Many YouTube users are asking Psy's fans to get more likes for the video so that it can beat the American music video on YouTube.

But, to put "See You Again's" accomplishment into a little more perspective, if you were to try to watch that video 2.896 billion times consecutively, it would take you approximately 21,759 years.

The emotional song was penned for the "Furious 7" soundtrack, in honour of one of the franchise's leading men, Paul Walker, after he and a friend tragically died in a vehicle crash back in 2013.

Gangnam Style was released in 2012 and it became so popular that it broke the YouTube counter of the maximum number of views (2,147,483,647) and YouTube had to rewrite the code.

The single "See You Again" is very catchy but the video didn't have the same viral hit sensation as PSY's "Gangnam" style. "Now a decade later, it feels incredibly to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube".

The Pittsburgh native collaborated with Charlie Puth on "See You Again" for the "Furious 7" soundtrack.

Pop music videos generally top the list of most viewed YouTube videos, but only two have ever exceeded from than 2.8 billion views.

While See You Again arguably lacks the earworm hooks of the K-pop pop cultural phenomenon, it's fame is arguably buoyed by its tie-in status to the 2015 film Furious 7, the seventh of the series' eight commercially successful instalments.

But "See You Again" might not reign supreme for long. Psy's youtube channel, "officialpsy" has recently reached 10 million subscribers.

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".

Bieber's track now resides in third place with around 2.63 billion views followed by "Uptown Funk" from Mark Ronson ft.
