We've come a long way since 'Gangnam Style'

  • Wiz Khalifa Golden GLobes 2016

The South Korean pop singer, Psy, previously held the title for most watched video on YouTube for almost five years straight with his viral dance song, "Gangnam Style" before being dethroned by Wiz. The video has been iconic for YouTube, which got its first billion views for a single video with "Gangnam Style".

The Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth track featured in the movie Furious 7 as a tribute to Paul Walker who had died in a vehicle accident two years prior. After all, his "Gangnam Style" video will always be remembered as the one that actually "broke" YouTube.

Psy's song had been on top for the past five years, taking over from Justin Bieber's "Baby" in November 2012.

While the dance-infused "Gangnam Style" clung to the title for five long years, we can't say we're sorry to see it go. It went on to become the most-viewed YouTube video in history, but it looks like that is no longer the case as Wiz Khalifa has since managed to snag that position.

The Pittsburgh native collaborated with Charlie Puth on "See You Again" for the "Furious 7" soundtrack. Back then, videos on the platform had a maximum possible number of views set at 2,147,483,647. Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa's mega-hit See You Again has nabbed top place.

"See You Again" had been written for Fast and Furious 7 and was made as a tribute to the late Paul Walker.

"I joined YouTube in 2007 hoping to make a video that would reach 10,000 views", wrote Charlie Puth on his official Twitter account.

Bruno Mars' and Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk is fourth, with just over 2.5 billion views.

Wiz Khalifa, the Philly rapper known for the hits "Black and Yellow" and "Work Hard Play Hard", was pleased that the song has been able to "inspire and impact so many lives", AP said.

See You Again is a regularly played ballad at funerals and was the best-selling song globally in 2015.
