What Video Just Surpassed ‘Gangnam Style’ as Most-Viewed Ever?
Psy's "Gangnam Style" has finally fallen out of fashion — a new video now officially claims the title of most-viewed ever.
Today (July 12), Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again" officially usurped the top spot with just a little bit more than 2.9 billion views. Part of the Fate of the Furious soundtrack, the video dropped a little more than two years ago and features some of the final footage the late Paul Walker recorded.
"See You Again" averages about three-million views a day, according to YouTube.
"I'm super excited and grateful to everyone who supported the song and video on YouTube, and happy to inspire and impact so many lives," rapper Khalifa said in a statement. And Puth echoed the sentiment.
"I remember when I signed up for YouTube in 2007 and had hopes of uploading a video and it reaching 10,000 views," Puth said. "Now a decade later, it feels incredible to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube."
"Gangnam Style," which dropped in 2012, stole the title of most-viewed from Justin Bieber's "Baby" that same year. It currently boasts a little more than 2.8 billion views.
