QUOTE
The official music video for Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's 'See You Again' became the most watched YouTube video of all time Tuesday.

The song's clip has now been viewed 2,895,605,881 times, while previous record holder PSY's Gangnam Style is just below at 2,894,494,866 views.

Korean pop hit Gangnam Style was uploaded to YouTube almost five years ago on July 15, 2012, and has maintained the title of the most watched video since that time.

The See You Again song was written as a tribute to late actor Paul Walker, and then used in the Fast and Furious 7 movie soundtrack. Walker died in a car accident during the film's production.

Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's video reached one billion views in six month, passing the two billion mark last September.

According to calculations, in terms of time, See You Again has been streamed for more than 21,000 years collectively.

Meanwhile, Luis Fonsi's summer hit Despacito has been viewed more than 2.5 billion times in just six months, and is unlikely to slow down, which is why some say that See You Again's reign as the most watched video could be short-lived.


I didn't see that coming!

'Despacito' obviously coming to surpass that in a month or two.

I thought 'Despacito' had overtaken when I saw this thread title, although I was aware 'See You Again' had been viewed a similar amount too.

I remember when 'Bad Romance' overtook Charlie Bit My Finger to be the highest viewed YouTube video and naively viewing 'Bad Romance' so many times a day when Justin Bieber's 'Baby' was close to overtaking! :') Crazy to think how relatively easy it is to get up to and passed the 1 billion mark nowadays.

I really really don't understand why 'See You Again' of all songs is the one to overtake it. Let 'Despacito' leapfrog it ASAP please ~

Amazing really that PSY held on for this long though!

BOO at See You Again overtaking the iconic Gangnam Style. sleep.gif baffling that it's done so well on YT really for such an average song.

At least Despacito will be the first to pass 3 billion.

See You Again is terrible, not to sound insensitive but it's mostly just the circumstances surrounding the song because Paul Walker died that it's so popular and got all the attention it did :/ I still love Gangnam Style lmao, it's a bop.

See You Again is trash used to capitalize on a talented man's death.

Despacito will be MILES ahead of See You Again by the end of the summer, so no worry.

'See You Again' doesn't even feel much of a fondly remembered big hit for it, at least not to get an accolade like this.

I remember being baffled when 'See You Again' passed 1 billion views so quick, never mind being the most viewed of all time! It's so odd, especially when the video itself isn't memorable at all (as far as I remember haha). I really thought 'Gangnam Style' was unbeatable, its a shame because it was such a cultural phenomenon and people were actually watching for the video, rather than 'See You Again' or 'Desapcito'. Can't believe the latter has so many views so quickly either, will obviously overtake soon!

Oh I'm not surprised at all at 'Despacito', Latin pop songs seem to rack up crazy views just from Central/South America, that coupled with 'Despacito' also becoming a huge hit everywhere else was an obvious recipe for it to challenge PSY.

It's not the only latin pop song to pass a billion views either, there's quite a few. Notably Enrique Iglesias' 'Bailando (Spanish Version)' has over 2 billion views.

CHARLIE PUTH IMPACT *.

Seriously though, crap song - shame to see it overtake, as Froot said, such a cultural phenomenon as it doesn't even feel like something that was hugely impactful to me.

It could actually come pretty close. See You Again's views in the midst of this news are going up again, and might persist, especially since it's getting close to 3 billion itself.

I find it quite baffling that See You Again has generated that many views! drama.gif The dominance of Latin songs is interesting to see. Quite surprised that Rihanna only has 1 video to exceed 1 billion (Diamonds)!
