History!! Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ Reaches 1 Billion Views on YouTube

Wiz Khalifa see you again

Wiz Khalifa

Millions of people bought Wiz Khalifa’s chart-topper “See You Again,” and now one billion people have watched the video.

The rapper has pulled off a staggering feat, becoming the first hip-hop artist to reach 1 billion views on YouTube (via HHNM). “See You Again” is also the 10th most-viewed video on YouTube, following hits like Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”

While the numbers are impressive, Wiz still has a way to go before he catches up to Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” which has 1.2 billion views, and PSY’s 2 billion juggernaut “Gangnam Style.”

The Charlie Puth-assisted song off the Furious 7 soundtrack topped the charts for 12 non-consecutive weeks, tying Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” for the longest-running No. 1 rap song in the country.
