This video has overtaken Psy's Gangnam Style to become YouTube's 'most viewed'

Yes, that's right. "Gangnam Style" had been the most-watched video on YouTube for five years.

If you recall, the video reached over 1 billion views back in 2015, marking it as the tenth most viewed video on YouTube at the time.

"See You Again" was released in 2015 as a tribute to late "Fast and the Furious" star Paul Walker.

Considering that the video was only released back in 2015, it's pretty awesome to have amassed that amount of views in only two years, compared to Gangnam Style's 5 years.

Move over, Psy! Wiz Khalifa is the new king on YouTube with his hit single "See You Again" setting a new record.

YouTube has a new most-watched video of all time. It had so many views that Google had to rewrite its code for YouTube's views counter, which previously couldn't handle numbers more than 2,147,483,647.

Kirk played the first five holes in 1 over with a birdie on No. 1 and bogeys on Nos. Hopefully I won't need two eagles in the last five holes again to win tomorrow.

The video has almost 2.9 billion views. "'See You Again" averaged over three million views per day in 2017 alone. Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa's mega-hit See You Again has nabbed top place.

"See You Again" has now squeaked ahead by a fairly insignificant million views, but unless people suddenly get hit by a wave of nostalgia for PSY's colourful antics, it's safe to say that the lead will only continue to grow.

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

The tragedy occurred while Furious 7 was still shooting.

"I am super excited and thankful to everyone who supported the song and video on YouTube, and so happy to impact many lives through my music", Khalifa said in a statement. "Sorry" by Justin Bieber (2.63 billion) and Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" (2.55 billion) are third and forth, respectively.
