Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's collaborative track See You Again has surpassed one billion views on YouTube. The song, which featured on the Furious 7 soundtrack and was dedicated to the late Paul Walker, celebrated the milestone just six months after it was posted on the video-sharing website.
Released in March to coincide with the release of the latest instalment of Fast and Furious, the song features vocals from newcomer Puth and Black and Yellow hitmaker Khalifa. The video, directed by Marc Klasfeld, shows Khalifa walking down a highway road at sunset while Puth is shown singing the chorus whilst sitting at, and playing, a piano located between two cars. The duo's scenes are interspersed with footage from Furious 7.
Not only is the four-minute music video the fastest to ever achieve the landmark, it is also the first rap video to ever reach 1 billion views on YouTube. Taking to twitter, Puth thanked his fans for their continued support.
"See You Again is not only the first rap video to hit a billion views but is also the fastest video to hit a billion on YouTube. Wow. Thank u," the singer wrote.
In April, the track broke two Spotify records after raking in 4.2 million streams in one day. It also earned the most streams in week with 21.9 million listens. It added on its success days later when it climbed up the charts to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart to eventually dethrone Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk, which had reigned for an impressive 14 weeks. It had debuted at number 100.
"It's such a meaningful song, so I tried to put all those things together," Khalifa said at the time. "Charlie's vocals are amazing, so it all came together and made sense."
See You Again is now the tenth most-viewed music video in YouTube history. Psy's Gangnam Style remains at the top with more than 2.4 billion plays since July 2012.
