A Berklee College of Music graduate is partly responsible for the most-viewed YouTube video of all time. The video surpassed Gangnam Style by a slight (relatively) margin of about 2 million views.

See You Again featured on the soundtrack for the 2015 movie Furious 7, which is part of the Fast and Furious franchise. Gangnam Style, which has dominated the YouTube video leaderboards for the last five years, is out. It went on to become the most-viewed YouTube video in history, but it looks like that is no longer the case as Wiz Khalifa has since managed to snag that position. In one his interviews, Khalifa expressed how grateful he is to all the fans who supported the video, which made it to the top.

"I'll tell you all about it when I see you again" sang Charlie Puth on the Wiz Khalifa mega-hit, "See you again".

Puth previously revealed that he never expected the song, which hit the 2 billion in September 2016, to receive such a positive response when he first wrote the hook. It has since become a highly requested song to be played at funerals and over on the YouTube platform is still pulling in over a million views per day.

Their official "See You Again" video was released on YouTube on April 6, 2015. Luis Fonsi's video for "Despacito" was released in January this year but already has 2.485 billion views.

Responding to the news, Puth took to twitter where he celebrated the milestone and posted, "I joined YouTube in 2007 hoping to make a video that would reach 10,000 views..."

See you later, Psy!

The tragedy occurred while Furious 7 was still shooting.
