Gangnam Style is no Longer the Most Played YouTube Video

Psy’s Gangnam Style is not the most-watched video on YouTube.

The South Korean megahit had been the site’s most-played video throughout the previous five years.

The strange video turned out to be popular to the point that it “broke” YouTube’s play counter, surpassing the most extreme conceivable number of views (2,147,483,647), and compelling the company to revise its code.

But the tune has now been surpassed by another music video – Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s See You Again.

The melody has now been gushed 2,895,373,709 times; beating Psy’s present check of 2,894,426,475 views.

Including it up, that implies See You Again has been gushed for an aggregate of 21,759 years. If one individual was to tune in to each of those streams sequentially, they’d need to have begun amid the frigid pinnacle of the last Ice Age.

“I joined YouTube in 2007 hoping to make a video that would reach 10,000 views,” wrote Charlie Puth on Twitter. “Just heard about See You Again… Wow.”

The tune was composed for the Furious 7, playing over the end attributes in tribute to the performing artist Paul Walker, who died in an auto crash before the film was finished.

With its audaciously nostalgic verses (“it’s been a long day without you my friend/ And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again”), See You Again has turned out to be a standout amongst the most asked for pop tunes at funerals in the UK.

It was the top of the line melody worldwide in 2015, and got best tune selections at both the Grammys and the Oscars.
