Wiz Khalifa officially boasts YouTube's second highest viewed music video of all time with his song "See You Again."

The track, featuring singer Charlie Puth, has become the first track since Psy's "Gangnam Style" to hit two billion views.

"See You Again" was released in March 2015 and served as the official song for blockbuster Fast and Furious 7; it featured on the film's soundtrack in tribute to Paul Walker who died in a tragic car accident ahead of its release.


The videos currently trailing Khalifa's include Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk," (1.82 billion) Justin Bieber's "Sorry" (1.79 billion) and Taylor Swift song "Blank Space" (1.75 billion).

Rounding out the top five is "Hello" by Adele which was the lead single taken from her third studio record 25.

Fast 8, the first of a final trilogy of Fast & Furious films, is currently shooting with stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez all returning alongside new additions Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren.
