Wiz Khalifa's 'See You Again' overtakes 'Gangnam Style' as most watched on Youtube

Psy's Gangnam Style is no longer the most-watched video on YouTube. 
     
The South Korean megahit had been the site's most-played clip for the last five years. 
     
The surreal video became so popular that it "broke" YouTube's play counter, exceeding the maximum possible number of views and forcing the company to rewrite its code. 
     
The song has now been overtaken by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's See You Again that has amassed more than 2.898 billion views on Tuesday.
     
The song was written for the action movie Furious 7, playing over the closing credits in tribute to late actor Paul Walker, who died in a car crash before the film was completed.
     
See You Again has become one of the most frequently requested pop songs at funerals in the UK.
     
It was the best-selling song worldwide in 2015, and received best song nominations at both the Grammys and the Oscars.
