Wiz Khalifa billion views

Wiz Khalifa has had a pretty good week.

First he has allededly rekindled his relationship with former partner Amber Rose.

Now the rapper has laid claim to an impressive piece of YouTube history, reports Yahoo.

Producer Charlie Puth announced in a tweet Wednesday that Wiz’s smash hit “See You Again” is the 10th most viewed YouTube video ever and fastest to reach one billion views.

That also makes it the first rap video to break one billion. Bravo, Wiz.

According to the Verge, for ten years, only two videos — the aforementioned “Gangnam Style” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” — were able to rack up more than a billion views. But both took very different routes to YouTube’s mountaintop.
