See You Again overtakes Gangnam Style as most watched YouTube video

Psy’s Gangnam Style is no longer the most-watched video on YouTube, the BBC reports.

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 (2,147,483,647), and forcing the company to rewrite its code.

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

The heart-wrenching ballad has now been streamed 2,895,373,709 times; beating Psy’s current count of 2,894,426,475 views.

The video reached 1 billion views in six months, and hit 2 billion last September.
