Even though YouTube will never forget Gangnam Style; it hit maximum possible views (2,147,483,647) on the platform till YouTube’s limit itself had to be re-coded after all, See You Again’s success is the talk of the town now.
Reports suggest that the Furious 7 tribute to Paul Walker (2015) has earned $2.9m from YouTube and approximately the same amount from 665 million plays on Spotify. The video reached 1 billion views in six months after release and hit 2 billion in September 2016!
