Psy 'Gangnam Style'

The time has come for Psy to make way for a new champion.

2012 was a pretty memorable year. Whilst Olympic fever swept the nation, a little song you may have heard of called 'Gangnam Style' was released.

5 years and a lot of iconic dancing later, Psy's monster track was sitting right at the top of YouTube's 'Most Viewed Videos Of All Time' list with 2.896 billion views (the population of the entire world is 7.347 billion btw)!

But whilst the Korean hit is still as catchy as ever, it has finally been overtaken in the YouTube rankings for the first time in years and it's another music video that has taken the title.

Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's emotional track 'See You Again', which was part of the 'Furious 7' soundtrack and released as a tribute to the series' late star Paul Walker, has now been named the most viewed video EVER with 2.903 billion views.

Considering that the video was only released back in 2015, it's pretty amazing to have amassed that amount of views in only two years, compared to Gangnam Style's 5 years.

But whilst Charlie and Wiz can celebrate for now, their party may be short lived as there's another video quickly picking up YouTube views that has only been out for 7 months. Any guesses as to which one?

Yep, 'Despacito'!

The infectious song that's loved across the planet has picked up a MASSIVE 2.483 billion views...ALREADY! The power of 'Despacito' is real people and the video is the original song, not the remix with Justin Bieber!
