The result of his collaboration with Wiz Khalifa gives birth to the moving “See You Again” appearing on the tracklist of the soundtrack of the seventh feature film of the franchise ‘Fast and Furious’. Paying homage to the deceased Paul Walker, emblematic actor, the title broke many records! No less than 21 million copies of the single have been sold around the world, allowing the title to win the title of best-selling single during the 21st century. Dizzying figures finally surpassed two years later by Luis Fonsi and his famous “Despacito” then by Ed Sheeran with “Shape of You” and Lil Nas X with “Old Town Road”. Nevertheless, the clip of “See You Again” continues to squat the second step of the podium of the most viewed videos on YouTube, accumulating nearly 6 billion views!
