PSY's uber-successful "Gangnam Style" MV has ruled the YouTube world ever since it was released back in 2012, quickly becoming the most-viewed video of all time with nearly 2.9 billion views. Until now that is.

Just yesterday, the rapper has been overtaken by Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" music video, which was released in 2015 and as gathered views faster than even "Gangnam Style." At the time of writing, "Gangnam Style" is still the 2nd most-viewed YouTube video ever with 2.895 billion views, while "See You Again" has just crossed the 2.9 billion mark.

Congrats to Wiz Khalifa for achieving this huge milestone on YouTube and doing what many thought was impossible!
