There is officially a new video topping the most watched list on YouTube. With 2,896,928,213 views and counting, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth should be very proud.

"I remember when I signed up for YouTube in 2007 and had hopes of uploading a video and it reaching 10,000 views," Puth said in a statement. "Now a decade later, it feels incredible to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube."

The video was created years ago and uploaded to YouTube on April 6, 2015. Watch it below to see the full video.

The video was created as a tribute to the late Paul Walker, who tragically died young after a horrific car crash. He was one of the main actors in the Fast and Furious movies and the music video was mostly produced in memory of Paul.

"This was a labor of love. It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real," Vin Diesel told fans at a Furious 7 screening. "When the tragedy happened I lost my best friend, I lost my brother. We made this movie from our hearts and know that this is our gift to you and more importantly, to my brother."
