First heard on Wiz Khalifa’s UK #1 hit ‘See You Again,’ taken from the Fast & Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the track – written and produced by Puth – has been a worldwide success. Soaring to the iTunes top spot in 101 countries, the single spent two consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK’s Official Charts and has now surpassed 1.5 billion views on YouTube making it their most watched music video of 2015 in the UK above Adele and Taylor Swift.
