Wiz Khalifa's “See You Again” is many things: a smash hit, a brilliant piece of corporate synergy, true art, a touching tribute to a fallen friend. And as of today, it's something else: A record-setting YouTube hit.

The song had already set a single-song streaming record on Spotify (recently usurped by Justin Bieber's “What Do You Mean) and became one of the most successful rap songs of all time, per the Billboard charts. Now, it's joined an elite club: On Friday, “See You Again” passed the billion-view mark on YouTube.

The success of the heartfelt tribute to Paul Walker shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. It’s a brilliant song.
