San Bruno — Move over, Gangnam Style. YouTube has a new top-viewed video of all time.

Wiz Khalifa's video for See You Again featuring Charlie Puth became the site's most-watched video on Monday and has more than 2.896 billion views as of Tuesday. 

That's about 2 million more than the video for Korean rapper Psy's 2012 smash Gangnam Style, which held the most-viewed title for five years, YouTube said.

Justin Bieber's Sorry sits in third place, more than 250 million views behind the leaders.

Puth reacted with surprise on Twitter , noting that he joined YouTube in 2007 hoping to make a video that would hit 10 000 views. Puth also earned a congratulatory message from YouTube star Tyler Oakley, who called the feat "legendary & epic".

Wiz Khalifa said in a statement that he's happy the song has been able to "inspire and impact so many lives".

See You Again was released in 2015 as a tribute to late Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker.
