This is What’s Trending Today...
Five years ago this week, South Korean music artist Psy put his official "Gangnam Style" music video on Youtube.
It went on to become the most-played YouTube video of all time. The quirky music video got more views than YouTube’s maximum possible view count; the company had to change its coding method.
As of Thursday, more than 2.89 billion people had watched it.
But, just days before "Gangnam Style’s" five-year YouTube anniversary, another music video finally passed its view count. Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s video for "See You Again" has now been viewed more than 2.9 billion times.
但就在《江南Style》还有几天便要迎来在YouTube上发布五周年纪念日的时候，另一首音乐MV超过了其播放记录。维兹·卡利法和查理·普斯的MV《See You Again》已经被播放29亿次。
The song "See You Again" was written for the movie "Furious 7." The music video honored "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in late 2013. It was published on YouTube in April 2015.
《See You Again》一歌为电影《速度与激情7》而作。这首MV是为了纪念《速度与激情》系列电影中的影星保罗·沃克，他在2013年底的一次车祸中逝世。该MV于2015年4月发布在YouTube上。
Wiz Khalifa said in a statement that he is happy his song has been able to "inspire and impact so many lives."
Charlie Puth wrote on Twitter that he joined YouTube in 2007. His hope then was to make a video that would get 10,000 views.
Just heard about See You Again...wow, Puth wrote.
普斯写道：“刚刚听说《See You Again》的点击量，天啊！”
Gangnam Style is now the second-most played video ever. Justin Bieber’s "Sorry" is in third place. "Uptown Funk," by Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars, is in fourth place.
In fifth place is this year’s viral hit "Despacito," by Luis Fonsi with Daddy Yankee. The music video was published this January, and has already been played more than 2.5 billion times.
And that’s What’s Trending Today.
