With it closing in on three billion views, odds are you’ve seen the Wiz Khalifa video for See You Again.

What others have viewed only on YouTube can be seen in person when the rapper comes to Harris Park on Thursday to perform as part of the Rock the Park lineup.

The track is now the most-watched YouTube video of all time. As of Tuesday, it had a staggering 2.897 billion views on the video-sharing site, making it more popular than Psy’s 2012 novelty tune Gangnam Style, which has about two million fewer views and was the top clip for five years.

Stratford’s own Justin Bieber holds the third slot with Sorry, a distant 250 million fewer views behind the top clip.

See You Again features Khalifi and Charlie Puth. It was released in 2015 as a goodbye to late Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker and his character Brian O’Conner. Walker died in a car crash two years earlier, but appeared posthumously in Furious 7.

Wiz Khalifa said in a statement he’s happy the song has been able to “inspire and impact so many lives.”

Thursday is Rock the Park’s hip-hop-themed evening, with Khalifa headlining.

The opening acts are Casper the Ghost, DJ Mustard and Fetty Wap featuring Monty.

Tickets are still available.
