“See You Again” features Charles Puth on vocals. In an interview, Wiz Khalifa has said that the song was originally composed by Puth in the memory of a friend who had also died in a car accident. Khalifa then collaborated with him to lend it a tune.
Khalifa said whole objective behind creating this song was to make something that everyone could connect with. It has a very personal touch and has something that everyone can connect to. The song is a celebration of life.
The Fast and Furious 7 song has become the fastest selling track of this year beating Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” for the film Fifty Shades of Grey. This song is Wiz Khalifa’s second time in the top of the Official Singles Chart. He had reached the top in 2012 when he overthrew Maroon 5’s “Payphone.”
The tribute song has smashed records in terms of streaming as well. It again beat Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” to become highest streamed song with 4 million streams only a week after it was released online.
Apart from all these, the orange Supra that Paul Walker’s Brain O’Conner drove in the Fast and Furious movies, will be auctioned off on 12th May and is expected to fetch between $150,000 and $200,000.
