Wiz Khalifa's Paul Walker Tribute 'See You Again' Racing To No.1
The rapper's Paul Walker tribute leads the charge in this week's Official Chart Update...
Wiz Khalifa is on course to grab his first ever UK No.1 hit as a solo artist this weekend with his Fast & Furious 7 track 'See You Again' Ft. Charlie Puth.
It's video, which is a touching tribute to the last Fast star Paul Walker and at present has been viewed on YouTube over 45 million times, climbs 21 places to the top of this week's Official Chart Update.
Speaking of the song, Universal Pictures' president of music Mike Knoblock said: “Once it was clear that that’s the [film’s] structure - the cast saying goodbye to Paul’s character - we put it out to writers that the song had to be earnest and celebratory. We knew we didn’t want people leaving the theatre sad.”
Wiz last found himself at the top of the UK charts featuring on Maroon 5's 'Payphone' and he reached No.1 on will.i.am's 'Feelin Myself' while his highest UK solo chart position to date is No.5 with 'Black And Yellow'.
Elsewhere in the midweek update, OMI challenges Wiz, climbing 25 places to No.2 with 'Cheerleader' while Dr Kucho and Gregor Salto enter at No.3 with 'Can't Stop Playing' Ft. Ane Brun.
...and, climbing one spot into the Top 10, is Kygo with 'Firestone' Ft. Conrad Sewell.
