Up until this weekend, “See You Again” by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa had been the most watched YouTube music video of all-time (“Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and featuring Justin Bieber just took over that distinction). The emotional ballad from the soundtrack of the 7th movie of the Fast And The Furious series became “that song” that brought closure after losing someone special and was inspired by the death of Paul Walker not only in the film but also in real life. So now as the DVD release of “The Fate Of The Furious 8” comes out, will there be any songs featured in the film that get a similar reaction? Let’s showcase the top three songs from the soundtrack:
“HEY MA” Pitbull, J Balvin, and Camila Cabello
From the opening credits of the film set in Havana, Cuba, comes a smoking hot Latin club banger. It was the first major American film to shoot in Cuba since the 1960’s! The triple team Latin all-star roster of Mr. Worldwide, Pitbull, Colombian Reggaeton singer, J Balvin, and the Cuban-American former member of Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello come together for the album’s biggest hit. The official music video is nearing TWO HUNDRED MILLION hits as of August 6th, 2017. The scene accompanied Vin Diesel’s heart-stopping street race in Havana.
“GOOD LIFE” G-EAZY and KEHLANI
Like “Hey Ma”, a collaboration effort between two of the hottest rising stars in music today. Rapper G-Eazy and pop singer, Kehlani create a song that comes closest to the sentiment of “See You Again”. The music video focuses on the chemistry between Dom’s crew. This is the second collaboration between G-Eazy and Kehlani as they recorded “Everything Will Be Okay” in 2015 on his third album.
“GANG UP” Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, and PnB Rock
What’s better than a hot hip hop track by one of the biggest rappers in the game? How about featuring FOUR rappers! Young Thug, 2 Chainz, and Wiz Khalifa have global name recognition but a newbie, PnB Rock joins the instant smash track that featured a hypnotic Trap beat. PnB has been named part of XXL Magazine’s “Freshman Class”. This is the fifth single from the soundtrack album.
