One last ride. Wiz Khalifa paid tribute to the late Paul Walker with his new Furious 7 music video for the single “See You Again.”
A cut off of the Furious 7 soundtrack, “See You Again” features footage from the Fast & Furious movies juxtaposed with shots of Khalifa and his collaborator Charlie Puth.
The emotional video opens with the “Young, Wild & Free” rapper, 27, walking along a street in the hills at sunset as Puth, 23, plays the piano. Walker enters the shot to the sounds of YouTube sensation Puth crooning, “It’s been a long day without you my friend / And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again / We’ve come a long way from where we began / Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again / When I see you again.”
The late actor, who died in the midst of Furious 7 filming in November 2013 at the age of 40, is shown in footage from the latest installment, as well as that of previous Fast & Furious flicks from the past 14 years.
Walker played LAPD detective Brian O’Conner in the beloved franchise, making his final appearance in this past weekend’s record-breaking blockbuster release. He is featured in racing scenes, shown kissing Jordana Brewster, who played his on-screen love Mia Toretto, and palling around with costars like Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Ludacris.
Khalifa enters the track, rhyming, “How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got? / Everything I went through you were standing there by my side / And now you gonna be with me for the last ride.”
Puth nodded to Walker on Twitter upon the video’s release, writing in the early hours of Monday, April 6, “7 million hits in 2 hours. I know you are watching down on all of us Paul, the whole world is thinking of you.”
