Song tribute to Paul Walker tops UK chart
AMERICAN rapper Wiz Khalifa has scored the fastest-selling single of the year as his tribute to actor Paul Walker, See You Again, climbed 21 places to top the British chart, the Official Charts Company said on Sunday.
Featuring Charlie Puth, the song is on the soundtrack of the movie Fast & Furious 7 and pays tribute to cast member Walker, who died in November 2013.
Fast & Furious 7 surged ahead of its North American box-office competition for a third straight week, taking in an estimated US$29 million (S$39 million) to hit US$1 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
