Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth Earn Golden Globe Nomination for 'See You Again'
Wiz Khalifa’s mega hit “See You Again” just earned the rapper and collaborator Charlie Puth a Golden Globe nomination.
The Paul Walker tribute, which was also featured on the soundtrack for Furious 7, is nominated for Best Original Song. Wiz and Puth’s song is up against Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” (50 Shades of Grey), Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall” (Spectre), Brian Wilson’s “One of a Kind” (Love & Mercy) and David Lang’s “Simple Song #3” (Youth).
Following its release back in March, “See You Again” stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks, and later became the first hip-hop video on YouTube to surpass one billion views.
As previously reported, Wiz is currently prepping the release of his forthcoming album, Rolling Papers 2, which will drop in 2016.
Earlier this year, Wiz hinted at the release of a new album, a sequel to 2011's Rolling Papers, which spawned the chart-topping hit, “Black and Yellow.” He first announced Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album back in May via Twitter. His most recent album, Blacc Hollywood, was released in 2014 and spawned fan favorites including “We Dem Boyz,” “You and Your Friends,” “Promises,” “So High” and “Staying Out All Night.”
The “Burn Slow” rapper is also slated to drop his Cabin Fever 3 mixtape. He first made mention of the release in one of the latest editions of his DayToday vlog. The 11-track project will include features from the likes of Juicy J, K Camp, Curren$y, frequent mixtape collaborator Chevy Woods, Yo Gotti and others.
The 73rd Golden Globe Awards are slated to air live on Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
