The video features on the Furious 7 soundtrack, and features footage from all the films in the franchise, plus Walker's close moments with the cast. It racked up a whopping 7 million hits in two hours, and was viewed 28 million times on Diesel's Facebook page.

Universal Pictures' president of music Mike Knoblock explained why they chose that song:

“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.”

Paul Walker tragically died in a car crash in the middle of filming Furious 7. The movie opened this weekend, and brought in a record-breaking $143.6m (£96.1m) - making it the 9th largest opening weekend of all time, and the top earning non-superhero movie of all time.
