Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” Wins Favorite Collaboration at 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards
Wiz Khalifa is at the head of the class. The Pittsburgh rapper snagged yet another award for his 2015 smash single "See You Again," this time at the 2016 Kids' Choice Awards. Khalifa and Charlie Puth, who sings the hook to the rap ballad, took home orange blimps for Favorite Collaboration at the live show Saturday (March 12).
Wiz and Charlie also performed "See You Again" during the show to incredible fanfare. Puth began his performance with his own single "One Call Away" and then was joined on stage by Khalifa man for the chart-topping rap ballad.
As the theme song for 2015's Furious 7 and musical eulogy to the late actor Paul Walker, "See You Again" has been racking up awards and breaking rap barriers since its release last March. The song shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 a month after it dropped, the video surpassed 1 billion videos on YouTube and it won Best Song at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards, but it was suspiciously snubbed for an Academy Award nomination. Addressing the nomination miss, Wiz nonchalantly told Billboard, “I don’t really get into the political stuff. I know there’s a lot to do with who does get nominated and who doesn’t. It’s not always just the music. I’m focused on the music, so I’m doing my part.”
