American rapper Wiz Khalifa has released a mixtape titled 'Big Pimpin’ with 17 songs in collaboration with many artists and singers including Ytiet, a YouTuber from Vietnam who called himself a cow herder and has been known for his simple songs on counting numbers.

Ytiet owns a verified YouTube channel with 328,000 followers.

Titled 'Number song (From 41 to 49),' the song contains a chorus where Ytiet sings simple English lyrics '41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah' with a quite addictive voice.

Meanwhile, Wiz Khalifa sings the two rap verses and a bridge section of the song.

Ytiet uploaded a video in which he sang the counting section for the first time on his blue-tick Instagram on July 17.

The Vietnamese YouTuber then released a remixed version of the song, which he claimed to be produced by infamous producer Retro Messiah, on his YouTube channel on August 2.

The song went viral globally on social media platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber also covered Ytiet’s song and shared it in a recent Instagram story.

Before Bieber, other world famous singers including Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, and Miley Cyrus also shared other counting songs sung by Ytiet.

It remains a mystery that why Ytiet’s number songs became a phenomenon on social media as some Vietnamese viewers commented that the lyrics of the songs were meaningless.

Mixtape is an unofficial album with a unique style, compiling music from multiple sources, that is recorded onto a medium and often released by rappers to entertain fans.

In addition to Ytiet, Khalifa also worked with other singers including Curren$y, Chevy Woods, Narissa, Saxlrose, Bootsyano, Young Deji, and Sosamann for his mixtape 'Big Pimpin.'

Khalifa is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor who has been nominated for a Grammy Award nine times.

The rapper has received many music awards such as BET Awards, Billboard Music Award, and Teen Choice Awards.

He is famous in Vietnam for his song 'See You Again,' the soundtrack of the movie 'Fast & Furious 7.'

The song hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks.
