Pop superstar Chris Brown has been awarded with a Diamond Play Button as he recently attained 10 million followers on his YouTube channel.
The Diamond Play Button is the highest award on YouTube and it is given to a YouTuber that surpasses the 10 million subscribers mark. Other awards include the Gold Play Button for YouTubers who surpass the 1 million mark and the Silver Play Button for YouTubers who surpass the 100,000 mark. However, one YouTuber, PewDiePie was given a ruby trophy in the shape of his channel’s logo for attaining 50 million subscribers.
Chris Brown shared a photo of the letter sent to him by the CEO of YouTube on his Instagram page. The letter read:
Dear Chris Brown,
At a hundred thousand, we thought: Not Bad. That’s a healthy new channel
At one million, we thought: Wow, this creator’s got something pretty awesome going on.
But 10 million? At this point we’re scratching our heads. How the heck did you DO that? 10 million subscribers isn’t just a lot of people, it’s more than the entire population of New York City!
The fact is, you’re no longer a great channel. You’re a movement. You’ve clearly touched a nerve in the world, and you’ve found a legion of fans who expect -and receive- great things from you.
We hope you’ll accept this Diamond Play Button as a woefully inadequate token of our appreciation,and our respect for what you’ve accomplished.
You amaze us and inspire us everyday. Keep it coming.
