YouTube has awarded popstar Chris Brown with a Diamond Play Botton for reaching 10 million followers on his channel.
The Diamond Play Button which is the highest award on YouTube is given to those who surpass the 10 million subscribers mark.
Other awards given out include the Gold Play Button for YouTubers with 1million subscribers and the Silver Play Button for those who surpass the 100 000 mark.
The excited singer shared the letter sent to him by the CEO of YouTube on IG.
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. Sincerely, CEO, YouTube
