Chris Brown continues to rack up the accolades this time getting the YouTube Diamond Play Button award.
The “New Flames” singer confirmed the news on his Instagram page last night while showing off his award for hitting 10 million subscribers on his official YouTube channel. The Diamond Play Button is the highest award given out by YouTube and you can bet that only a handful of artists has ever received the award like Rihanna who has 24 million subscribers, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj has 12 million, and Katy Perry and Eminem with 22 million.
“At one million, we thought: Wow, this creator’s got something pretty awesome going on,” YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a letter to Chris Brown. “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.”
Chris Browb also shares a photo of the letter that he received from YouTube.
