The Diamond play button is the highest award on youtube which is usually given to those who surpass the 10 million subscribers mark.
Other awars given out by youtube include the Gold play button for youtubers with one million subscribers and Silver play button for those who surpass the 100 000 mark.
The excited singer quikly shared the letter sent to him by the CEO of Youtube on IG.
Dear Chris Brown,
At a hundred thousand, we though: 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 are scratching our heads. How the heck did you do that? 10 million people 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 touch a nerve in the world, and you have 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 apprecaition, and our respect for what you have accomplished.
You amaze us and inspire us everyday. Keep it coming.
