VEVO’s video view counts represent the only official metric across the digital landscape, including online and mobile views as well as those of syndication partner sites like AOL, Facebook, Yahoo! Music, and YouTube. Videos that have been “CERTIFIED” by VEVO have achieved a similar milestone to that of a Gold and Platinum album.
VEVO’s CERTIFIED statue signifies the visceral essence of music with a chiseled base and outstretched hand shaping a “V,” the universal music fan sign of approval. Its base is adorned with the Official VEVO CERTIFIED Seal on both sides, the VEVO logo on the back, and the artist’s accreditation on the front. It was sculpted by Matt Ramieri of the Florida-based company Inspired Bronze.
