The music critic recommends the album to his loyal followers, who are familiar with Adams.

The housewife recommends the album to her Instagram followers, who have never heard of Adams, but hang on to the housewife’s every post.

Adams likes the critic; his label likes the housewife.

The tide of influence is changing.
