thats called marketing - and in this day and age, that is how records
are sold.

the majority of people are Nietzsche's 'sheep' - they will only follow
and lack the capacity to think for themselves. if the Big Five say "This
is good" then they will buy it - usually in an attempt to keep up with
their neighbouring sheep.

marketing is the only responsibility for large sales of music.

if one were to look at smaller, independent record companies, then you
would find more interesting answers - /in correlation/ with personality
