The group's manager Allen Kovac is quoted by CR as saying, "Our strategy was to use both the film and music algorithmic echo chamber to have a virtuous circle - each propelling the other to greater heights.
"The audiences have voted on the music streaming platforms and on social media, critics are a thing of the past as Bohemian Rhapsody has shown."
