Trump Dress Singer Enjoys Skyrocketing Sales

Joy Villa
Joy Villa's music sales have skyrocketed after the singer wore a pro-Trump dress at Sunday night's 59th annual Grammy Awards.

When she arrived at the Grammys, Villa flung off a white frock to reveal a gown of patriotic red, white and blue that urged "Make America Great Again" and had "Trump" in sparkly letters on the back hem.

FoxNews reports the 25-year-old's EP "I Make the Static" jumped to the top of Amazon's top digital paid albums and reached number seven on the iTunes top album chart after her red carpet appearance.

"I am 100 percent a Trump supporter. I believe in his message, I believe he will run this country like he runs his life, successfully," Villa told Fox News. "I stand as a proud American and I stand for a unified America that is tolerant of each other no matter who we voted for. I stand behind our President because that's the American thing to do. I believe in love, above all."

The singer also explained her controversial look on Instagram.

"Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don't. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree," she wrote after her red carpet appearance.

The dress' designer, Andre Soriano, said on Instagram the gown is a "tribute [to] OUR President Of The United States Of America" adding the hashtag #MAGA.

On Feb. 12 and 13, the album sold around 15,000 copies (according to Nielsen Music) -- up from a negligible figure in the days leading up to the Grammys. Industry sources suggest that if the album continues to be a surprisingly hot seller, it could move over 35,000 copies for the week, which could enable a top 10 debut (and grant Villa her first entry on any Billboard chart).
