Joy Villa’s Album Sales Explode After ‘Make America Great Again’ Grammys Dress

  • Save

What happens when you wear a pro-Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ dress at an anti-Trump event?  Just ask Joy Villa.

American singer Joy Villa, also known as Princess Joy Villa, is a relatively unknown singer.  Or at least she was, prior to the 59th Grammy Awards.  The Grammy-nominated singer wore a provocative dress designed by Andre Soriano.

Villa’s dress, decked out in red, white, and blue, proudly proclaimed “Make America Great Again” followed by “Trump.”

This isn’t the first time that Joy Villa has made headlines for her controversial outfits.  At the 2015 Grammys, she wore an orange see-through dress made of construction fencing material.  The following year, she wore yet another see-through dress made of fabric spikes.

None of those really worked.  There wasn’t enough shock value.  The Trump stunt, however, got the attention Villa was looking for.

On February 12 and 13, Billboard reports that her 2014 album, “I Make the Static,” sold 15,000 copies.  On the days leading up to the Grammys, her albums had sold “a negligible amount of copies.”

Billboard called the 2014 album a “surprisingly hot seller.”

If the album continues on its upward sales trend, it would become a top 10 debut for Villa with 35,000 copies moved.  It would also mark the first time the singer has landed on the Billboard chart.

Sales for the $4.99 album appear to be coming entirely from pro-Trump supporters.  In fact, very few of them had even heard of the singer beforehand.  The latest five-star reviews on iTunes read:


I dig the tunes, especially “Vagabonds” and “Surrender”. Really great rock wit a pop folk vibe. Looking forward to more music from Joy!

Adorable Woman!

I adore this lady. She wore a MAGA gown to the Grammys! I love her. I just bought all her stuff on iTunes.

Thank You

Thank you for Supporting TRUMP!! Will buy from now! Thanks!

The MAGA may have prompted a temporary increase in sales.  However, will the move work her career in the long-term?  And, is any of this about the music?

Villa doesn’t seem concerned.  Following the Grammys Sunday night, Joy Villa spoke with Breitbart about her motivation for publicly wearing the dress.

I was tired of the bullying. I was tired of being pushed down so that I couldn’t say my beliefs. And being fearful of losing sales. Losing fans. Losing bookings [and] contracts and sponsorship.  You know, that’s my day to day.  And a lot of my friends have the same thing.  And we live in Hollywood, which is supposed to be the most open viewpoint city.  But the truth is there was a lot of hate and a lot of negativity and I wanted to change the storyline to love and support and unity as an American.

Villa told reporter Aaron Klein that she wore the dress to bring people together and start a dialogue.

“Like hey, maybe if she is proud of what she believes in maybe I can leave her alone. Maybe I can leave my friend alone. Maybe I can leave my brother alone. Maybe I can actually still love them even though they disagree with my politics. That’s what we need. A little bit of tolerance.”

      So where is all the hate for this? The left have nothing to say, because it don’t fit their agenda. I applaud you for taking a stand.

    Your designer should make a line of clothing like this… I am a proud American and support our new president… he has done more in a month, than Obama in 8 years.. no wait.. Obama played golf and spend our hard earned money on vacations …so I guess he did “something.”
    If ppl don’t like it, then move out of the USA…Many didn’t like our last
    8 years of our leader either, but we didn’t protest “garbage” all day.
    Get a job people and do something productive!

      Please educate us on the great things that Trump as accomplished in the last month?…..All I hear every day is terrible news about the man and I’ve been eager to hear one positive movement on his part. Please share the good news with the rest of us!

        You’ll most likely hear bad news if you’re watching biased media that winter even have him a chance to begin with. Maybe go to the website “Promises Kept” and it will show you a checklist of things which he has done to honestly attempt to better the economy and provide more opportunity for Americans.

    There are so many people out there protesting EVERYTHING that Trump does. The ban on immigration? Well, guess what folks, Clinton AND Obama BOTH put a ban on immigration during their presidencies. Did a federal judge tell either one of those presidents that they didn’t have the authority to put such a ban in place? No freaking way! If they had done that to Obama they would have been called a racist! Did people take to the streets in protest of those bans? NO they did not! As for ‘what has he done?’ well it’s a little hard to tell because everything ho has tried to do has been contested by people who are contesting him just because it’s Donald Trump and they didn’t want him to be elected. The majority of the Hollywood types’ and pretty much ALL of the media have decided President Trump shouldn’t have won because they didn’t want him to, so they openly attack his supporters calling them all bigots and racists. As far as I’m concerned if they don’t like it here, they are free to GET THE HELL OUT. No one is forcing them to stay here. But if they are going to stay, then they need to respect the American public who elected OUR PRESIDENT. I stopped going to the movies and I definitely don’t watch any awards shows where all they do is pat each other on the back and bad mouth President Trump. I am boycotting Uber and Nordstrom, just to name a couple. Those who won’t stand up to Hollywood and the media won’t be getting my business. When all of those ‘movie star’s’ movies start bombing because people refuse to support the instigators, maybe they’ll get the hint and shut up, or get the hell out of our country.

      Soooo…all of that emotional upset and devotion to your new leader and you couldn’t come up with one positive thing that he has done?

        He is restoring sanity to the USA, one executive order at a time.


    Well, I guess her music is the only thing they can afford to support Trump since her jewelry, clothing and shoe line are too pricey. Oh wait, Nordstroms just dropped her line and Macy dropped Trump’s line last year. Running out of wares to peddle their goods. Maybe the Russians can afford them because, Flynn, Trump, Pence and Breibart sure as hell won’t once behind bars for treasons. You Anonymous posts need to better keep up with the news. Even the NYT’s fake new (your words) speak to the truth.
