iTunes #1: Sales Skyrocket For Black Singer Who Wore Pro-Trump Dress To Grammys

Joy Villa Beats Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ For Top Spot

While Adele‘s sweep, Beyonce‘s performance, and Rihanna‘s shut-out are the main topics of discussion post the 2017 Grammy Awards, a little known singer – Joy Villa – garnered her fair share of attention after her stunt on the ceremony’s red carpet.

As we revealed here, the singer/songwriter took to the pre-show affair donning a politically charged, pro-Donald Trump dress that featured the caption “Make America Great Again.”  Earning her an unceremonious slamming from a number of commenters – some of whom even propelled death threats – the move also earned high praise from the sitting president’s supporters.

In fact, so much support Villa woke up to news her 2014 EP, ‘I Make the Static,’ edged out Beyonce for the top spot on iTunes.  This despite Bey having the most talked about performance of the night…

 

Fans of the singer know this isn’t the first time she’s caused a ruckus for her choice of red carpet wardrobe.  Last year she donned this:

    Gaga sold out one arena and the near-extinct monsters are losing their minds.

    I hope you enjoy Monster’s Ball. But you know what they say… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    Now get on your knees and thank Pepsi for making her relevant this month. Most of you will want a refund by March.

    Ghetto Hive mad because Beyoncé tried to “Make Hillary Great Again” and flopped. No AOTY win, no post-Grammy iTunes #1 and no Killary for president‼️

    Maybe she should call her next album “Cold Pop” and get Sweet Brown to feature on the lead single, “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For Dat”‼️ Maybe she’ll win some BET Awards as they love ghetto goodness‼️ 🍯🍋🐝⏰💽

    The difference between Joy Villa and Chrisette Michelle is that that JV hasn’t made any apologies, rationalizations or tried to calm irrational hatred coming her for way for stance. She defiantly asserted herself and seemingly doesn’t give AF about anybody who might now like her position.

    Not even my type of music, but I’m gonna go ahead and buy her EP just to stick a middle finger up to the naysayers who think that they have the power to shut people down who they disagree with.

    Oh and I think it’s HILARIOUS that Trump’s so-called racist supporters propelled a hipster looking black woman with natural hair to #1 on the charts! Kinda contradicts the narrative that his opposition likes to spin.

      You couldn’t be more wrong. Joy Villa is not a Trump supporter; her M.O. is shock value. She knows how stupid his supporters are so she’s taking advantage of them-and it worked. So you go ahead and buy her EP while she sits back and laughs at your stupidity.

      PS, Chrisette Michelle never apologized for performing for trump.

        She says she IS, in fact, “100% a Donald Trump supporter.” I like a bish who stands firm in her word. I hope she doesn’t “backpedaling and p**** popping” (as James Colwell would say).

        Villa is quoted saying that she supports Trump 100%. Beyond that, OF COURSE she wore that dress for shock value and publicity. Everybody in attendance at the Grammys was there for some kind of PR gain. In her case, it worked. And that’s the bottom line here. Even if she was gaming Trump’s supporters, people on the left are acting like supporting DT is career suicide and try to form lynch mobs to keep his supporters quiet. Joy Villa basically challenged that whole narrative and made it weaker because rather than it doing damage, making a show out of supporting Trump HELPED her brand.
