Singer's Trump dress sent her sales skyrocketing

Singer wears 'Make America Great Again' dress at Grammys

Singer Joy Villa wasn't nominated for any Grammy Awards and did not perform during the weekend broadcast, but few people generated as much buzz as she did at this year's event.

The Trump supporters among Twitter users looked favorably upon Villa's decision to wear the political gown calling her "courageous", "brave", and a "true American".

The President Donald Trump-supporting dress of Villa earned reactions from all sides.

Several social media posts have surfaced of Villa appearing to disparage Trump supporters as "stupid" and Trump as a "crazy candidate" in 2016. The set - which sells for only $4.95 in the iTunes Store - could debut in the top 40 of next week's Billboard 200 albums chart (dated March 4, reflecting the data tracking week ending February 16), marking Villa's first chart entry on any Billboard chart. "You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don't", she wrote.

And after Trump's election victory, Villa wrote on Instagram that she will "overcome and persevere". Her Twitter account also boasts she was "Grammy-considered". Her Instagram profile lists her as a "Grammy Considered Artist" (and no, that isn't an actual thing) who moonlights as an actress and "Awarded Vegan Bodybuilder".

WND's requests for comment from Villa and two of her publicists hadn't been returned at the time of this report.

Villa and the gown's designer, Andre Soriano, joined "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to discuss the thought process behind the dress. I think we can all agree on that. I'm from the Philippine islands. She's also in the number one spot on Amazon Music as well. I am a minority, Joy is black. "Your support and love have changed the nation's dialogue from one of hate to that of love and acceptance".

When Soriano was asked about his political beliefs, he responded by saying that he is a proud American and stated that he believes that he is an example of the American dream.
