Joy Villa, the singer who made news at the Grammy Awards for wearing an eye-catching dress adorned with President Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again,” debuts in the top 15 of the Billboard 200 chart with her album I Make the Static. The set, released in 2014, enters at No. 12 on the March 4-dated list, earning 29,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 16, according to Nielsen Music. The set sold 27,000 copies, all from digital downloads, with both sums up from a negligible amount in the week previous.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
The debut of I Make the Static grants Villa her first entry on any Billboard chart. The set also lands at No. 6 on Top Album Sales, No. 1 on Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums and Catalog Albums and No. 2 on Digital Albums.
