Jay R has fulfilled his dream of having his own record label called Homeworkz. The singer decided to put up a record label so that he can give independent artists the chance to break into the Philippine music scene.
“Maraming artists dito na magagaling na medyo nahihirapan makapasok sa music industry so I made Homeworkz para I can give opportunities with these artists. Matagal na ring hindi sila nagalabas ng record so through Homeworkz they can put it out. Ang galing nila pero mahirap makapasok so with Homeworkz we're promoting OPM talaga, original music, no cover. Talagang we’re trying to give life to OPM talaga,” he said.
Jay R shared that most of the artists under his label are his friends and family members. “Well they’re mostly my friends and I also have my sister at talagang ‘yung mga nakikita ko na masisipag sa music talaga na ‘yun ang gusto ko.” He relayed that they really work hand-in-hand in order to grow more as a label and to help boost the career of the respective artists under the label. “Tulungan kami lahat kahit ako na ang pinaka-head I feel like the entire Homeworkz is my partner.”
The singer also commented on the positive feedback about his performances on Your Face Sounds Familiar. He admitted that he never thought that his performances would be well-received. “Ako naman wala naman akong expectations. When I go to work, the only expectation I have is for me to work hard, to give my best. ‘Yung nangyari na pumutok ang Your Face talagang happy na happy ako na ganon ang nangyari.”
Jay R considers Melai Cantiveros and Nyoy Volante as his biggest competitors on the show. “Si Melai may charm siya eh ang galing ng charm niya, talagang komedyante pa rin siya. Si Nyoy naman very versatile, kaya niyang gawin lahat kaya sila ‘yung biggest competitors ko.”
