Jay R on his big Hollywood break: ‘It’s a dream come true for me’


122016-Jay-R_PUSH.jpgJay R has gotten his biggest Hollywood break to date. The RnB king’s single “L.O.V.E” from his album Elevated is part of the soundtrack of the romantic comedy movie The Bounceback starring Shemar Moore, Bill Bellamy and Nadine Velasquez.

He also graced the red carpet during the premiere of the movie at the TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, California last December 6.


“It’s a dream come true for me. Any artist would love to be in a soundtrack that’s part of a Hollywood movie. Yes, this is the first time my music will be part of a Hollywood movie,” he said, which was reported by the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“I had no idea that they were eyeing my song for the movie. They just saw that ‘L.O.V.E.’ was perfect for the scene in the movie. There wasn’t any audition. They just choose and score the movie with music they see fit for the film,” he added.

Jay R also gave credit to his US-based producer friends for helping him out. He also added that it would also be great if his songs would soon be part of the local teleseryes and movies.
