The Philippines King of R&B JayR’s latest album “Elevated” has been certified GOLD! JayR received his Gold Record award from Philippine Association of Record Industry (PARI) Chairman Atty. Marivic Benedicto assisted by Homeworkz Music’s Events & ADProm Officer Perry McDonald (January 22) on ASAP.

“Elevated” is released under JayR’s own independent record music label, HomeworkZ Music. The album sold more than 7,500 units.

Comprised of 14 outstanding all original tracks with collaborations from Kyla, Mica Javier, Q-York, Gabi Wilson, Jhing, Jimmy Muna, Marié Dibgy, AJ Rafael and Kris Lawrence.

One of the songs on the album entitled “L-O-V-E” was lucky enough to be part of a Hollywood movie soundtrack “Bounce Back” starring Shemar Moore, Nadine Velasquez and Bill Bellimy. He even attended the red carpet movie premiere at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood last December 2016.


“Kahit all original ang album ko na Elevated nag-Gold pa rin. Ibig sabihin nun buhay na buhay ang OPM. Next level is Platinum. I’m so proud that my first album produced under my own label is making waves,” the Award-winning singer/producer posted on his social media after the surprised awarding.

“Elevated” is still available at all Astroplus, AstroVision and Odyssey record bars nationwide and on digital downloads via Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Apple Music, Deezer, and other digital music retailers worldwide.

JayR is currently seen every Sunday on ABS-CBN’s Sunday variety show ASAP and part of “Soul Sessions” along with Kyla, Jason Dy, Daryl Ong and KZ Tandingan. He has also a radio show “The Bloq Party” on Wave 89.1 every Sunday 4-6PM with Q-York and Maddy Madz. JayR is set to release an all-original Tagalog album within the year.
